My husband woke up to a high grade fever, chills and lower abdominal cramping. The walk in clinic we went to, recommended we go to the hospital. My husband stayed at this hospital previously and had a bad experience, which turned out to be our doctor, not the hospital. We were seen immediately. The nurses and the PA were wonderful. The doctor was very nice. They did a cat scan which turned out to be what they suspected- diverticulitis. They administered pain medicine and prescribed antibiotics. My husband was admitted and discharged within 4 hours, which was wonderful. i would go back to this hospital again, if needed.

NURSE Norma 3rd floor shift 3000 wings. The most un thoughtful worst nurse and doesn't care about family or patients. She forced me out of visiting cause I wanted to stay over night with my fiance before her surgery. She said it wasn't part of the deal. Like really? Everything was good until one nurse messes it up for the whole hospital. She is a poor image as a nurse and bad reflection on the practice and hospital. Smh

Great surgeon but expect to keep waiting up to two hours for any "scheduled" appointment. I value my time but this is ridiculous. Every time, never fails. And the receptionist needs to be retrained. She is rude and can never seen to handle appointments, paperwork insurance etc. Nothing is not an easy transition

Dr. Veltri was good...fast but good and thorough. Mary, who answers the phone" was not not nice. She was condescending, unsympathetic, and just rude. She should not be in this line of work.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
