Memphis Children's Clinic PLLC
my 6 year old twins and my 11 month old daughter have been going to the Memphis childrens clinic since they were born. We have had very little issues with the staff or the physicians. My children have always been well taken care of and the nurses are especially caring and gentle with my kids. I understand that most children's clinics are in high demand and scheduling is often difficult. The wait times are what made me rate them a four star instead of a 5 star. Most of the time I am in to see the doctor no more than 30 minutes past my scheduled appointment time, but I have had to wait more than an hour. However, the doctors are willing to answer all my questions & 2 address any concerns that I may have. The only time I've ever had any issues was when I try to do a walk in on a Saturday at the Bartlett location. They prefer that you call ahead of time and make an appointment. They have acute care at the Kirby center location, which does take walk ins. So that would be the location that I would go to from now on for any acute care issues after hours. the Germantown location is located in the Methodist LeBonheur hospital, and is an especially good clinic if you are close to that one.

5 hours plus is too long to have to wait to be seen with just EMT's taking vitals every 2 hours to keep you quite. I have never had this experience before here, but when you are in pain, every minute counts. RN who wish she could just be treated and go home!!!!!!!
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.
