Donald P Carter MD
I must compliment Dr. Carter and all of his staff. I had to see a specialist for chronic sinus infections and was referred to Dr. Carter. After a few visits it was determined to control my issues we should consider surgery. The option to have surgery was presented to me in sensitive light and I was given every opportunity to try other methods if I was not sure. I decided to go ahead with the procedure. During recovery I was still experiencing what I thought was sinus headaches. Dr. Carter was amazing with working on what the cause would be. I was seen 2 months longer than a regular patient would have to and he was adamant about finding a reason AND solution to this matter. He contacted my regular physician directly to work on possible reasons, continued to exam me and give me alternatives to prescription medications (which I dont like to take). When all was said and done after dissecting my issues with Dr. Carter it is now a matter of hormone issues that may have been a part of my headaches for years on top of the allergies I had! Dr. Carter is one of the most patient, caring and concerned physicians I have come to know, and I work at a hospital full of them! I would recommend him and his entire staff for anyone experiencing ENT issues or concerns.

This doctor will be my childs doctor till they become old enough to go to a regular doctor! She is compasionate, listens and cares. SHe is good at returning your calls when you need her to and do follow up calls when my son was very ill just to see how he was doing. I have recommended her to many people and i will continue to do it.

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.
