Kirk G Bowden, Do - Bowden Kirk G Do
So far, I've only seen Dr. Bowden three times. On my first visit, he prescribed a worthless pain medication for me. I can't really blame him, as he was ordering the last medication that my family doctor had prescribed. He was not aware that I had told my family doctor that that particular medication was completely useless. On my second visit, we discussed the bad medication and without hesitation, he changed it to something much more effective. Also, I have had spinal injections in the past. Every time I have had them, it has been extremely painful. The doctors who had done them acted very rushed, as if they were trying to break a record for how many injections they could whip out in one day. Dr. Bowden took his time and inserted the needles very gently, and injected the medication slowly. This procedure is never pleasant, but Dr. Bowden and the assistants working with him truly cared about the patient's comfort and well being. The procedure was done on an out-patient basis at Mountain Vista Medical Center. The registered nurses, other medical professionals and the volunteers provided exceptional care. They brought me coffee just the way I like it, they offered me pillows and blankets, too, as it was a bit chilly in the room. Throughout the process, not only was Dr. Bowden present, but also at least 4 nurses and a couple of volunteers, who checked in every now and again. To sum it up, the staff of Pain Management Associates at Hedley Orthopedic Institute and the staff and volunteers at Mountain Vista Medical Center provide a level of service that is professional and caring, while at the same time making the client comfortable by making a joke or simply letting them know that they care and understand.

Hurst-Wicker, Karl S, MD
Dr. Karl Hurst-Wicker is knowledgeable and his skills are superior to any other pain doctors I have seen. He understands myofascial pain the appropriate treatments, and all other related procedures for conditions that cause chronic pain. I have had multiple ultrasound guided trigger point injections and SI spinal injections. He is gentle and it is my pleasure to work with such a compassionate person who listens and takes my complaints seriously. In my 10+ years as pain care consumer, I have never experienced what it means to have a physician who works as a team member to investigate the right treatments for me. He is not only willing to collaborate, he embraces it and puts my outcome above all else so that I can live as productively as possible despite living with daily pain. And while my opioids are prescribed by my rheumatologist, he understands that I need them to function and participate in therapies that help my multiple pain conditions. I appreciate what a difference a team effort can make, I appreciate his willingness to explain why he thinks certain things will help more than others will. I trust him explicitly, and I recommend Dr Hurst-Wicker to anyone who lives with chronic pain.

Southwest Urologic Specialist PC
David Grossklauss has been my Urologist for several years, after initially diagnosing me with a kidney tumour following haematuria.All the investigative procedures and eventual surgery, including follow up visits have shown an abnormally high level of professionalism, care, and concern, even to answering their telephones after 9 pm when I had a post operative emergency. Dr Grossklauss is a joy to meet, his beside manner is old school, his personality is warm, caring, and supportive. You know he is listening to you.I have no hesitation whatsoever commending him and his practice to anyone in need of urological services.

Gazda, Cliff
Dr. Gazda was extremely personable and put both my husband and I at ease with any questions we had during our appointment. With expecting our first child, he gave us helpful information regarding what to expect before we could even figure out what questions to ask -he anticipated perfectly! Dr. Gazda came highly recommended and we would refer him to friends in an instant!

Paragon Medical Associates
AWESOME doctors! I have never been treated better than by the medical professionals there (I have seen 3 of them- especially dr. Udall). I care about my health and making sure i'm taken care of... not how bubbly or on time the front desk staff is. honestly, i don't understand some people who take time to review negatively based on one bad experience. We all have bad days

I have had treatment for my Macular degeneration in other offices with other doctors and find Dr. Kim and her staff to be the most efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable of them all. I used to treat the infections but not now. Dr. Kim makes everything from putting the gadget on to holding the eye open to the painless injection and she is very good.

The office staff was great. Sheryl checked me in quickly. I was back to the room in a flash. Jamie, the MA was so nice and thorough. Angela is always so professional, and Dee gave me the care info quickly and I was out the door. I really appreciate the way I was treated in every step of my visit today.

The first time I went I had an appointment with Dr. O. I instantly was so impressed with her, I suggested my husband see her also. We both think she and her staff are wonderful. Her demeanor and rapport makes one feel very comfortable. She makes you feel important and concerned.

I appreciate the care and concern I've received caring for my eyes while in Arizona for 5-6 months per year. Two good doctors allowing me to have the lifestyle that has been great for my retirement years.
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.
