West, James L III, Dr
I started seeing Dr. Michael Cockrell in 2001, when I had problems with my right shoulder, he preformed surgery and I have had no more trouble with it. Throughout the last 16 years I have seen other doctors from this group and I would recommend them to family and friends. They are compassionate, caring, attentive and follow thru until you are satisfied with your results. I had back surgery 2016, with Dr. James West as the attending physician, he was the one I saw throughout my healing time. He made each follow-up a priority and attended each visit making sure I was doing well, he would not release me until both of us were satisfied with my recovery. I appreciate this group so much, hoping I will not see any of them in the near future, but if I do need an orthopedic doctor, I will continue seeing them. Sincerely,Sheila Croston of Summerdale, Alabama

Randy D Proffitt MD LLC
I recently went to this business after reading the reviews on Google. I was amazed at how clean and nice looking it was. The staff was very friendly and helpful with the questions I had. The nurse was very attentive and helped me get ready to have my pictures taken by the Dr. Dr. Randy Proffitt was extremely professional and nice. I left there feeling good about myself and booked my surgery. I am getting it done two weeks from today! Wish me luck, I am so excited and know I'll look amazing!!!

Lyons, Michael B MD FACS
Dr. Lyons and his staff are wonderful. I have been his patient both for sinus issues and facial plastic plus he performed laser liposuction years ago and I love my results. I get my Botox and fillers plus facials with them often. They are all Christians and treat you like welcome family. I have always been treated with care and understanding and love his beside manner. He also keeps me feeling you and energized with Hormone therapy. I highly recommend this practice to everyone.

Grinstead Julie G MD
Dr Grinstead is nothing short of amazing!!! She treats each patient with such dignity and respect and it had been 8 years since I had seen her when she delivered my first and even though I choose adoption she was so kind thoughtful and respectful and with this pregnancy which I will parent she remembered me and even asked how my son was doing. I adore Dr Grinstead and would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone!!!

Stanton Optical
Sub-par customer service. Tried calling to simply check to see if my glasses had come in and was left on hold for 10 mins before I hung up. When I called back, I was put on hold AGAIN for almost 20 mins. When I called a third time, I finally got this gentlemen to tell me, rudely, they were not in and to check back in 3 weeks. Very disappointed after I was recommended here.

Diagnostic & Medical Clinic
My husband and I have been going to DMC for about 6 years and are very satisfied. Having so many specialists in one building is very convenient. Their lab is super fast. We first started going there when my husband became very ill, Dr. Whetstone showed true concern & worked until the issue was found. If it wasn't for him I don't think my husband would be here today.

I had a great experience at Dr. Proffitt's office just the other day. Everyone was incredibly courteous and very professional. I would definitely recommend Dr. Proffitt to any person that needs any type of plastic surgery and I know he works on call at many hospitals - Providence, Springhill and Mobile Infirmary so he's always in practice with something!

Wallace Jr Milton A MD
Dr. Wallace is very knowledgeable, very talented, compassionate and caring doc. He has always been there for me and my family with professional solutions that work for us. Always would recommend him to anyone who needs help with bones and joints. He always goes out of his way to take care of my brother who has special needs.

Dr. James Knox Simpson III, MD
Very professional staff and he is wonderful. He removed polyps from my husband and has monitored him for past 6 years closely. I liked him and appreciated him explaining everything to me. He checked my colon too, although the procedure is not pleasant, they made me as comfortable as possible
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.
