Personally I have been very impressed with Peak, especially with Dr. Joe Adragna. I usually don't give reviews and have had numerous different PCP during my past 60 years mostly from living in different cities. Recently I spent 9 days at St. Mary's in GJ after being life flighted there from severe Septic shock, kidney failure, stroke, and numerous other things related to sepsis. When I was released from St.Marys I was seen by Dr. Adragna 2 days after I called for an appt. He has done everything to research my illness and has always kept me well informed as he consults with other specialist about my case. One of the drugs the Dr's prescribed at St.Marys stated having weird side affects on Sunday, I called the service at Peak and told them my concerns and was told to hold for a minute. To my amazement next thing I knew I was speaking to Dr. Joe himself, he answered all my concerns and although his schedule was full for Monday the next day he still told me to come in and see him. Yes I have waited sometimes to see him but we also need to understand there may be someone fitted in that couldn't wait. By the way I have only been to Peak 3 times. Let's give our busy Dr's a break.

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.
