Dr. Carolyn LaCour
Dr LaCour is the most excellent psychologist I've ever had. She listens to everything I say and answers and guides me brilliantly. She is super focused on me in our sesseions, is compassionate, genuinely concerned with me and what's going on in my life. She is phenomenally insightful and isn't afraid to ask the "hard" yet necessary questions. She always gets to the heart of whatever matter we are discussing. She is always available to me, day or night, and she truly cares for her patients. I feel totally comfortable discussing EVERYTHING with her. She is a gem of a doctor and I would not ever change to any other psychologist EVER. Mere words cannot express her commitment and all of her many attributes. I highly recommend her. In 7 weeks she has helped me negotiate through many tough life issues already and I know that I can completely trust her. She is the absolute best!
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.
