Summit Urgent Care
Really disappointing and frustrating. Usually this clinic is fine for aftercare but does not take place of my PCP. Tonight I was treated rudely and unfairly. I came in shortly before closing, was rushed through blood pressure with a cuff too small which caused pain and broken blood vessels on my arm. When I politely said I do not feel comfortable with the Z- pax prescribed as my husband had a life threatening reaction to it before and requested a different prescription I was treated rudely and as though I was not being honest by the female PA. So disappointing that a sick patient can come in and be treated so unkindly, whether I arrived at 8:50or not. Makes me appreciate my PCP all the more. Some of the staff have been very kind but the experience this evening with these two ladies was a great disappointment.

Dr. Glenn Mark McAlpin, MD
Dr McAlpin is a fantastic surgeon. He cares deeply about his patients and takes nothing from the hospital administration when it comes to his patients. He saved my life and has been my family's surgeon since he has been in Newnan. It's a crying shame that Piedmont administration kept harassing him to the point he is leaving Newnan. He will be greatly missed by me and my family.

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.
