Niagara Falls Urgent Care
I was diagnosed with the flu today. As a college student at NU it is very hard when you get very sick and your parents are there to help. The staff here made me feel comfortable and connected with me on a warm level. The nurses got me water, came in and checked on me, gave me a remote to the tv and gave me tissues. I would highly recomend people to come here if they're I'll. For me, this was the closest thing before this place opened was in tonawanda. So thankful for this place!

Niagara Falls Urgent Care
The Niagara Falls Urgent Center does not open up until February. I cant wait for them to open, it will be much better than sitting in the ER waiting room for hours. This is something the community has been in a great need of.
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.
