I was referred to Dr. James 3 yrs ago by a Therapist/Counselor that I was seeing for severe anxiety and depression due to childhood sexual abuse. My Therapist's duties were to care for my emotional state of mind & recommended that I get on medication to help ease my anxiety, b/c most all Therapists/Counselors are not certified to prescribe medications so I went to Dr. James right away to get an accurate diagnosis and the proper doses of medication that I had tried and failed many many times before to get from my Primary Care Dr. The reason that never worked in the past is b/c PC Doctors do not specialize in Medication Management for Psychiatry Disorders and they are the one's wrongfully prescribing anxiety/antidepressants to their patients. Dr. James is extremely knowledgeable about the proper dosages of meds to prescribe her patients; she was a prayer answered for me in my situation. As I read some of these negative and uneducated comments on these websites, I can't help but wonder, are you aware that she is NOT a Therapist/Counselor that sits w/ you for hour long sessions while you lay on a couch to work out your problems? She specializes in "Medication Management!" It's in the title of her specialty! I suggest doing your research before you choose a Doctor; everyone should know this already. Finding a good Therapist/Counselor to work through your issues is the first step & if that Therapist/Counselor determines that you need medication, then Dr. James is an excellent Doctor to help you. Some have said they feel like cattle being herd through her office and dismissed by her demeanor. I have never felt like "livestock" being herd through just so she can take my money. I'm very thankful that my visits are speedy and to the point with Dr. James, that means I have to take less time off work for appts! Also, I have seen Dr. James literally put her own self into dangerous situations, like having an office in downtown OKC in a not so good area, just to be available to help her patients. She used to have several offices all over the the Metro, just so that her patients have easy access to her services. I commend and respect her drive and determination to help patients/people/human beings of every sort of background, social status, etc. You get my point. That is what a good Doctor should be doing!! She actually cares for PEOPLE, and that is hard to come by these days with Doctors. I want to personally thank Dr. James for all that you do!!!

I want to begin by saying that I completely get what the others are saying regarding this doctor. The first time I met her I was frustrated. I was told that once I got there that we need to take our daughter to a counselor because she (Dr. James) is a medication ONLY Psychiatrist. Psychiatric/counseling services are done with another doctor that should communicate with Dr. James. I was shocked as well because we are not from Oklahoma. I also use Tricare and I think the miscommunication is with most medical insurances. Dr. James was a bit hard to get to know. We seen her once a month for about 10 minutes. She did communicate with the counselor and got the information she needed because I requested it from the counselor. I do agree that the communication should be WAY better. It took about 5 months of visits to get to know her a bit. We love her now. She has an office in Norman, Moore and works also on contract at an office in OKC as well as the hospital and she has FINALLY started getting the weekends off. She is a great doctor and her office is VERY relaxed. I do think that she should have them dress in scrubs and that some Black/white noise fans should be used. There is obviously room for improvement but she is a very nice person. Seems shy but she really cares about us. She is also VERY lenient with missing appts and so on. I hope this helps~

I've been taking my children to Dr. Harmon for 13 years. I have the upmost trust in Dr. Harmon and her PA. However, the office staff is always rude and make it very difficult to schedule appointments. They won't schedule an appointment more than one day out at a time! This makes it almost impossible to accommodate any one's working schedule and is the least patient focused practice I have experienced. Every time I speak to a front office employee I tell myself I am finding another doctor based on the unprofessionalism of the staff. I wonder if Dr. Harmon realizes how many people her staff have run off. Wait, you can't email or tell her because the front office won't release that information! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!

in a nation where the govt knows no peace and soldiers return home to no jobs and Veterans can easily die before being treated by the Veterans Administration trusting the US govt with your health care when they label US Veterans as 'terrorists', govt health care performed by a government which kills every entity they encounter sounds much like suicide. Dr Alina Justiz is an exceptionally well qualified and courteous physician and every encounter at her place of business has been a pleasure - very professional, clean, courteous and respectful. Dr Justiz far exceeds any other physician I've ever encountered

I've been with Dr. James for the past 3 years and have seen the ups and downs of her practices. When I first started seeing the doctor it was your typical office with long waiting times and generic staffing but after the years the offices have developed well with efficient scheduling times and short waiting periods. I'm sure everyone else just LOVES waiting for 30 minutes to an hour just for a follow up with the doctor but now i'm able to be seen and rescheduled in just under 30 minutes. Definitely recommend her if you are looking for a hassle free doctors experience.

Dr. Mirza treated me for high calcium in my blood which I had been experiencing for 4 years with none of my other doctors able to find a real solution. I had severe osteoporosis due to the calcium not getting to my bones. When I was referred to her, she ran the necessary tests and found it was a tumor on the parathyroid. She called me personally during the CHRISTMAS Holidays to give me the report! I love her! I had the necessary surgery and now have normal bone density!

Great bunch of Drs & PAs dedicated to giving top notch care. They are compassionate & take the time to listen their patients. Appointments are in a timely manner & knowing you can always just walk in if needed is something not many practitioners do anymore. I won't be seeing anyone else! Highly recommend this great bunch of guys

Love, love, love this dr!! I have 3 boys and she has been their only pediatrician, 9 years now! Her nurse Coe is the best!!! And the rest of the office staff are great!!!!!! I trust Dr Harmon and Coe 100% with my children and I am not a very trusting person. Take your children here, you won't be disappointed.

He's a great doctor. Very professional and his nurse is very nice too! The front desk and check out can be very rude. They don't let patients know if the doctors are running behind. The wait can be over an hour.

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.
