Exer - More Than Urgent Care
This will be my go to Urgent Care facility in Northridge. The clinic is clean and bright and very comfortable. All of the staff were professional and friendly. Although no one really wants to have to go to Urgent Care this was really a very pleasant experience! They even gave me my prescription right there before I left so I didn't have to stop at the drugstore on the way home. I would highly recommend Exer.

Exer - More Than Urgent Care
Wonderful experience at the new Exer urgent care clinic in Northridge! The staff and doctor were so friendly and helpful. We were seen right away and never left alone for very long. This office is our new go to urgent care. Doesn't hurt that it's in a nice shopping center and has a big parking lot too!

Exer - More Than Urgent Care
This urgent care is nice and clean. The staff response is quick and attentive. Most urgent care facilities I've seen have bordered on frightening but not Exer. I felt much more comfortable there than any other location that either my husband or myself needed to visit in the past.

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.
