Oak Ridge Pediatric Clinic PC
Horribly rude staff. We were going to switch to Oak Ridge Pediatrics from our daughter's previous pediatrician in Knoxville. We contacted them to find out what we needed to do to get an appointment. We switched our insurance and were having her records forwarded over. The staff at oak ridge pediatrics said we had to come in and fill out a form in person for the records to be accepted. 2 hours later we showed up and they said "we are no longer accepting new patients." When we explained that we just spoke to them 2 hours ago and that we had been conversing with them for a week about this, she said "sorry" and closed the reception window in our faces. Now our insurance is already switched to a place we can't go and our old pediatrician has dropped us and won't accept us back since they aren't accepting anymore patients either.Oak Ridge Pediatrics completely screwed us over, and more importantly, our 16 month old daughter with a heart defect. Terrible people.

I have been going to this office for several years. I always thought they were ok until this last visit. Dr. Barongan did a TERRIBLE job with my daughter and then scammed the insurance for the biggest payout. When I called to talk to someone Ms. Lisa "the office manager" was no help at all. Basically said there was nothing I could do about it and the HUNG UP ON ME! We will be switching doctors as soon as possible. I can not believe after all these years and all the people I have referred that they would treat us this was. On a positive note Mary Kathy and Dr. McAllister are great. Too bad the rest of the office isnt worth anything.

Crappy doctor. She charges you what the insurance pays and when you don't have a co-pay she charges you anyway. She is not someone to trust.

Long, David D MD FACS
Dr Long did my mom's surgery and did a wonderful job. He made her feel very comfortable and his bedside manner was awesome. My mom just loved him and that is because he actually made her important. I actually came into her room and found him comfortable sitting in a chair listening to mom tell him all about her brother's cabin on Caryville mountain. She still talks about him although it has been about two years

Meece Terry L MD
I grew up with a few doctors in my family so I was lucky to have good care and good referrals to specialists. They have long retired as I am 70 now. I retired from a long career of teaching around the world and returned to Oak Ridge and I had no physician. I am so grateful that I found Dr. Meece. He knows his medicine but even better, he has such a caring manner. He listens, advises and treats with great compassion. He and his office staff are so patient and kind and I always leave knowing that I am getting the best care possible. He remembers his patients, what they say, and treats me with total respect. I love his office staff and they show his caring attitude also. I'm so privileged to be his patient.
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.
