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.

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
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.
