Hicks Kimberly MD
Dr Hicks it is absolutely phenomenal. She made very early diagnosis of prostate cancer , which allowed to give him early treatment which saved his life. She also took the time to listen and worked with me on my own diagnosis which could have very well gone undetected for a very long time. She takes the time and opportunity to make sure that our patients are well cared for. Her staff is absolutely The A-Team. Her receptionist Natalie goes beyond the call of duty all the time to make sure that that office is running smoothly and efficiently. If you're looking for a doctor that cares and is efficient this is the place to go. Where else can you get squeezed in for a late-afternoon appointment because you're sick. It doesn't happen that much anymore. Kudos to dr. Kimberly Hicks and her entire staff.

This is Dr. Silkiss responding to the 10/10/2015 review. I do not know who you may be. In nearly three decades of practice, we have always maintained the highest ethical standards. If someone has a billing concern, we would be pleased to resolve the concern in a meaningful way. If, in fact, the bill has been paid and we have made a mistake, we would like to get to the bottom of this. Please contact the office. Dr. Silkiss

I had minor surgery performed here by Dr. Moorstein. From my initial consultation to my post-surgery visit, I found all the staff very professional, courteous, and friendly. The procedure itself was done in an excellent manner by an awesome doctor.

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.
