I don't know who you spoke to Chris L. but i had the total opposite. I emailed them first, and told them of my issues, they immediately got back in touch with me, and went above and beyond to help me. 2 weeks later, I was still having insurance problems, I called and talked with Kristina, she was AMAZING. She scheduled me and said she'd bill them anyways, she just wanted to get me in asap. The soonest was still 4 days away, but she promised to call me if they had a cancellation. They are amazing and help sooo much! I will go here always! The email is her name is Bernadeth Paraiso. The phone number I called and asked for Kristina was 352-401-1919. They are amazing and soo helpful. Above and beyond customer service. Plus, their site says they take any and all insurance. They treated me as if I had the most expensive insurance out there!! I loved that!

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Singh. He is very concerned about each of his patients. He takes his time and treats his patients as individuals. He explains your condition in words which are understanable. He goes over test results with you. For example, he went over all aspects f my MRI. Because he takes his time with each patient there is at some times a wait, but this only happens once in a while. You forget about the wait once you see him. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Kevin Marcell Hoddinott, MD
Dr. Hoddinott saved my life! He is the most compassionate, intelligent, and skilled surgeon in the area. I had two extensive surgeries following a 911 call, and was blessed to have Dr. Hoddinott on call. His staff is helpful and caring - and the hospital staff respects him tremendously! I cannot say enough about this man - I am forever indebted to him. God bless him and his staff!

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.
