Megna Jose M MD
We've taken our son to Dr. Megna since he was a newborn. He's a very gentle doctor who seems to genuinely care. Our son had jaundice when he was born and Dr. Megna called us up on both a Saturday and Sunday from home to check on him. Be aware that he is from Argentina and has a thick accent making him difficult to understand sometimes. I haven't had any reason to mistrust the training he received in Argentina, but it is difficult to understand some medical terms when he is speaking. My only complaint would be about the nurses in his office. They just don't seem very professional. One completely contradicted him when he left the room and insinuated he didn't know what he was talking about by saying, "Keep in mind he was trained in some other country." My wife and I couldn't believe that she would undercut him like that.

We had such a great experience with this Vet! We live in Ottawa, and took our 9 month old dog down to get neutered, because we had heard the vet services in the US were much more affordable! Town and Country were absolutely amazing- so caring and attentive to our dog Brixton, they took such great care of him, and really put my mind at ease! I was slightly concerned after reading such negative reviews online, but I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them! It has been almost 2 weeks since Brixton's procedure, and he has healed like a dream! I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at the Town & Country Vet Clinic! I would highly recommend them- the price of the procedure was unbeatable and the service they offer is fantastic!

I cannot recommend this vet clinic enough. After my cat was diagnosed with bladder stones at an Ottawa clinic, I shopped around for surgery prices. Town and Country quoted me 1/3 of the price that I was quoted in Ottawa for the same surgery and associated services. Ontario prices are ridiculous. I would have even saved money had I taken a limo down to Ogdensburg. The vet and staff at Town and Country were very friendly, knowledgeable and competent. I would recommend Town and Country vet clinic to any pet in need of surgery.

When my dog was hit by a car last night the first clinic I called turned us away. Town and Country was my 3rd or 4th call and the only clinic willing to see a new patient after-hours on a Sunday night. Thank God for Dr Nicki! She saved our puppy when no one else would and the clinic is letting me make payments on the bill, even though it wasn't outrageous, they were very understanding when I told them I can't afford much. I will definitely be bringing my pets to them in the future.

The staff were extremely friendly and the prices compared to Ottawa were incredible. I would highly recommend this clinic to any of my friends. My dog just returned from a dental surgery. Her teeth are super white and the cost was a quarter of what I would have paid in Ottawa. Check it out.

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.
