Childrens Hospital & Medical Center
Children's hospital is wonderful, great place. The only thing I don't understand is how UNMC and Children's hospital could not hire someone professional to be a receptionist for the pediatric dentistry. I have not ever encountered such careless attitude in the past. There are probably million ways to deliver the same message, this receptionist leaves you feeling very unwelcome, used and you get an impression that they don't actually care about you. Talked to her 3 times and every time it's getting worse. Don't get me wrong they have wonderful doctors and assistants there and the place is extremely nice, but I was shocked by the answers this receptionist gave me and the tone she talked to me. Can't even remember having such a poor service anywhere else. And especially have not expected to get it there.

ROCKBROOK URGENT CARE
I have been to Rockbrook Urgent Care several times with family members and have always been pleased with their care. Nice to know about when things happen and you need to be seen right away.
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.
