Valley Obstetrics & Gynecology
I have been a patient of Dr. Melendez for 3 years, and would have liked to continue care under him. The office staff (both American Fork and Orem) are abhorrent. Several instances have made me reconsider continuing as a patient, yet Dr. Melendez' care had managed to quell my doubts every time. But this is the last straw. I waited TWO months to get in, and unexpectedly ended up having to be out of state on the scheduled visit. I called ahead to notify them and was told it would be another 1.5 months before I could be seen again. I asked if I could keep the appointment and do a phone consultation, as I have a history of health issues and alarming medical concerns that I have been waiting patiently to address. I was told they "don't do that"- really? The doctor doesn't talk to patients? The staff was so rude and indifferent to my concerns. I'll absolutely be finding a new OB-GYN office.
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.
