Most people overlook the fact that trust can be laced with false belief and corruption. I have witnessed this first hand in a personal story I lack the time to share in this context. All I will say is that the events that occured dealing with my Grandma, Dr. Manigold, and a certain someone resulted in my Grandma being stripped of her human values and thrown in the nursing home as if she was a useless animal. This whole situation relied on the basis of trust. If you don't belive me than just ask the doctor himslef. Moving on, I would like you as a fellow person to come up with your own personal defenition of trust. I have learned that trust is easily corruptible, as well as easy to falsly obtain. So next time you are looking for a doctor, I urge you to open your mind to possibilities beyond your comfort zone, and turn your head away from this doctor to trustworthy doctors. Sometimes the best doctor is yourself within. Thank you for your time.
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.
