College Park Family Care Center
College Park Family Care Center is overpriced and unreasonable. They have terrible customer service and when compared with others providers in the area, you are overpaying! They nickel and dime all customers in every area possible, including printing one copy of a medical record for personal use. Avoid this company at all cost, or it will cost you!

We found the front office staff to be unfriendly and most of the medical staff to not be very empathetic. We also did not like that every time we needed to have blood work done we had to drive to a separate lab at a very inconvenient location and then wait a week (or more) for the results to come back. At our new pediatrician the blood is drawn right there in the office and then we hear results within minutes. For a mother of a son that is slightly anemic, the latter is obviously preferable.

Apparently over two years ago, I incurred charges that were coinsurance after my insurance paid. I was never billed for the charges. The first that I knew they existed was when I was served by the sheriff. I called the office and was told that I had to speak to their attorney. I called the attorney who told me they didn't have a copy of the bill. It took several weeks and one court date before I was able to get a copy. After receiving the copy, I do believe that I owe the bill, but did not want to pay the over 60% in fees that were added due to their negligence. I was told that they would prefer to have a judgement and would not waive the fees. I have never experienced anything like this! They claim to be a Christian organization - beware the wolf in sheep's clothes!!!
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.
