The Medical Assistant "Yvonne" is so rude and short. She doesn't even take the time to understand your medical background. Worst medical experience.

don't even go there . . . the doctor "wacko" thinks he can do everything and doesn't want you to go to any other doctor. he thinks VIP Urgent Care is a private medical center. Drive right on by and go have lunch.

Dr. Rosenblum and his staff are wonderful. I have been in pain management for several years, all over the country, and I have to say that Dr. Rosenblum is the most knowledgeable and caring Physician I have ever dealt with. I only wish more Doctors were like him.Thank You

VIP Urgent Care
I have taken my oldest daughter here twice. The first time the doctor told me that my daughter had fifth's disease when I knew she had hives. I asked if I could give her benedryl (she was only a year old at the time) and she said, "If you want to drug her to make her sleep, you can." don't want to drug my child. She refused to believe that my daughter had hives, didn't prescribe anything, and sent us on our way. The next morning we took her to our regular pediatrician and he confirmed the hives, gave us the proper dosage of benedryl and she was fine in 5 days. So, one bad experience wasn't enough I thought I'd give them another shot. Now she's 3 years old and has come down with a cold which has made it hard for her to breathe at night. As in, we had to take her into the bathroom with the hot shower on so the steam could help her breathe. The doctor ignored that fact, no matter how much we repeated it and simply said, "It's not the season for croup or bronchitis" and prescribed Robitussin saying that she's close enough to 4 years old so it should be alright. Needless to say, we didn't pick up the prescription and have now felt like we've wasted our money twice trusting them with our daughter's health. Never again.
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.
