BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD AT A DOCTOR. On my first day celebrating spring break as a college student, I started feeling severely ill. Trying to avoid te hassle and cost of a doctor I was really avoiding going to beach med express. However, my symptoms became unbearable and I decided I must go. Before arriving, I phoned the clinic to see if they take appointments (they don't) but the lovely lady at reception told me if I came now, the wait wouldn't be long. Upon arrival, I was greeted with compassion of what you would expect with a long tkme friend. I even had issues where I did not have my correct insurance card, and they went above and beyond what was Asked if them to make sure I was able to see a doctor. I was taken back and screened by a wonderful male doctor who ran various diagnostic rests and maintained a friendly atmosphere. Once meeting with Dr Jeanie, I knew that this was the best decision I could have made. She was caring, humorous and had my best intentions at heart. Her goal was to make sure I was feeling better as soon as possible. I have never been treated as kind and compassionate by any other doctors. If I wasn't from Pennsylvania, I wouls 100% make Dr jeanie my primary physician. At the end of my visit, I was even offered free dippin dots because Dr is owner of company.I have never been more thankful for effective and careful medical treatment. Have no hesitations, this is THE BEST place to go! Thank you to all of the staff at beach med express, you made a completely miserable situation a lot better. You all have the kindest of hearts and hope you realize how much your patient interaction outshines other medical professionals I have ever experienced.

I had a severely sprained ankle with foot trauma and went to my normal family doctor and was turned away when they saw it and told to go to the E.R Before going to the ER, I stopped into Beach Medical Express to see if they would see me as I did not think this was an injury for the ER and did not want to spend that type of money. I was seen within minutes of showing up and had an x-ray done ON SITE! The staff was very accommodating and handled my injury very professionally. Virginia Pullen was the P.A on staff at the time and took the time to explain my injury and I felt that I was in very good hands with her. The staff even took the time to wrap and set my foot. My experience with them has been amazing I have since been back for a kidney stone they are my go to for medical needs now thank you so much Beach Medical Express and staff!!!!

My wife found Beach Medical Express when we needed an emergency school physical. My son was seen quickly on a Saturday, the prices were affordable and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The next time, my wife had a serious need of medical attention, I was impressed with the Doctor's knowledge and the treatment that she provided. Yesterday I had my first personal experience, and was more than pleased! I needed treated for an ear infection and went in on my lunch break. I was seen and treated so quickly that I still had time to get lunch. My family and I will use Beach Medical Express whenever we have the need! Thanks SO much!-Greg Sawyer

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.
