Vybe Urgent Care Port Richmond
Went on a week night, 2 people ahead of me, waited about an hour to be seen. The girl who does your blood pressure, put the cuff on my elbow and it wouldn't get a reading, so she had to put it on my other arm. Doctor came in and spoke to me for all of 3 minutes. Dr. was more focused on whether or not I was single or married, to see if I could have an STD. I clearly stated I was married and had a possible UTI...I've had them before, I know the symptoms. so a day later I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic he prescribed me. I called to let the doctor know, so he could prescribe a different one. Was told I need to come in to be re-evaluated. So now I will have to pay for 2 urgent care visits. I've had allergic reactions to medications before and every other dr/urgent care just called me in a new prescription without having to be seen again. I won't be returning here anymore. I should have just gone to CVS Minute Clinic where they seem more professional.

Today is 6.30.15 (Urgent care's first day opened) I called this morning and spoke to a wonderfully energized lady by the name of Jennifer. (I had to be sure this was or was not the aramingo diner) I decided immediately after the call to walk in (they only take walk ins) and was again greeted by Jennifer and the staff walking around. SUPER clean establishment. Everyone SO friendly. Everyone. SUPER fast too! I really hope this business stays this way and doesnt fall under the pressure of some uncivilized people bc lets face it, it can happen. I hope the next time I would ever have to walk in here, the white walls wont be filled with dirt marks and people respect the place and staff. Best of luck Urgent Care on Aramingo staff! You guys were great today! Thank you!

I saw Dr. Jennifer today. She is not all warm and fuzzy but who cares? She is not rude or mean, just very down to business. That is her personality. Give the lady a break. Check out her educationally background, that is what matters. Her background is very impressive. I did not go to see her for a social visit. I had very little wait, much less than I expected. The young lady at the front desk was very pleasant. I did not know what to expect and I was impressed.
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.
