MedExpress Urgent Care
We have been to this clinic twice. Once a couple of months ago and again today. Both times this place was fantastic! The facility was spotless, the staff extremely helpful from the moment you walk in the door. Service was prompt and professional. We spend two weeks a month in Pittsburgh and we will come back to MedExpress again if needed. By the way today the doctors felt that our duaghter needed more specialized care than they had and quickly suggusted we go to a hospital. Thank you for being professional and honest. This place offers great care!!!

Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center
The staff at the ASLC is marvelous. I got tired of having to put on makeup every day and decided to try permanent eye makeup. WOW. What a fabulous experience. I was a bit worried beforehand but it didn’t hurt at all. The eye liner is perfect and I get great compliments wherever I go. And, those extra 10 minutes in the morning were worth spending the money. I highly recommend you consider it. You will love it. A+++++++

Women's Choice Network
Women's Choice Network in Pittsburgh is an awesome source of support to those individuals who are looking for help on making a decision about abortion or parenting. The ladies really helped me through a tough season in my life. I didn't know how or what I was going to do. The support helped me make the best decision. I'm grateful to all of you.

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.
