Dr. Anuradha Gowda, MD
My 23 yr old son was a patient. Past tense bc after his last round of referrals, he said he is done. Finally after many visits about his heart, he gets a referral for an echo. Echo completed. Results to Gowda, and possibly a nurse called to tell him he has Left ventricular hypertrophy. Again, he gets another referral, now to see a cardiologist. Why wasn't that done in the first place? He's had this same complaint for 6 months! Plus, the nurse didn't give him anymore information - SERIOUSLY. I called today and was informed that Dr. Gowda does not send letters to give follow ups from test. Hmmm, could you have taken 5 minutes to let him know the seriousness of the condition? We had to Google. Do you really care about your patients? Maybe the blank ratings on this page could be a clue. I've never met this person, never been treated but this has left a bitter taste.

William C Christie MD
Unprofessional. Poor communication. I had a terrible experience at Dr. Christie's surgery unit. I was to have a cataract removed this morning at 6:15. I checked into the eye surgery unit in Cranberry Twp., Pa on time. I had my copay taken via credit card then was escorted to the surgery waiting area which resembles an assembly line and has little privacy. I was questioned about detailed matters and was asked about using prescribed eye drops. What eye drops? I never received a script for anything at my initial exam way back in August. Nor was it mentioned on recent pre-surgery calls from his office. The focus of those calls was more about $$$. The nurse then went to Dr. Christie to inform him I hadn't used the pre-op eye drops. He walked over to me, and confronted me ... rudely ... on why I didn't use the eye drops. I informed him I knew nothing about them. He rudely told me it was in the packet given to me in August. I said, "No scripts were in my packet'. He got angry at that point and states, "This surgery is cancelled!!". However, the nurse just continued on prepping me. This confused me but I thought, maybe she knows something I don't. For instance, this is his routine early morning rant. She started an IV. Another lady comes in and asks where the check for $3745 is? What? I was putting this on Care Credit. She says they know nothing about that. THEY INTRODUCED CARE CREDIT TO ME! I would never have brought a check with me. I would have put it on my Capital One for points. I was totally confused because the person who called me from their office about money said I was "Good to go" but needed a copay. In the meantime, my nurse seems to be oblivious to the matter and continues to prep me and ask medical questions. She wasn't warm either. A few minutes later, another nurse comes over and removes my IV stating the Dr. Christie has again cancelled my surgery. Maybe more to do with no check than not using eye drops which were not prescribed. Horrible! Very poor! Done!

Jennifer Fierle DO
Dr. Fierle and Aaron Difillipo took the time to find me Xanax that I could afford. Mr. Difillopo returns my calls and takes lots of time to find the solution to my problems. He is caring and thoughtful and no question is ever too much. Along with Dr. Fierle who has the same personality they make a great team. I can't thank them enough.Carol Peluso

Gateway Eye Associates
The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. My dissatisfaction is with the never-ending emphasis on pushing clients to purchase lenses and frames (and procedures). What is supposed to be a medical exam always ends up feeling like a sales seminar. I understand that a large part of their profit comes from the sale of lenses and frames, but they don't take no for an answer; it's relentless.

Excellent experience with all of your staff. I felt comfortable every step of the way. I can call or email anytime with questions, comments, additional procedures. I have already referred to several friends. I would do this again and again, and I would certainly go to Dr. Brandy every time.

Chang Eye Group
I too am very surprised by the negative ratings posted here, so much that I have to comment (which I rarely do). I have been a patient of Chang Eye Group for at least 15 years and have experienced nothing but professional, prompt and courteous service. I have recommended them to friends who also are pleased. My entire family of four are regulars, and between us we have experience with everything from ophthalmology to contacts. It seems a lot of the bad reviews have to do with insurance issues, in my experience vision coverage from any provider is notoriously poor. That's not the doctor's fault.

I needed a doctor close to my home. But after seeing this doctor for almost a year. He has disappointed me. I don't understand his English. He works for 4 hours so you can't get a appointment. And he takes trips so he's don't around. I told him about my back pain. And he tells me it's my kidneys. It's my back I had a x ray. And i have been on medications for 10 years. And he won't give me my meds. I need a new doctor. Don't waste your time.
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.
