Great doctor, great nurses, and polite staff! :-) Only problem I've had is twice now my account has been incorrect. I pay with my debit card. We do not have insurance. The first time they said I owed them money, until I brought proof from my credit union showing they took their money. This time they are saying my card was rejected. I have the money to cover this charge. My credit union has gone over my account, and shows no attempted transaction from them. Maybe they just need computer upgrades? The printer wasn't working, while I was there.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Shah-Rhodes for about a decade. She is our primary care physician. It is because of her that we are a healthy and happy family today. Whether it was a simple sniffle or a major issue Dr. Shah-Rhodes has always been there for us. Whether we are fine and only need our annual physical or one of us has had major health issues Dr. Shah-Rhodes has been there for us. Her skill and compassion is second to none. Thank you Dr. Shah!

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.
