Dr. Brian J Korte, MD
My info: I am a female in my late 30's. I have been seeing Dr. Korte for at least 10 years if not longer. He listens and responds appropriately: I had been to MANY doctors for all sorts of medical concerns that run the gamut, but not one of them was willing to sit down and TALK to me. Dr. Korte will explain things in great detail and allows me to ask questions of him; I NEVER get a feeling like I am being rushed. Dr. Korte is the ONLY doctor that correctly diagnosed my Metabolic Syndrome/Syndrome X and Stein Leventhal Syndrome - one of which my gynecologist should have diagnosed as it is a female issue and affected my fertility! I had been to several doctors over the years that just said, "You need to lose weight" and generally treated me like I was making my symptoms up. I have never had a problem with him changing prescriptions if I needed. More times than not, he is the one suggesting a change or alternative if a treatment is not working to my satisfaction (sleep medicine dose, etc.) Dr. Korte has several times recommended books, has given me print outs on my particular issues, or has actually shown me exercises that can alleviate issues. He goes above and beyond the norm, and believe me I have been to MANY doctors! Professionalism/Bedside Manner: Dr. Korte is always professional. He is a straight-forward person and will provide you with plenty of facts. Dr. Korte is always willing to listen and always willing to explain things in great detail! He really does have a wealth of knowledge about just about everything under the sun, and he likes to share it and share about the research he is doing. I really like that this is a doctor that not only is doing his day to day duties, but in his spare time is actually researching and studying and enjoying still learning about his field. He knows his stuff and is active in keeping up to date on the latest and greatest and researching to see if it is beneficial for his patients. It is rare to find a doctor who wants to take the time to educate his patients. Office Staff: The nurses are always super friendly. The front desk staff can be "cold" at times. The wait time is never extremely long, but is typical of doctor offices. Sometimes I am seen almost immediately, sometimes I have to wait. I don't think in all my time going there that I have ever had to wait more than 30 minutes in the front. Of course sometimes I have to wait a little bit in the back for the doctor, but it never seems real long. I'd rather wait and get a doctor that will sit and talk to me at my appointment than to wait forever and then get a doctor that rushes me. ;) Making appointments has never been a problem. The waiting area up front is clean and inviting... none of the fluorescent lighting or cold feel you get from other doctor offices. The seats are comfortable and the decorations are always nice. There is a TV in the waiting area and it looks more like a living room than a doctor office. I like that feeling. Now, once you get into the back area for the actual appointment, it looks and feels like a doctor office - which I like. It always seems moderately clean, and the staff seems to be mindful of keeping things sterile and clean. Additional: Dr Korte has been instrumental in helping me with many health issues: weight loss program, physicals for foster care requirements, infertility, sleep issues, etc... He is very knowledgeable about many areas and will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist if needed.

Dr. Watkins delivered my granddaughter 6 years ago. I was present for the labor and delivery and she did an excellent job. In fact, my daughter's best friend who was also present, switched to her after meeting her in that setting. Excellent doctor - attentive and calming.The first review from 2012 on HER should be removed as the reviewer refers to HER as a HE. Either a false report or they wrote this on the wrong doctor.

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.
