Wherry Jeffrey MD
I was Dr. Wherry's patient for several years and only stopped seeing him because I moved out of state. I always knew he was a great doctor but I am even more aware of it now that I am trying to find a doctor in my new area of residence. As has been said in other reviews, Dr. Wherry answers all questions fully and explains everything in detail. He is always open and explains why he is asking any questions. He addressed every concern I brought up in every visit. I never felt that he was being secretive or closed off. Our interactions were always positive and I never felt he was judging me. I give him an A+. Wish me luck. I can't try out too many doctors or I will get known as a "difficult" patient--LOL! Dr. Wherry is not easy to replace!

Doctor Horner has a practical approach that is 'just right' not too crazy(bionic hand anyone)nor too laid back(yap you have arthritis, it's part of getting old)I think he is very expert, but still talks to me like i am a person, and can understand even better, he makes things simple enough that I do undestand.

Dr Nasiri is wonderful! I have gone to her for years for everything from my migraines, flu, back pain etc. She is extremely detailed and sympathetic - providing not only medical assistance but referrals for additional classes and instruction to assist with these issues. Would highly recommend!

Had a good first visit with Dr. Fontaine. A couple of weeks later had an epidural, all went well. It took about a week but my pain level has been lowered with the shot. I hope it lasts!

I can't say anything about the other review other than it seems totally at odds with the Jackie I know. The woman literally saved my life. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
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.
