Henson, Michele
I called dr. Henson when my daughter was almost 3 months, she was having a terrible skin infection and I thought she could have helped us, well at least I found by myself the type of specialist that could have saved her, because her pediatric doctor, Paul Nave at PA associates was so useless that he did nothing, very incompetent. Dr. Henson is a nice person, but we believe that as an immunologist she had to know that Georgia State did not include the SCID disease in the newborn screen test, SCID is the worse and very rare immunology disease. Dr Henson suggested that my daughter had a genetic problem completely different from what she had, well as an immunologist she must have tested my daughter for the basic of immunology, checking her immune system cells, basic thing for her area of expertise, unfortunately that was not done in time. Just after my angel was already infected and almost dying, she realized that she could have a FATAL SCID disease, unfortunately she is now dead, my angel left us.

Moving up from Tampa was difficult with my health issues and finding a great Doctor like I had in Tampa. I finally found one after 2 attempts in the Savannah area. Dr. Hightower is very professional and spent time getting to know my concerns. Highly recommended if you are looking for a Primary Doctor!

Dr Cohen is a great doctor and really listens to his patients concerns. I've had medical issues for years that were never explored by other physicians. Dr Cohen has found out the reason for each and every one of them. I refer ppl to him all the 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.
