MedExpress Urgent Care
Quickest and best doctor's visit I've EVER had! I went to MedExpress on Tuesday night because I was having trouble with my lungs and I couldn't see my family doctor after work. The staff was VERY friendly and VERY helpful! I was seen almost immediately. As soon as I walked in, the receptionist took my insurance information, and only a minute after that the nurse called me back for weight, blood pressure, etc. Everyone was super nice. About five minutes later, I was already talking to the doctor! She said I had bronchitis, which my family doctor had failed to diagnose the last time I had the same problem. She was knowledgeable and answered all my questions and concerns. EVEN MORE - This morning I got a call from the receptionist to check on me and see how I was doing -- so nice! Honestly, I'd rather go to MedExpress than my regular doctor. I was seen super quickly, my insurance covers the cost, and the staff is competent and friendly.

Joy Wisser and the staff that saw my daughter today were absolutely wonderful. I walked in and their was no wait, we were seen in about 10 minutes and the whole thing was done in 30 or less. My daughter is non verbal, they were so sweet to her, when I discovered her cup had frozen in the car overnight, they gave me a bottle of water for her, and when I mentioned I was waiting for her dad to come and get us, they gave her some motrin while we waited, due to her high fever. Thank you so much for your kindness ladies, I had no idea a visit to the urgent care could go so smoothly, and be so pleasant.

Not the greatest experience I've ever had taking my son to urgent care. The doc was impatient and short with my 5 year old son. She admitted to being short with him and apologized to me repeatedly after I expressed my dissatisfaction with her services. Other than that it was ok - he was treated and given a prescription. I'll go elsewhere in the future.

Every time I go here I have always had GREAT care and the doctors listen very well! Ray is one of the docs there and he is awesome! Every time I take my son there they are always very patient and ready to help. The rest of the staff is very good as well. Have never had a bad experience here!
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.
