I went to crossroads to get a pregnancy confirmation. Afterwards I asked the doctor a question about my iron (I'm severely anemic) she left the room, brought back a laptop, and Googled my question right in front of me! And she wasn't even understanding my question. No matter how many times I tried to explain I wanted to know if the pregnancy would cause me to need more iron she just kept telling me "it says it's okay to take iron while pregnant". And their nurse gave horrible directions and severely bruised my hand with the way she drew my blood. Wouldn't suggest this place to my worst enemy!

We visited Crossroads Urgent Care Clinic in Portland Tn. today. The staff was friendly & professional. We loved Dr. Veronica Crawley. She made us feel very comfortable & answered all questions we had. We would highly recommend this clinic location.
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.
