Gu, Yaoming, MD
I had been referred to pain management years ago but could not find many accepting new patients. The one I did find and go to horrified me when I saw the patients in the lobby, the filth and disorganization of the staff. Even being in severe pain I refused treatment and walked out. Fast forward through years of suffering to Dr Gu opening an office near me. They contacted my primary Dr. Asking if he had patients in need of their services. My doctor knowing what i had been through with other clinics said yes and referred me. Thank goodness the stars aligned to bring us together. I was able to get an appointment quickly and was very pleased from day one. The facility and staff are very professional and well organized. The lobby is not filled with drug addicts there for pain pills. It is the opposite of the usual pain management clinic. They offer many options and have methods of treatment far beyond stringing you out and keeping you coming back for pain pills. They have truly given me hope that I can live life again. This is a legit medical facility which I highly recommend.

She is the best. A real artist! In 2013, when I went to see her, I was pear shaped; my breasts did not even fill a cup size of AAA. I then had thermage done. My skin looked younger and more contoured. I looked better than I had ever looked in my life. 11 years later my breasts look and feel natural! If I had the finances I would see her in a heart beat! Thank you, Thank you Dr. Blanchet for helping me develop into a confident and out going person!

Dr.Barsanti was very straight forward and was great. I have been in pain for 6 years and when he found out how long I had been in pain was very sympathetic to my situation. He recommended an ESI and it was done the following week, he wanted to do it that day for me but I didn't have a ride. It has been 2 weeks since the ESI and I feel soo much better and its because of him.

Dr Kapoor is very thorough and efficient. I feel like I am always listened to and taken care of in the best possible way. Very caring and attentive. I can get in to see him within a few days or even the same day in case of any emergency issue. Great 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.
