Dr. Gavin I Awerbuch Md Pllc, MD
He is one amazing human being and a phenomenal doctor! I have been a patient to Dr Gavin for 14 years.I do not use pharmaceutical drugs for pain or issues stemming from a car accident. Dr Gavin had never pushed me to either! I have been able to communicate openly my disdain for drugs and my desire to seek natural alternative options. He has been tremendously helpful in this way... as well as the first doctor that has treated me with respect and not demoralized me for it! Furthermore...He has worked diligently to find the cause of my problems and offer all possible solutions for managing the pain I live with. I have several friends that are patients of his and their opinions parallel mine as well. If you do not like him then I think you might have problems he cannot address.

If your primary doctor refers you to CMU Health on Washington Ave. in Saginaw you would do well to ask for some place else. The surgeons are qualified and board certified, but they seem to do only the minimum when it comes to the actual surgery, leaving open the possibility of missing the complete picture. The office staff at this location will suddenly cancel your appointment at the last minute by saying the doctor was called upon to do "emergency surgery" and then not bother to call you to re-schedule for days. A rather lackadaisical attitude to be kind about their attitude. Given the many surgeons in the area, you would do much better for your peace of mind and perhaps your health to go elsewhere for a surgeon.

I seriously disagree with the previous review. I have had nothing but first rate care from this doctor. She takes the time to listen to me, goes back through my chart to make sure we've followed up on previous visit results, sets me up with necessary specialists & outside appointments, and acts like she cares. I have recommended her to friends and family and do so without hesitation.

Went to this office with my husband following a work injury. I am a healthcare worker and accompanied him to help him better understand his options. I was told by the staff that I was not allowed into the room during the consult. I presume that they don't understand HIPAA because he had given consent to have me there.

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.
