Center For Pain Management
I have suffered from migraine headaches since I was 18 years old. I have been to several different doctors and treatment providers seeking a solution that would finally lend me some type of relief. I have taken all kinds of medication, tried a chiropractor, acupuncture, etc. and nothing seemed to work. One of my co-workers recommended I try to get an appointment with Dr. Padda because he has a special technique that he does specifically for migraine headaches. Much to my surprise, I was able to get an appointment the very next day. The office was packed when I arrived but the staff were friendly and efficient. I had to wait about 15 minutes and they got me right in. Dr. Padda asked me tons of questions regarding the frequency of my headaches, severity, health history, etc. He recommended that we try an SPG - (Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block). Of course, I had no idea what that was so he explained it and it sounded EXTREMELY scary and intimidating. However, given all the pain and discomfort I have went through, i decided to try it. I came back a few days later for the procedure. it was quick and painless and for the best news - it totally worked! I still see Dr. Padda on a regular basis for follow up's and sometimes get Botox, which also helps my headaches immensely. He is a life saver for me. Highly recommend Dr. Padda - If he was able to help my headaches, I am sure he can help treat any type of pain.

I know how terrible back pain can be. After a fall down the stairs, I had unimaginable pain for five years. I had been to various doctors and done physical therapy throughout that time period. Stretches worked when I was sore, but sometimes the pain was so intense that I could hardly get out of bed. I have even had to take days or weeks off of work due to the pain. I finally found a doctor who really listened to my symptoms and understood my problem. Other doctors had mentioned surgery, but my doctor didn't think that I would improve with surgery. Instead he offered me a less invasive treatment, cortisone injections in some joints of my spine called facet joints. His work was seriously life changing! I haven't felt so normal since before my back issues began. I have been pain free for more than a year and I couldn't be more grateful.

Medical West
Saw Susie this morning for a new cpap machine. I have been on a cpap for 6 years but this is the first time I have used Medical West. Previously I had to use another company under a different insurance company. Prior to meeting with Susie, communications were with Kylie and Carrie. After this morning I am looking forward to working with Medical West for my cpap needs. Never will I go back to Apria. Medical West is customer focused in my opinion and top notch.

Fast Track Urgent Care
Best Urgent Care I have EVER been to! The staff was nice and friendly, and Dr. Buschmiller was excellent! He listened to my problems and found a solution quickly. I'm a breastfeeding mom and he was totally comfortable & he allowed me to stay and finish my feeding after he was done. EXCELLENT care! Extremely fast!

Allstate Insurance Agent: Yolanda Lockhart-Gibbs
While Allstate Insurance is one of the best insurance companies around, Anna and her husband are a tad bit hard to understand. However, don't let that stop you if you are looking for someone in your neighborhood. They have hired some pretty good and efficient people to staff their office. Give them a call

Greg Metzger - State Farm Insurance Agent
Returning to St. Louis after 2 years overseas. Was very happy with Greg and his staff so did not consider calling anyone else to insure our soon to be new home. Kate made the process very simple even though we had the challenge of distance and different time zones. Can't beat State Farm or Greg's Agency.
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.
