For starters, the lady at the check-in desk in the E.R. was rude to put it mildly. She also ignored me when I asked her a question because I wasn't standing directly in front of her. Then, after moving to be directly in-front of her, she looked at me like I just asked her to recite the Hippocratic Oath to me. I only asked if I was allowed to change the channel on one of the t.v.s in the E.R. waiting room. The wait time from tri'age to a procedural room was 1 1/2 hours. Once taken back it was another 1 1/2 hours before treatment was administered. And besides the triage nurse occasionally walking by mumbling something there was no other indication of what was going to happen and when. Then, because he was given the wrong information, a nurse comes and demands that we leave. Wow. All in all I am disgusted at the level of treatment and will NEVER come back to this hospital.

Bayway Medical Walk-In
I think Jeff Thompson is polite and professional...not sure why the other reviewer said otherwise. Bad Day? I've been to the Bayway Walk-in 3 times I guess, always got good care. There was a big wait this time, but how can you blame anyone? They need to process each of us with the same questions etc. and its high season for tourists which are plentiful there. So I'd rather they didnt rush me and I wouldn't want them to rush through anyone else really! The waiting room could be bigger, but we can also sit outside which is awesome. I am glad they are nearby and accessible. I wish the receptionist was a more friendly and didnt make you say outloud what your problem is, but the nurse that checks you out is great... I rate this group pretty high. Thanks for being there!

Gilmore Clinic
My review is to thank you for giving us 10 more years we wouldn't have had with our Mom. She was a 30 year plus smoker and swore she'd never quit. She was talked into going to your clinic and she never smoked again. Sadly he waited to long and we lost her 6/9/17 but with out your treatment I don't believe she would have seen her great grandson born. She spoke so highly of you. I'm sure you'll remember her by pic. Ty again

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.
