Med Stop Urgent Care
I finally decided to go to Medstop after having a fever for 3 days. My wait time was approx. 1 hr. and 45 min. It was worth the wait and after I was seen, I realized I could make an appt. for my next visit. I was seen by Dr. Brian Roberts. He was wonderful and I never felt rushed. He took his time, asking me questions listening to me, and explaining my options in detail. Because I have a new granddaughter, he suggested a test to confirm my virus. That will allow my daughter to let her doctor know and she can be treated accordingly. Dr. Roberts wasn't just compassionate but he also has a great sense of humor! It's wonderful to laugh when you aren't feeling well. He also addressed a minor problem I've been having with my ring finger. It's called, Mallet Finger and usually happens when you're playing baseball. He made some suggestions and hopefully my finger will heal without surgery. He gave me a finger splint, bandages and masks, so as not to breathe on my granddaughter or anyone else for that matter. Also, a prescription for an inhaler, to help make me comfortable. He confirmed, you can't take antibiotics when you have a virus, only if you have a bacterial infection. Thanks to Dr. Roberts and staff, you are awesome and I'm feeling much better!

The Bauman Clinic
I have been seeing Dr. Bauman for almost 20 years. No doctor has ever been more loving, accepting, understanding, warm, thoughtful... She has gone "to bat" for me too many times to count over the years with every agency from Social Security to various jobs, hospitals, other doctors, etc. She is an incredible doctor.

They told me that I had a Influenza-like illness and sent me home with no meds. Turns out I have influenza A and pneumonia. People are nice, but for the price I paid, I'd rather have had a better diagnosis.

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.
