I am so sorry for your experience Ebvib 2. I also was a patient of Dr. Sanburn, and was unhappy to learn she had left the clinic. However, so far I am pleased with the experiences from Dr, Tsewang. She seems caring, interested, and competent. I can't comment regarding chronic pain though, since that was not my issue. I've been to the walk-in side of the De Vargas clinic one time, and was not impressed. The doctor there barely took 5 minutes with me. I knew I needed antibiotics, and wish the US would let us purchase some antibiotics without an Rx. It was over $100 for a few minutes of an uninterested PA, and, no, it wasn't busy.

Sleep problems, it turns out, can have a myriad of causes, so doctors that have a single specialty might tend to block out alternative explanations. Dr. Baten has enough experience not to do that, plus a multi-disciplinary team at the Sleep Center. He's good with kids, too!

Very professional from the front desk to the technicians and the very great care from the physicians. The clinic is spotless which seems to be a rare commodity in Santa Fe.
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.
