David Samini DR
Dr Samini's office and out patient surgery center was staffed by caring and qualified people. My surgery for detached eye lid went perfectly. Dr. Samini is a caring and skilled surgeon who is qualified beyond his years. The follow up appointments were scheduled and followed up on by the office staff and conducted in a professional but caring manner. They were interested in me and my tolerance to the surgery never telling me how I should be. If I were to need this or any comedic eye surgery, his office will be my destination.

Dr. Towfigh is the best! First of all I was able to request an appointment right off of their website, and got a call back the next day! She spent a lot of time with me explaining why I have the problems I'm having with my feet, and gave me a list of things I can do differently to help alleviate my problems without treatment or medication! Plus she put me in a whirlpool and smoothed down my corns and calluses... my feet feel like baby's feet!

It is possible to have pain-free feet!! Feels like a spa when you come to see Dr. Towfigh! They have a whirlpool in every room - like a foot jaccuzi - which feels amazing! She spends a lot of time with you one-on-one and really listens and explains what is causing the pain! A few adjustments to my routine, and my feel have never felt better! She also sanded down all my calluses and my feet are super soft! Super spa treatment to boot!

Dr. Samimi treats each patient with respect and courtesy. His expertise is amazing. I was referred to him for removal of a basal cell carcinoma adjacent to my eye. The surgery was extensive.He called me that night to see how I was doing and if I needed anything for pain. I am pleased with the results and recommend him both for his skill surgically and his consideration of his patients' comfort. He is a wonderful doctor!

Best Doctor I've ever had in 50 plus years! Internal medicine, he knows so much about natural, homeopathic medicine as well as Western medicine, and combines the best practices to address your needs. His manner is always professional, knowledgeable, and he's one of the kindest and empathetic doctors you'll ever meet!

Dr. Richard Guttler is nothing less than exceptional. It was a misdiagnosis in Scottsdale, Arizona that lead me to drive 8 hours to be seen by someone who is passionate about what they do. It was refreshing to find an endocrinologist that is dedicated to excellence

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.
