This place was a complete rip off and we were over charged. My husband went in for a simple examination and was charged $692. He only saw the Physician Assistant for 5 minutes. He was giving unnecessary test which he told them he did not need. The doctor will not call us back with a reasonable explanation or to review the billing. I am very disappointed and frustrated with this walk in clinic.

First of all, Dr. Schakel is a terrible doctor. I went to him because my lawyer said he is the most well-known doctor in Sonoma County. But he made a mess of my foot by hitting a nerve during a surgery. I had to sign on the contract before the surgery, so I can't even sue him. Every time I saw him, I was very depressed because he is not caring at all, and he kept saying the surgery was the only my option. He advised that because he can make more money operating surgery. For the surgery I needed to get there by 7a.m., but he was over an hour late, and he didn't even apologize. Then, before the surgery ended, the anesthetic ran out so I was grunting in pain, but he did nothing for me. It hurt so much. After the surgery I have even more pain in the foot. Now I am permanently disabled. But I was fed up seeing him. So I changed to a different doctor who is a lot more caring. However, when my new doctor asked Dr. Schakel's office to transfer my information twice, they didn't do it. I really regret choosing Dr. Schakel. DONT' GO TO DR. SCHAKEL!!! IT'S A NIGHTMARE!!!

The accommodations were excellent and the personal attention from the tech assigned to me was also excellent. And, while not the easiest and most pleasant of experiences, I did manage to sleep and they got the required data, so, a successful outcome achieved.

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.
