I really like this doctor...I brought my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law to him when they first moved to Scottsboro, AL , after that I brought my husband to him, now I'm in the process of switching over to him myself. He TALKS to you and LISTENS to you , which my present doctor seems to have forgotten how to do. He put my relatives at ease and was open and inquiring during their exams. My husband likes the fact that Dr. Wayne is doing the tests on him that we think will lead to finding his problem.The ladies that work at the front desk are polite and friendly, the nurses are great!I'd definitely go right on recommending this doctor to anyone searching for one.

Today I had to seek care and found Urgent Care. Dr. Dyer and staff were so helpful. They were all pleasant and efficient. I did not feel like I was waiting a lengthy time. Thank you for helping me when I was sick I felt like I was well cared for

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.
