This is the best primary care doctor I have ever been to in my life. I had not felt well for years before becoming his patient in May 2014. He took an extended amount of time to talk with me and to explore my medical history rather than running me through quickly and impatiently as has been my experience with other doctors. He did a comprehensive panel of blood work and testing in search of the the reasons for my lethargy, lack of energy and general poor health at age 46. Consequently, we discovered several issues that could be easily treated with the correct, specific medications. It made me very frustrated and rather angry that I had suffered for YEARS with these conditions before someone took the time to do the proper test rather than just writing a "catch all" prescription to treat the symptoms. I am grateful to report that at 47 I fell better than I felt at 37! All of this progress is the result of his thorough and thoughtful diagnosis and TESTING and then proper treatment and follow up. Most medical professionals with whom I am have interacted seem hesitant to order tests and treat issues aggressively because they are slaves to the insurance companies. Dr. B does what he feels is best for his patients and lets the chips fall where they may. I am thankful for his tenacity and his willingness to work for the good of his patients instead of always looking out for the bottom dollar as his first priority. He continues to take time to personally talk with me at each visit, to LISTEN to what I have to say, addresses both current and chronic issues and makes me feel as if my health truly matters to him. I highly recommend him (I drive an hour and a half to see him.) if you are looking for a doctor that truly cares and will work for you and your health.

Forbidden Caverns
If you want to see a cave and are in the Pigeon Forge area, I say go. Otherwise, its probably not worth the trip. It is $13 for adults for around an hour tour, the 'light show' is sort of a joke in that lights are needed because it is underground. As for the stereophonic sound, there is an audio tape with a man telling a story (nothing life altering). However, all in all it is a pretty neat cave with a little history of boot leggers and the smoke stains to prove it. It was pretty easy to get to and the drive was in my opinion worth it on its own. There is an old fashion water mill and a "you catch'em we cook'em" fish place (sort of divey, local house gone restaurant) along the way. Oh, there are few bats in this cave, but they are teeny-tiny, and didnt move an inch when we were there.

Mountain Memory Tours
Lynn & Tim were our tour guide and bus driver. They were both so warm and friendly that it felt like you were being taken by old friends to their favorite sites. Eleven of us met at 9am for the combo tour. My husband and I thought it was so informative and we learned and saw more than we ever would have on our own. We love the history of the Smoky Mt National Park and the pictures we were able to take. Not only did she tell us about Dolly's growing up and all the good she does, but she shared her own stories of growing up in the area. Lynn and Tim thank you so much.

Cruisers Drive In
You really need to check this place out! GREAT food and a BIG selection to choose from, not what you would expect to find at a typical Drive-In!!! The servings are HUGE and the prices are great. If you go try the burger or the loaded Italian beef, their pizza is awesome too! You can tell I live close by!!! lol

I have been seeing Dr. Razzak for more than 5 years. He listens, he explains, and his entire staff create an atmosphere of "be-of-service". I have never waited more than 10 minutes to see him when I had an appointment. My only complaint is that I did not start going to him sooner.

Both my wife and I have been patients of Dr. Razzak for several years. He is conservative in his treatment and has the patients' best interest in mind. He and his staff are very courteous and efficient and usually keep their office schedule of appointments on time.

I highly recommend Dr. Razzak, I'm cautious about doctors these days. But after seeing him for over a year, I trust his care. He is very knowledgeable and up to date on things. He takes time with you and doesn't rush you out the door for next patient.
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.
