If they have So Many patients it could be they are good at something? Do they schedule you very soon when you call with routine issues? Many questions to ask your self about their. Medical Practice. I always take a LIST and any M.D. or Nurse Practitioner will remember me with my gentle but UPFRONT and appropriate insistence that I need RESPONSES about.Do not let their Professional attributes intimidate You & waste your $$$ & time.

This place is packed and doctors rush you in 5 minutes, I guess trying to make more money and the patients have to put up with this. Besides dr. Ballard's nurse Carolyn is the rudest and coldest person to talk to. I complained to the manager, he said he'll call back, but they don't give a crap about patients, it's only about money, patients come and go like cattle. Ladies up front are nice though. I highly do not recommend this place to anybody, once upon a time used to be good, Not anymore. Poor management, awful treatment, and they can care less.
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.
