Professional in every way! Listens to issues and gives answers to calm the nerves of the 'what if'. Explains things so at all times I knew what to expect and things went like clock work. So happy I used Dr.VanNorman for something as precious as my eyesight.

Dr. Van Norman is awesome. I was a little apprehensive about LASIK. Dr. Van Norman made the procedure completely easy and uncomplicated. I am now seeing 20/10 in both eyes. There were absolutely no complications. My eyes were not scratchy or dry. He made sure to get the precise measurements he needed before the procedure. The follow up was great as well. I simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Van Norman and his very polite, courteous staff. (He also did a fantastic job removing my mom's cataracts!) .

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.
