Dr. Brian Fay was the absolute best specialist /Dr.I've had for so long Iam 55 yr.young woman who has become disabled w/in the last year and a half. I have pain in every bone & joint in my body,almost. So I've stopped enjoying life as I once knew it. I came to his office from Spirit Lake optimistic & a little apprehensive. With list & ??? in hand,he immediately shook my hand , ever so gently, & spoke clearly & listened intently. He gave me a plan with a plan & I got blood work & ×-rays in record timing. I am encouraged & the Rx he started me on gave me a painfree am & energy to swim 20 laps . Wow I have hope for a quality of life that I have been missing.

There are not many I would trust with my life or that of my loved ones, but Dr. Shah at Shah Medical Clinic of Sioux Falls is one of them. He is highly knowledgeable and skilled in medicine.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Shah as an RN in many emergencies and his calm demeanor are indicative of someone who is 2 steps ahead & truly knows what they are doing. If you are looking for someone who will go the extra mile in providing you quality medical care then setup an appointment today.

Lockwood, Scott A, MD
Dr. Lockwood has been helping me with Low Back pain Management for a couple years now. I won't go to any other Dr. He's the best, knows what he's doing.
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.
