Timarron Family Medicine
I moved to Southlake in 2005 and had to pick a Primary Care Physician. How lucky was I to pick Timarron Family Medicine?Chris and Lori King and their entire staff are the MOST caring folks I could ever imagine. They CARE about their patients. They TREAT their patients. They FIX their patients' ills.I went in today to have a mole removed and tested because Dr. Chris detected a concern at my yearly physical a couple of months ago. He was constantly concerned about my discomfort while he injected the pain medicine, while he excised the suspect, and even when he patched me back together afterwards. My "discomfort" was near zero due expressly to his care and diligence.My wife sees Dr. Lori and has special needs. Dr. Lori is the best.If you need a family doctor - this is the place to go.
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.
