My family has been apart of this practice since it opened and have never had anything but good experiences here. We have a daughter who has a very extensive medical history and sometimes things can get really complicated with her. Not once has the staff here ever been rude or unwilling to help. Dr. Paul came in a few years ago and we absolutely loved him as soon as we met him!! The nurses and front desk have always showed compassion, understanding and patience. The office manager Mrs. Williams is absolutely amazing!!! Not once have I ever walked in, no matter how crazy things might be, and seen her or anyone else with a frown on there face or an unwelcoming tone. Every person here has always went above and beyond to make my family feel welcome. This practice is a rare find and holds some of the most caring, loving, and passionate healthcare workers we have ever met.

We LOVE Dr. Paul...he is everything I have been searching for within a pediatrician for my son. He takes time to listen to your concerns. Every visit we have had Dr. Paul has spent at least twenty minutes in the room with us. He actually remembers my son, and my son even gets excited to go see him. The only reason I'm given the office a low rating is because off the office staff. The front desk help is HORRIBLE!!!!! They get attitude almost every time on the phone. I cannot stand dealing with them
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.
