Doctor Holden is a great man... He will go out of his way to help you. Also they take time to listen to your problems. The staff there is great! They REALLY DO care about you & all of your problems. If he prescribes medication to you he will explain it to you and work with you to find a balance just for you along with budget friendly solutions. He will also work with you to determine the best medication needed for your individual needs. Can't say enough about this great, upstanding, "Godfather of Psychiatry" He books up quickly but, is MORE than worth the wait for him and his staff. You will not be disappointed!A+++++++

Dr Michael Clouatre is simply the best. Before he does the exam and addresses your problem, he sits down and talks to you about whats going on in your life. He's so easy to talk to and feels like your best friend. I've seen him for many years and I treasure his advice. GE is a great Doctor in his OB/GYN office. He is so caring and takes great concern to make your office visit the best ever.

Dr. Bearden is amazing. He sits, listens and shows he cares! He doesn't rush in and out. Treats you with care and compassion rather than a number on a chart!

Took time to explain what meds I was on And explained what the side effects could be.
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.
