About 7 yeas ago I was having issues that my OB/GYN of 10 years couldn't resolve. I made the tough decision to try to find another Dr. for a second opinion. I met Dr. Jackson & at first she does come accross as uncaring but 7 yrs later, I can say that it not the case. At my first appt. I was very upset & explained that she was my last hope. She spent hours with me running tests, ultra sounds, etc. We went over my medical history & she presented a simple solution that seemed like it wouldn't work however I am happy to say it did. She does not have a fluffy personality which come accross as cold but if you want a Dr. who does her job well & does care, I would send my best friend to her.

Dr. Billing had been my physician for over thirty years. He and his associates delivered all four of my children. Also four grand children. This is the only OB/GYNECOLOGY office I would recommend. If you are in the Clark county area and need a great Dr. Call this one! !
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.
