Shaikh, Asad Kamran
Very caring and attentive. Made sure I was pain free and came in to see me a few times throughout my stay in the hospital.

YOGA is her mission. Not medical care. Doesn't seem to matter what the issue is, her answer is yoga. Makes one wonder if she is truly licensed to practice medicine at all. She calls herself "Dr. Joules" and doesn't really listen. She's too busy trying to heal you "spiritually" rather than "physically"

I tried my whole life to lose weight, but HCG is the best. I lost 18 pounds in 1month and felt great. Getting weighed in once a week keeps you on track. I look great thanks to Dr Norton.

WHo ever heard of testing in saliva. I teach biology and when Dr Norton explained the rationale it makes perfect sense. I am much more comfortable with hormones knowing that this is the state of the art.

She greeted me in the waiting room and I felt comfortable right away. She is actually friendly. When it came to the medicine part I was blown away. She told me so much from the labs I brought I thought she was psychic until she explained that the information was there, but no one else had the time to explain it. I feel a lot more in charge of my own health. Looking forward to my next visit.

She told me the patient is in charge 99 percent of the time and that she will try to fill in the rest. What a relief not to have a doctor be an egomaniac. She actually explained options and told me to pick what seemed best for me. Talk about empowerment. She should give lessons to the know-it-all docs.

I am a teacher but I never had a doctor give me homework before, what a great idea. She actually lent me a book on the issue. With her help, I am feeling about 110 percent better, and understanding what the problem is and how to manage it. I have recommended her many times over.

The result is we are very pleased both with the quality and speed of the work as well as with how the house looks from the street now with its new tile trim. As soon as I save up my pennies, I plan to get the rest of the edging completed.

Mammadova, Aytan
Dr. Mammadova is a resident at RUMC and is very cold. She has little compassion for her patients and has poor communication with patient.

Dr Lisa Hernandez is the nastiest doctor I have ever spoken with! She is actually mean and seems to enjoy being mean! I have been misdiagnosed numerous times by dr. Hernandez! She did not detect when I had pneumonia in both lungs sent me home with fever and barely able to breathe I wound up going to the hospital by ambulance a few hours later from home! I went there with my eyes swollen like I was a boxer she barely looked said it was pink eye and gave me prescription for a med that when I went to the eye specialist because it was still terrible he said that the med she gave me wouldn't do a thing to help and gave me a different diagnosis! No matter what you go to her for you come out with the same antibiotic and God forbid her or her office would ever call to see how you were doing! She should lose her license as she is a real Bitchhhhhhhh!!
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.
