What a great alternative to the ER. I saw a real ER doctor who was so competent and saved me from a 5 hour wait in a gross and nasty Emergency Room. All in I waited about 10 minutes before I was examined and not long after I was discharged with my prescription and some notes on how to better control my asthma. The place is beautiful, just like how I would decorate my house, had hi tech flat screens in the exam rooms and was sparkling clean including an Xray machine that sends digital pictures to radiologists off site to get official readings. I am really impressed. Highly recomended.

I went in not feeling well at all. One of the worst sicknesses Ive had in years. I can't believe the top notch treatment I received here. It turns out I had pneumonia which they were able to diagnose on the scene with an X-Ray and a blood test. I even got IV fluids. Thanks to the ER Doctor and the the amazing Nurse Practitioner on that gray wintery saturday when I would have normally had to go to an ER and wait amongst the mayhem. I was home by 6 and resting in my own bed...
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.
