I had a wonderful experience today at the Stone Mountain location. I honestly chose to come to this particular office after calling several, because the front office staff was very friendly and accommodating on the phone. Even though I am a new patient, they fit me in within a week. Upon arriving, the nurse was incredibly friendly, and my PA was so kind and caring. I was not kept waiting when I got there, and was seen right away. The staff treated me like a human being that matters, asking me about my life, and being very professional the entire time. I am so happy to have found this practice. Thank you!

I like my doctor and most of the staff is okay. The wait time, even when you have an appointment is horrible and the professionalism of a couple of receptionists is not where it should be. I asked if I could speak with a nurse or the person who was supposed to be scheduling my c section and was asked if I could wait for my appointment as if I don't have a life and children who I need to make arrangements for. I guess this is what you can expect from a person who has no idea what her job should entail. Glad it is almost over because that was appalling to say the least.

You will always wait a max of3-5 hrs and they do not know how to read a medical chart! Don't go here unless you have to!!!
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.
