I totally disagree with both reviews here. I have been a patient at a few different pain clinics and this one is by far the most attentive and on top of things. The first visit is long and very thorough and you see a team of staff to asses your situation. This is not a place to go if you are just seeking pain meds. They will try procedures etc and will prescribe to you if they feel it is necessary. I am currently being prescribed meds by them and I get procedures as well. I don't agree with the bad reviews at all!

I went there for about 4 years and the staff was always caring and my Doctor Eric Domingueze was a wonderful doctor, always took the time to talk to me and make sure my treatment was working for me. I only left because I was moving to California, I was upset about having to leave such a great doctor and medical center.
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.
