We live in Belfair, Wa and my son has been battling an opiate problem for a few years now. We found Dr. Coe and the office Manager Dan in downtown Tacoma. They helped him detox to get off opiates with Suboxone and now we are on Vivitrol for the longer term. He has been clean for almost 2 months. The vivitrol once a month shots has worked wonders keeping him off the opiates. My wife and I finally get to sleep at night. They have been wonderful to work with and are very knowledgeable and understanding. I highly recommend South Sound Medical Clinic

Good clinic and good staff. I went there when I could not get into my normal PC doctor. I was able to make an appointment without much hassle.

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.
