Dr. Custodio L Lim, MD
After a mammogram at Terre Haute, IN Regional Hospital, I chose to go to Dr. Lim to have the surgery done. What a wonderful choice I made.Dr. Lim is a very caring and thorough doctor. He explains things very well and helps you to feel hopeful and comfortable through the entire process. He also was sensitive to my mother's and aunt's concerns for me.We all thank God for Doctors such as him.

I have been calling the phone number for almost a year to pay a bill. On the invoice it says 'Billing questions' call 812-232-1123. How can a doctor's phone # be busy for a year?

Internist. Compassionate and competent. Good at continuing care but readily refers you for further followup if he thinks you need to see a specialist.

Can be very helpful in the emergency rooms except within two hours of shift change - then some of them want to let the next shift deal with you.

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.
