All in all not a horrible practice considering the volume of patients they see everyday. I've been a patient of this practice since childhood, and although I, at times was unhappy with, or even disagreed with a diagnosis; I remembered that all doctors only have subjectivity in these matters of mental health. That being said I still feel that I receive excellent care tailored to my wants and needs, no one has ever tried to convert my way of thinking about my mental health and that ranks high on my list. I've seen others complain about billing problems-- which I've never had the 10+ years I've been there, and they have been flexible with late fees etc. at least in my case. Because of the high patient volume you will wind up waiting for an appointment at least ten minutes past the given time, but those of us who are patient patients remain patient. I'd definitely recommend their fairfield office because the trumbull office staff is just a bunch of 20 something drama queens. I've been at pizza restaurants with 17 year olds more pleasant than the trumbull staff....

Dr Weiner has been a real ally in helping me with my struggles. He is patient, thoughtful, and explains clearly the logic behind his suggestions and coaching. I have made a lot of progress in the year he has treated me.
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.
