My husband and I both have used MW for our dental needs. One of our first visits was for my husband. After several visits to other dentist, and being told his tooth had to be done surgical, we made one last stop at MW. Dr A was the only one that said, "Yea, I can pull that". It was a moler that was also in his sinus cavity, and others were afraid it would tear as it was being pulled. Dr A was so patient and gentle. She took her time and slowly extracted the moler. It did require one stitch but was done with no other problems. We have praised MW ever since. I started going because of the payment options. They are very flexable and also work on a sliding scale fee for us that are on disability. I continue to go for all my dental needs and so does my husband. We know we will recieve fair and excellent service. Thank you Dr A and MW for the great service wonderful care. BLM

Dr. Jennifer J Bolton, MD
Dr. Bolton is incredible! I am so happy I found her! It takes awhile to get in for a non urgent matter. (I called as a new patient to schedule my annual exam in January and the first available appointment was in April.) but the wait was well worth it! I would recommend booking in advance. I am a high anxiety person especially when it comes to doctor visits but Dr. Bolton and her entire staff made me feel so comfortable and made my experience a breeze! She is so sweet and knowledgable. And I waited less than 3 minutes to see her. I would recommend Dr. Bolton to anyone I care about. Best doctor in town!

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.
