I am currently in waiting room and passing the three hour mark. Who ever runs this office should be ashamed of the way the patients here are treated. I am sitting next to a diebetic person that had to scramble for some food because she had been here so long. Almost all of the patients are in their 60's or older. Many on oxygen and walkers and they are made to wait so far more than 3 hours. This is ridiculous and borders on abuse.

This dr is great. Would not take my kids anywhere else. Moved away then moved back and went right back to him.

Dr. James R Goss, DO
Stay far far away from this doctor and office!!! Very excessive wait times, rude staff & Dr Goss is extremely rude & only cares about $$, not the patient! This place only cares about money; they treat the patients like crap; wasted my money & 3 hours of my time by going here. Will never return! Stay Away from this office & Dr Goss!!!
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.
