Redd, Burton M.D.
Dr Redd was the finest and kindest compassionate doc I've ever had the pleasure of having care for my then 10 yr Old son with cerebral palsy .. from what I understand Dr read works all up and down the state of California because he did surgery on my son from Porterville in Downey California at a children's hospital and I just happened to be a brand new nurse at the time and he was gracious enough to see that my mother and I were exhausted allowed me to bring my son home after the first night ...I was exhausted !!! He knew that too so because of that ? And the two or so hour drive ?? He ,out of his own pocket. had his private pilot fly my son and I in the comfort of his private jet to Porterville so we could come home sooner... I thought it was the most compassionate thing that I've ever seen and I was a RN for thirty plus years in every aspect of nursing and never ran into a doctor anything like or even similar in anyway like Dr. Redd ... He's an amazing doctor hands down ... I would trust no other to my children OR EVEN GRANDCHILDREN and anyone who knows me?? Knows how SERIOUSLY protective I am over my grandchildren lol FIVE STARS DR REDD !! I would give you more if it were possible

This place is AMAZING!!! I will NEVER GO TO EMERGENCY AGAIN!!! I broke two ribs and walked right in to an exam room without even sitting down in the waiting room! The nurses and doctor were the kindest and most sympathetic I have ever seen in my entire life!!! The X-rays had to be taken at the other urgent care because they do not yet have an X-ray machine yet. That was the only downfall, but I will still go there in the future even with a broken bone and happily get the X-ray elsewhere! I truly cannot express my gratitude to them enough for their caring and concern! They even called me the next day to check up on how I was doing AND they sent me a get well card about a week after that!!! This place is UNBELIEVABLE!!! Oh, and I forgot to mention this was all taken care of by my health insurance (Blue Cross) with my only paying my office copay of $40!!! Had I gone to The ER, it would have cost me a $500 emergency room copay (which is standard for emergency room visits)!!!!

Dr Voong is an a**hole. He doesn't give a sh*t about his patients. I sat in his office crying because of how bad my back was hurting. He came in the room told me to continue taking the medication I'm allergic to (seriously he did) and come back in February. When I asked him for a different kind of pain medicine....tramadol is what he gave me last time. Anyways when I asked him to please give me anything besides tramadol he said, "nope nope nope" and started walking for the door. When I asked him if he was going to come help me take care of my 8 month old and 2 year old then he said, "I'M NOT DOING THIS WITH YOU" then walked out and slammed the door. If you have options choose anyone other than him. He has a God complex and thinks he's better than all of his patients. I truly hate this dr. It was so bad today I filed a medical grievance with the medical board today. I'm not the kind of person to do something like that. But it was seriously horrible fu*k this guy, man

I have been to this medical office twice. Once to be signed off for a Workers Comp Claim. Was in and out in a few minutes. Everyone was friendly, it was clean, and I was impressed. The second time I took my adult son with a bad knee injury. He had just injured it. I called ahead and asked how busy they were, and ask about x-ray facilities. When I got there and asked for assistance to get my son out of the car, I was immediately assisted with sending someone out to the car to him to check him out, and was given instructions to go to the Court Street clinic for x-rays. They were expecting us and there was no wait. In and out in 25 minutes. We returned to Sequoia Prompt Care and my son was assisted inside the Clinic with a wheelchair. My son received excellent care promptly. The entire staff was friendly, caring, and very professional. I've recommended this Clinic to family and coworkers.

Stillwater, Lyle B MD FACS
After seeing this doctor several times, I realized, although he may not seem to have a great bedside manner at times, it is because he is paying very close attention to what I am saying, taking it all in. He doesn't miss anything. Ultimately, he is an excellent doctor because of it. He is not dismissive at all the way some doctors are the way they pat you on the back seeming to have a great bedside manner, but not really listening to you at all. I'd rather have Dr. Stillwater, who pays attention and knows what he's doing, than all the other so-so doctors with all their smiles and so-so knowledge put together.

Very through. I have been to at least 10 Neuro by the time I got here I was told I one neuro disorder that I had been taking major drugs for 18 years. He sent me to UCLA and did numerous test and I don't have that disorder. He found other things wrong. One was very simple, but mimics major neuro issues, I don't process B12. When it gets too low I can't walk, etc. The office rules are simple call and confirm that you got there reminder call. get there 15 min early. Well worth it for the EXCELLENT MD

BEST MD IN TOWN SAVED MY LIFE!!! when I was fired by my regular MD she took care of me until I could find a GP. She did a number of surgeries on me to correct damage from a hyserectomy. She has great attitude, great sense of humor. I needed that with being in the hospital can be pretty depressing and she is ray of sunshine on a gloomy day. Compassionate and talanted I can barely see the scars from my multiple surgeries. She is worth seeing.

Receptionist gave me wrong information and I ended up wasting an hour and a half of my time. Doctor was prescribing medication before it was confirmed what was wrong with me. If I didn't have a good head on my shoulders,I would have wasted more time and money. Staff was friendly, they gave me a refund, but the overall professionalism disappoints.

I registered my appointment online and was called withing 5 minutes and told when to come to the office. Once there, I was taken to the room and greeted by a nurse and then the doctor followed shortly. I was in and out in 30 minutes. This is a very nice facility and the staff was excellent and so kind. I would recommend highly!!

Dr Al in my experience with neurologist is the best. Staff very friendly, and caring. He takes time with you to answer any ? or concerns that you have. He actually cares unlike so many others. I would recommend his office to anyone. Eric Broyles
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.
