My doctor is great if I can ever get an appointment to see him. I have a chronic illness and have never been able to schedule a same day appointment with my doctor or even an on call physician. Therefore, I have made many urgent care appointments. Also, the phone hours make it tough to even make an appointment, if you are employed. Office is closed for lunch between 12 and 2 in the afternoon. Phones aren't open until 8:15 and some later. Often I can't get an appointment with my doctor, so I go to urgent care. Urgent care doesn't have access to my medical records with Primary Care Associates, so if I need any kind of test done besides the very basic, I am referred to the ER. Not my idea of efficient medical care!

Avoid this terrible doctor, she seems racist and instead of helping she only made things worse.

You will get the best of treatment by your doctor, but you will also get obstruction wherever possible by the Primary Care Vista office personnel.

Horrible company! You're not getting an appointment if you're not Mexican! Brown privilege! Watch out! Fat Latin maid working the front desk! Charges $160! For a basic appointment! Which should be no more than fifty bucks! Be aware!

My doctor (Dr. Ochi) is great and I always get great service and attention. The only set back there is that sometimes there is a break down in communication between the doctor and the office staff, especially when I request documentation. Otherwise, I appreciate the services from the VCC.

Dr. Gerald William Ondash, MD
My visit to Dr. Ondash was the worst experience I have ever had at a doctor’s appointment. I would not recommend him to anyone. On the day of 12/24/2012 I arrived at the doctor’s office forty-five minutes early. Set in the waiting room an hour and a half. After finally being called back, set undressed for over thirty minutes, and was told to get dress the doctor was not going to see me today, because he was on call for someone else and needed to go to the hospital. However, he will write my prescription I needed for blood pressure pills. He came in, and put the intake information I filled out into the computer. I received my prescription and left. I should have found out who was on call for him.This is the treatment I received from Dr. Ondash, with him knowing I needed a check-up, because I was told to see my primary after an urgent care visit for my heart. I received a billing statement stating I owe $30.00 co-payment. I was informed on appointment date that there will be no charge to me. Moreover, I am being charged for services that was not received. Therefore, it is fraudulently to charge the insurance company, or myself for a New Patient, Level 2 visit. On the grounds that I never received a check-up of any kind.I spoke with your billing representative Larisa, whom informed me that I had to pay a fee even if I did not receive my new patient check-up. That if I had received the check-up it would have been free, since I did not it is a fee. This office has offered me the opportunity to pick-up my prescription on two different occasion without seeing the doctor, I chose to wait on the appointment dated because I have to drive from Las Vegas to Vista, Ca. After all I went through now they are charging me for what I could have received at no charge. To top it all off I drove from Las Vegas to be at that doctor appointment, had to stay in a hotel, because I wanted to be seen by someone I could continue to see after I move to San Diego. Dr. Ondash did not give me a physical, after I invested time and money getting to San Diego, now I am asked to pay for services that was not rendered.

My children have been patients of Vista Community Clinic for a couple of years from the oldest 18 to the youngest 2. I will not lie and say that the wait is not long (I normally carry a book and snacks) but when we get to see their pediatrician its worth the wait. During the years I have seen my share of different doctors but all are very great with my kids, patient and always have the time to listen to my concerns. The clinic has a pharmacy and children dentistry in the same building and very close to my home with availability to evening hour and Saturdays also. In time hopefully the wait time will get better but that is fine as long as my children get the care that is needed.

Dr. Jeffrey Newman saved my life about two years ago, by instantly recognizing that I had the symptoms of a burst aorta. Within minutes, he had his staff arrange for my urgent need for surgery to repair the break which was close to pumping the last of my blood into my stomach. This, of course, would have cost me my life.Let me recommend to your readers this caring physician
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.
