Lifetime Family Urgent Care
Ive been to different urgent care facilities, ER waiting rooms and have seen other physicians, but none of them can compare to the quality of service that I recieved at Lifetime Family Urgent Care. When I came as a first time patient I had no idea of the service I was about to recieve. Im use to the normal rude, in a hurry kind of place, where the doctor only sees you for a mere 5minutes, if that, but not here. I was greeted by smiles at reception, very friendly and informative, and the medical assistants that took me back into the room was also very up-beat and kind. They took down all of my medical history and any concerns that I was having, and shortly after I was seeing Dr. Yousef. He's not like most doctors, he actually takes his time to listen to all of your concerns and answer all of your questions. He is very informative and easy to talk to, which you dont find that quality in many physicians, they seem to always be in a hurry to get out of the room, but that wasnt the case here. I left the office feeling like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, finally a doctor that listens and cares. Not only are they an urgent care facility but also a family doctor, I know because I just switched, and now I found out they also have a weight loss program, this might just be the place to kick start my New Year's Resolution a little early. Thank you Dr.Yousef and staff for all of your help and for taking care of me :)

Lifetime Family Urgent Care
Dr. Yousef truly cares about his patients! My son had to get stitches and he was so calming and caring. My son wants to say thank you for stitching him up. He took his time and made sure my son was numbed up before proceeding. Thank you Dr. Yousef for all that u did for us tonight! I completely trust his judgement and loved his nurses and staff. You can't honestly get a better group of people than he has. Well done. And we always tell him, he is our extended family! We Love that entire office!
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.
