O'Brien James MD
Very disappointed for my experience. Dr. O'Brien and/or his office seem to be more interested in generating incomes than caring for his patients. Suspecting I may not have "solid" sleep at night, I went to see Dr. O'Brien. I had a home test first that was "inconclusive" and then Dr. O'Brien prescribed a full test for me in a sleep center set up in a hotel. The final result is also negative. I then had two follow up appointments, at least one of them was not necessary. I met with his assistant first, who actually fixed up someone else charge/result with mine and scared me for a moment with severe sleep apnea, then realized she was mistaken with another patient's test result. I met with the doctor a few weeks later again with no new advice or suggestion for treatment either (because I have no sleep apnea). The office also charged me $25 for one of the appointments I could not make. I called the office at least 3 times and Prohealthy billing office also sent the office an email to ask them to contact me. But they refused to return my phone calls or contact me. Eventually they had a collection agency calling my house phone daily. To stop the call, I finally paid the $25, which I think is unfair but not worth my time to argue about it. I would absolutely not recommend this doctor. Considering my experience, my rating of "poor" (2-star) is pretty fair and generous.

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.
