Port City Urgent Care and Family Practice
I was seen at PCUC&FP on Sunday 8-5-2012, for a Workman's Compensation injury, by Clint David Price, P.A. I was so impressed by the care and concern given me that I am seriously considering making them my primary doctor. Mr. Price made me feel as if I was the most important patient he had seen all day, It has always been my experience that in an Urgent Patient situation, I am treated as if I'm just wasting their "oh so valuable time". My work injury was almost 2 months ago and yet my WC provider has still not scheduled me with the proper medical provider, so in the mean time, I'm not only am convinced that the longer the wait the more damage I am doing but I've also been left in limbo with no consideration for the pain that I am in...which is getting worse everyday. Clint Price not only performed tests that have never been conducted to conclude what areas are the worst, he has also offered to assist me to the best of his ability to help me get an appointment with a specialist, which is so much more than anyone I've spoke to regarding my injury has yet to do. I have 100% confidence in Clint's ability to treat me. Like most people I cannot afford to be out of work even though I know this is only worsening my condition, but we do what we must to survive, right? So basically, at this time I'm squeaking through with some at home exercises and pain medication. So I'd like to take this opportunity to sat that 1) When asked I will recommend Clint Price, P.A. and PCUC&FP and 2) I'd like to personally thank Clint Price P.A. for his sympathetic and empathetic care of me and to let you know that you are doing a FANTASTIC job...Thank you for all that you do!

I HIGHLY recommend this UC over any other in Wilmington! You are in and out in less than an hour! Very friendly, concerned & compassionate staff. No long wait in lobby, nor a long wait in the room. Even called my pharmacy to order my RX to where I only had to pick it up and then even gave me a follow-up call - not always - but they do when they can. And, being a religious nut job (follower of Christ) myself - I was having a stressful time in my life - shared it with the dr and he offered to pray with me - so that spoke volumes to me along with everything else I mentioned!!!

Consistent care every time for both of my kids. All of the providers are great. Everyone I have spoken to communicates promptly and clearly in the office and on the phone. If I have ever waited "too long"/beyond 15 minutes, it was with the confidence my children would get the same great care as those before them and that we would have the time we needed too. The office is clean, lovely, comfortable and kid-friendly. Not scary and impersonal. Work-ins when my child(ren) have been sick have always been seamless. No complaints after four-plus years.

Truly fantastic,professional,and caring staff...my family and I have been here multiple times and every time its a great experience. I would recommend this place both as a family practice and an urgent care to anyone. Also they have very reasonable rates for anyone who does not have insurance. From the front staff to the back staff and all of the providers there- these guys have it together! I work in the medical field so I am very critical of medical offices and I honestly say...top notch service guys....great job!

Everyone there is super nice and they actually listen to you! The best part was I was having problems with my pharmacist and what my insurance would cover; so, I called the dr. Office back and they called the pharmacist and pushed him to get things moving and too look for other options. I have never had a doctor office help me the way they did!

One of the things I noticed first at PCUC was the cleanliness. The waiting room and patient areas were immaculate! The Dr. who took care of me provided me with the information and care I needed to get better, while not talking down to me like I was a toddler. Would recommend PCUC to anyone in Wilmington looking for urgent care.

Dr. Jeremy Pepper and his staff are exceptional professionals. They always make you feel comfortable, always willing to listen without rushing you. Always accommodating, Never rude or unprofessional. I recommend this facility to any one who needs a Dr. who takes the time to hear you. I travel from Jacksonville, NC.

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.
