Downtown Health Plaza Of Baptist Hospital
I called to get an appointment for my daughter and the lady cut me off and i waited for ten minutes for some one to answer again, when some one did it was the same lady and she said my daughter that was 6 months old and needed her shots couldn't come in for another 3 months! Shes a Baby for goodness sakes! They send me a letter saying she needs a check up every month but they wont let me make her an appointment but every 3 to 4 months, im trying to change her doctors office but its such a hassle. Also they have like 6 diffrent numbers to call, like the dental and eye center number, it just keeps ringing and then the lady on the phone said that there is no dental and eye center so what the hell, it is so hard to find a number to call to actually get some one to talk to! The hospital knows us well cause we always have to go there cause the DownTown Health Plaza dosent wanna see her ever!
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.
