Taras Ian H MD & Edward MD FACOG
Dr. Taras is a rare breed. He takes the time to listen to his patients, provide thorough explanations, alternative solutions and answer emails after hours! His compassionate approach reminds me of bygone days when doctors genuinely cared for your well-being, took a holistic approach and felt like family. While pap smears and pelvis exams aren't exactly my cup of tea, Dr. Taras and his assistant Corinne immediately put me at ease. His charming and cheerful bedside manner makes my annual visits as pleasant as they can be. And although he is not within network, his fees are reasonable. It goes without saying, you can't put a price on excellent health care. I can't recommend Dr. Taras and his lovely staff highly enough! After putting off my annual exams and health concerns for so long, I am grateful to have found him. Thank you, Team Taras!

Dr. Rana is an excellent surgeon. He did my knee replacement and I recovered way faster than I could have ever expected for a big surgery. He will explain things in an easy to understand way, and he takes the time to go over what to expect. He has great bedside manner. Whenever I talk to his patients in the waiting area, they all have the best things to say. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an Orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Cris is truly a professional dedicated to listening. She made me feel safe and comfortable to open up to her and share my deepest fears as well as my wishes and desires. She explained how psychotherapy combined with medications will help me feel better and have a happier and more rewarding life.

The finest physicians I have ever been acquainted with. Caring, considerate and very proactive with care. You may have to wait longer in the office but remember, it might be you one day who needs their special care and others will wait. I am willing to wait for the best for me and my whole family!

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.
