This facility has been a life saver for our family. The staff has been professional and courteous, the doctors very good and caring. Never a long wait. We live in Union County, where there is no urgent care. The wait at ER is a minimum of 3 hours and the treatment you get is not as good as it is a Piedmont West. Takes weeks to get an appointment with your primary care physician. You would either be dead or well by the time you got to see him/her. We have been coming to Piedmont West for several years and have never had a complaint of any sort. I recommend it to everyone.

I saw doctor Sick for pain in chest. He took chest x-ray and found some spots. He wanted me to have a cat scan to rule out lung cancer. It has been two weeks and still do not have appointment. When I call back, I am referred to nurse who never answers calls. Guess people over 65 are expendable. Doctors aren't taking new medicare patients. Really don't know where to turn.

I have been coming to Piedmont West since it opened. The doctors and all employees are extremely kind and caring. They are also respected in the medical community. It is comforting to know there are such knowledgable and capable professionals in our community.

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.
