How does a Doctor prescribe HBOT?


HBOT is usually offered as a referral and consultation service. A consultation appointment will be made for the patient once the written referral and authoration has been received by the referring physician.

The Patients first appointment will last several hours. The appointment will consist of an in depth assessment by our Hyperbaric wound care team; a review of the medical history, blood test or additional tests if needed will determine if the patient has an accepted indication for treatment. Once the accepted indication is determined, the treatment plan is communicated to the primary care physician, who remains an active member of the patients wound care management.

HBOT is a supplemental therapy to be used in addition to current medical and surgical therapy. The Hyperbaric Wound Care Center provides outpatient and inpatient wound care on an individualized care plan designed to provide the patient with the best possible healing outcomes.
