We hear this comment from patients who learn about the availability of hyperbaric medicine every day. It is never a bad thing to ask your regular physician about many concerns such as diet choices, potential allergies, medications (particularly combinations of medications and/or supplements), and a wide range of issues that can affect your health.


During this pandemic, we will try and minimize risks to patients and staff. Guidance changes frequently, so we may need to change our recommendations over time.

We ask that all patients come into the office wearing a mask. Masks may be removed at the instruction of the staff for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
