Our organization’s mission is to empower and transform lives by delivering innovative solutions to combat poverty and support you through a difficult process. As part of the LA Community First Response Team, Optimal Healthcare LA is offering Free consultation from a referred Physician regarding Molecular Diagnostics. Our Physicians are licensed and regulated by the Medical Board of California. Everyday we get closer to our goal, by providing public service to assit you fight back a real serious illness.
Bacteria grow as either individual (planktonic) cells or in complex communities of cells called biofilms. Infections caused by biofilms, often harboring many different types of micro-organisms, have been shown to be much more resistant to treatment. It is now believed that over 99 percent of all bacteria live as a community and attach to surfaces as biofilms. According to the National Institutes of Health, it is believed that approximately 80 percent of all infections in humans are related to biofilms. With molecular diagnostics offered by PathoGenius, physicians are able to know exactly which pathogenic micro-organisms are present in any biofilm.
Biofilms have been shown to play a role in many infections of the ear, nose, throat, and respiratory tract, including: ear (recurrent acute otitis media, otitis media, otitis media with effusion, cholesteatoma), chronic tonsillitis, chronic pharyngitis, chronic rhinosinusitis, epiglottitis, laryngotracheitis, pneumonia, and pulmonary infections in cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis and bronchiolitis.
Dr. Randy Wolcott has been practicing medicine for almost thirty years and focusing on treating "unhealable" wounds the last twelve. His personal research at the Wound Care Center's Research and Testing Laboratories and his collaboration with biofilm experts in the wound care field have earned him international recognition.
I met "Randy" in October of 2010 and interviewed him, staff members and his patients to get a sense of how advanced their diagnostic & treatment methods really were. Their treatment approach has set a new (and badly needed) standard of care for treating chronic bacterial biofilm infections.
