To the Integrative Hyperbaric Center Friends,

I had to write a note of thanks for your help the past three years. We have utilized the services for the California location for my son Jeff who has autism and a variety of health issues.

Jeff completed some hyperbaric treatments at your facility based on physician recommendations. Your staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Getting my son to wear the “space suit hood” and into the chamber was easy! We enjoyed the time together – all the while obtaining a medical treatment!

This by far was the biggest blessing for me and my son. Blood draws used to require 4-5 adults to complete. At your facility, we could obtain a blood draw (even with multiple specialty labs) in less than 15 minutes from walking in the door and leaving with my son! At the local hospital this typically would take up to 1.5 hours. It's not just about the time. My son used to be traumatized by getting necessary blood work. Because of your facility and staff – it is a breeze! Thank you.

Jeff used to be very nervous about medical offices. Your clinic is anything but medical looking! From the kid friendly waiting room, family like kitchen, to the blood draw / patient exam room and into the hyperbaric treatment room – all were decorated for kids and have kid-friendly toys and treats. This made the experience so positive for my son.

Thank you again for creating a special place for families to get the help and medical attention they need. I greatly appreciate your attention to detail and all the services for my family. It has made a difference.
