"...no other products have helped like AmeriGel has..."
I have been using AmeriGel Wound Dressing and Care Lotion on my problem patients for just a few short weeks, and I've already begun to see very good results. I have used many other products, such as creams, casts, gels and dressings, but none have helped my patients with chronic or problem wounds like AmeriGel has. I am going to continue using these products on other patients.

"...proven to be one of the most effective dressings I have ever used.."
AmeriGel has proven to be one of the most effective dressings I have ever used. It is great on many types of wounds as it starts healing almost immediately. I have tried many other products with little, or slow success. AmeriGel is clearly superior. I have recommended this product to my patients and the hospitals I am affiliated with.

"...great results with Amerigel post matrixectomy..."
I have done thousands of these since writing the original paper on NaOH matrixectomies in 1980." "I personally, have had great results with AmeriGel use after these procedures and it is my standard at this time, eliminating the need for soaking 2 times a day.

"...a "blessing" to my patients in many ways..."
AmeriGel Wound Dressing has been a "blessing" to my patients in many ways. First, it is OTC and relatively inexpensive making longer-term therapy cost-effective for my patients. Second, the diabetic neuropathic ulcerations I have treated have granulated and re-epithelialized more rapidly with AmeriGel than Panafil or Santyl and AmeriGel rivals Regranex's results at 1/20th the cost! Last but certainly not least, Amerigel has shortened the healing period for my phenol matrixectomies as well as obviated the need for post-op soaking. Thank you for helping me more effectively treats my patients!

"...I use AmeriGel as a first choice..."
Regranex is 20 times more expensive, but not 20 times better. I use AmeriGel Wound Dressing as a first choice wound care topical in diabetic ulcers in addition to nail matrixectomy post-op care. My patients love the convenience of once a day dressing changes.

After thirty years in private practice, I cannot believe the incredible results using AmeriGel (Wound Dressing) compared to soaking after nail matrixectomy. In fact, when I give the patients a choice between soaking and AmeriGel, 99% request AmeriGel. This is a win-win situation for everybody.

"...Amerigel is a terrific product..."
Recently I relocated to another part of the state. I investigated new products to enable myself to standout from my peers. AmeriGel Wound Dressing is a terrific product for my post-op phenol matrixectomies. My patient's appreciate the convenient qd dressing changes as well as the easy accessibility when purchasing it in the office. The Amerigel Care lotion for Diabetics is another success. My patient's are complimenting the office left and right!

"...30% reduction in healing time, less drainage..."
There are so many wound healing products available. They always make the claim that they reduce healing time. I've tried numerous products, so I was hesitant to try AmeriGel Wound Dressing, feeling it was just another "product." Boy, was I wrong. I have noticed a 30% reduction in healing time, less drainage and a satisfied patient. No more soaks and Cortisporin Otic.
