Utah Web Page corrected and updated

Hello Sir, I am emailing in regards to the “Diving Medicine Online” website which lists the hyperbaric physicians and chambers in my state when I Google search “utah hyperbarics” and then click on “Utah Dive Physicians and Chambers.” The information on that site for my facility is incorrect. Under “CHAMBERS” Dr. Michael Garey nor Tony Brownlee work for our facility anymore and the statement needs to be updated as well to read as follows: “Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber is unparalleled in the Intermountain region, being the only Accredited, hospital affiliated, multi-place hyperbaric chamber in Utah. Our dual-lock chamber can accommodate up to 12 patients and 2 inside attendants and up to 6 ATA. Our Physicians are in attendance at all times. We are located on the campus of Lakeview Hospital, in Bountiful, Utah.” Also under “DIVING PHYSICIANS” it again lists Dr. Garey who no longer works for us. Could you please have the information corrected or please inform me how to get it corrected. Also please add the following physician:

Dr. Tommy Love, D.O.
Wound and Hyperbaric Medical Director
Bountiful, Utah 84010

Thank you for your time.

"Chamber information in your website. Thanks for your initiative and let others that our Service is there to help those in need, in the Eastern Caribbean Region,not only in regular working hours but in an on call basis 24/7.

Our Chamber is a triple-lock 18 seated multiplace chamber located in Puerto Rico Medical Center, San Juan. The Staff consists of 5 physicans including myself, 5 hyperbaric nurses and 3 HBO techs.

Although the main purpose of the service is the clinical, those conditions associated to multisystemic and musculoskeletal trauma are more our bread and butter, last year we treated 75 DCS related cases in our chamber, a busy place year round. "
