When Should I Seek Treatment for My Wound at Wound Care Center?

Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Care Center if:

  • You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes)
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor, or a change in color
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected.

Proven Success in a Caring Supportive Environment

What to bring to your first appointment:

  • A list of any medications you’re currently taking as well as any allergies you’re aware of
  • Medical records including x-ray films if you have them
  • Insurance forms or cards

How to Start Healing

  1. Generally, the physician currently treating you will refer you to our Center for specialized care. You can also make an appointment directly.
  2. When you call for your first appointment, we will ask you a few questions about your wound and your health in general.
  3. Before treatment, our team of doctors and nurses will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history.
  4. Tests may be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to determine if there’s any infection present.
  5. Together with your physician, we’ll develop a treatment program based on your special needs.
  6. We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you’ll return to your doctor for follow-up care

There’s No Longer any Reason to Live with a Non-Healing Wound

With our caring staff and specialized treatment plans developed just for you, we have what you need to get back on your feet again.
