What to expect from your
first appointment

Patients are mostly referred by their primary care physician, and the program operates by appointment.  The Wound Center also accepts self-referral patients. Patients undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound you have and the underlying problems causing the wound.

The initial appointment consists of a full assessment to determine the etiology of the wound, the appropriate classification and size of the wound, the overall health status of the patient and the patient’s ability to comply with needed therapies.

Based on the evaluation, a customized treatment plan is developed to optimize the therapies best suited to address the patient’s needs. Wound size and depth are documented at the initial visit, and again at each subsequent visit. Some of the diagnostic modalities which may be used include:

  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Radiology (including MRI)
  • Transcutaneous oxygen testing
  • Vascular studies, electrocardiogram
  • Ultrasound

After this determination, a program specifically tailored to your needs will be initiated based on the most effective treatment options. An interdisciplinary approach will be used to provide the maximum healing possible.

Our specialized wound care is administered on an outpatient basis. Patients are free to drive themselves to the Center for therapy. If needed, we are available to assist with arranging transportation to and from The Wound Center. We are also available to assist you in determining how your health insurance and benefits coverage may apply.
