Our staff will evaluate your wound and general health, as well as reviewing your medical history.

In addition, you may be referred for laboratory testing, to make sure that you don't have an infection or a problem with your nutritional status that prevents you from healing.
When your test results are in, we'll put together a treatment program based upon your special needs. This program will include regular visits to the Wound Care Center to provide treatment, evaluate progress, and make any changes that might be needed.
