Does this mean I have to change my doctor?
No. Our office will work with your primary physician and will keep them informed on all aspects of treatment and provide frequent progress reports.
What can I expect at the first appointment?
During your first visit, our wound care staff will review your medical history. They will assess the wound/wounds and order test -blood work or x-ray- that may need to be done. They will then discuss recommendations for your treatment plan. Please bring medical records if available, current medication list and photo ID and insurance cards.
