The healing begins here!!!
About five million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. About two million of those are complications from diabetes. The Fulton County Hospital Wound Clinic is a comprehensive outpatient center to treat those wounds. If you have a wound that has not started to heal within 2 weeks or has not completely healed in 6 weeks, talk to your health care provider. You may need a wound care specialist. Our expert clinicians provide individualized treatment based on your needs. We work closely with your primary care provider or surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome. We also place a major emphasis on education, teaching you how to care for your wound to enhance the healing process.
We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances.
Types of wounds treated include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Arterial and venous disease ulcers
- Traumatic wounds (injuries and bites)
- Radiation tissue damage
- Infected wounds
The length of treatment is determined by your needs, as recommended by our wound care specialist.

- Anthony Anston, DO (wound care specialist)
- Sonja Jones, RN (clinic manager)

Frequently asked questions:
Does this mean I have to change my doctor?
No. Our office will work with your primary care provider 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 and assess the wound(s), and order any necessary blood work and/or x-rays. Both are done at our facility. They will then discuss recommendations for your treatment plan. Please bring medical records if available, current medication list, and photo identification (driver's license), and insurance cards.
