Wound Care Services

At the Wound Care Clinic, we work to heal your wound as quickly as possible in order to minimize risk of complications related to the wound and move you closer to your best health.

Your primary care provider and specialty care providers work as a team to identify and treat any underlying factors that are delaying your healing process.  Once there is a complete health assessment, you will have a personalized treatment plan to heal your wound.
