New Patients: What to Expect

Our program operates by appointment, and we are often able to schedule your initial visit within a week of your call. Please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time to register and fill out paperwork. Bring a list of all your allergies and medications along with your insurance card.

Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Your first exam will include an in-depth assessment by a nurse and physician to understand your wound.
  2. This assessment may include blood work, imaging scans and vascular studies, which examine any damage to your veins and arteries.
  3. After your initial consult, we will design a specialized treatment plan to heal the wound as quickly as possible. You will most likely have weekly appointments with a physician, and a nurse case manager will help handle your care.

Please note: We accept most insurance plans, however some may require pre-authorization.
