This is the beginning of your healing journey. We are a group of trained wound care specialists here to help you in your home. We come to you through a combination of at-home and online visits, with physician oversight from start to recovery.
What to expect from your home visit
A certified physician associate or nurse practitioner will call you approximately 30 minutes prior to arriving at your home within the appointment window (8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for morning appointments; 12-5 p.m. for afternoon appointments). When they arrive, they will greet you by name and will answer any questions you may have about your wound.
During your visit, they will examine your wound for any changes, provide needed debridement or wound cleaning, and properly dress your wound. All of our providers strongly emphasize patient education. They will explain what they are doing and how you can take the best care of your wound and yourself. They will also schedule your next appointment for you.
