You can be seen at our wound center on Thursday from 1:00-5:00; however, we will be happy to meet your wound care needs at any other time of the week during our hours of operation. All we need to start assisting you to a better, healthier life is an order from your physician. On your first appointment, we ask that you bring it along with your insurance card. Our friendly, clerical staff will be happy to assist you with setting up an appointment to meet us. Please come at least 30 minutes early for your first appointment to fill out some new patient information with our registration office. You should expect to spend about an hour with your therapist for your initial evaluation. He or she will discuss your limitations and come up with a treatment plan to assist with meeting your rehabilitation needs. Treatment visits usually last about 45 minutes based on individual needs.
