The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
You must make an appointment to receive treatment at The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. Most patients are referred by their primary care physician. During your first appointment, a physician will identify your wound and evaluate your health status to determine what treatment is necessary to help heal your chronic wound. The size and depth of your wound will be documented during your initial visit, and again during each subsequent visit.
