Our Wound Care Team
We work together with teams from many medical specialties to provide care that encompasses all of your health needs. Expect a personal level of care while we treat your condition.
Your care team may include some of these specialists:
- Diabetes specialist – This condition specialist can help you carefully monitor your diet, provide exercise tips and work with you on blood sugar maintenance. Those who live with diabetes are at a higher risk for developing wounds; your specialist can help you with wound care questions or treatments you need. Learn more about our diabetes care.

- Primary care doctor – Your primary care doctor will help coordinate care and make sure your general health needs are addressed.

We take a team approach to heal the whole person, not just the wound for which they’re being treated. We work together to ensure your medications are effective, help prevent complications and check up on your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
