You may call the Wound Healing Center directly or be referred by your doctor. To make an appointment directly, call (585) 262-9100.
Non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly known as "bed sores"). An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds come from a variety of different medical conditions, and they don't heal for many different reasons.
No. In fact, the Wound Healing Center prefers to work with your physician or medical specialist during the treatments. We even keep your doctor informed with frequent progress reports. While you’ll be receiving treatment for your wound from the Wound Healing Center, you’ll continue to receive all of your routine care from your primary physician.
Many health plans cover Wound Healing Center treatments. Call us to determine what your specific plan covers.
The first appointment consists of an assessment by our skilled wound care team includes a review of your medical history, blood tests, taking wound photos and measurements in addition to starting a treatment plan. Please be sure to bring to this appointment your medical records, insurance information, a list of current medications, and a list of your allergies.
