Wound Clinic frequently asked questions
Q: How do I get help from the Wound Clinic?
A: You may call the Wound Clinic directly or be referred by your doctor. To make an appointment, call 765-865-3300.
Q: Does going to the Wound Clinic mean I will have to change doctors?
A: Not at all. The Wound Clinic works with your personal physician the same way we would with any medical specialist. We keep your doctor informed on all aspects of your treatment with frequent progress reports. While you’ll be receiving treatment for your wound from the Wound Clinic, you’ll continue to receive all of your routine care from your physician.
Q: Does insurance cover treatment?
A: Many health plans cover Wound Clinic treatments. We can help you determine what your specific plan covers.
Q: What can I expect at the first appointment?
A: The first appointment consists of an in-depth assessment by our wound care team, a review of your medical history, blood tests and/or additional tests if needed and recommendations for your treatment plan. Please bring the following to your first appointment: your medical records, insurance card, a list of all medications you are taking and a list of allergies you may have.
Q: What kind of treatment can I expect?
A: When your test results are in, we'll put together a treatment program based on your special needs. This program will include regular visits to the Wound Clinic to provide treatment, evaluate progress and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.
