What about follow up visits?
It is very important that you are committed to healing your wound, which requires that you come to each scheduled clinic visit. Studies have shown improved wound healing when patients show up for each clinic visit. Each time you come to the clinic, we will check your wound, evaluate the need to clean and re-dress the wound, and review any tests with you that have been performed in the interim. Every visit you will have the opportunity to ask questions or voice your concerns, and we will provide answers and explain forthcoming steps in the healing process.
