The Wound Care Clinic provides consulting services and care of wounds to promote healing when specialty services are required. Part of our focus includes the evaluation and treatment of chronic wounds where there may be an underlying health related issue that prevents the wound from healing naturally.
Our Wound Care Clinic patients benefit from the state-of-the-art care our staff provides. We identify and treat the factors contributing to the chronic wound and coordinate our treatment efforts with the patient’s referring physician. Our team includes:
- Dr. Gregory Ripich
- Nursing support staff
