Your First Appointment at St. Luke's Clinic – Wound and Hyperbarics

When you arrive for your first visit, we’ll evaluate your wound and general health in order to determine the best treatment option.
 

Your initial evaluation will take about two hours. It will include:

  • A review of your medical history
  • Physical examination
  • Wound evaluation (this may include photographs) 
  • Testing to learn more about your blood and oxygen flow in the wound area 
Please bring:

  • A list of all medications you currently take (including over-the-counter medicines)
  • A list of all allergies
  • Insurance information
  • Any recent medical records you have available

Your Healing Program

Our team will use your test results to create a customized treatment program. This includes regular visits to our clinic for treatment, where we’ll evaluate your progress and adjust your treatment plan, as needed. You (or your caregiver) will receive detailed instructions in home care, dressing (bandage) changes, and protecting the wound from further injury.

Your Role in Recovery

You play a significant role in the success of your treatment. We will count on you to keep your appointments, follow directions carefully, and monitor your progress closely between visits. We’ll be available to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal. 

Your Care Team

While you receive treatment at our clinic, we’ll work with your primary care provider to discuss your treatment program and provide updates on your progress.
