Frequently Asked Wound Care Center Questions 

How do I get help from the Wound Care Center?
Call the Wound Care Center directly or ask your doctor for a referral. To make an appointment, call (302) 744-7500.

Does this mean I have to change doctors?
Not at all. In fact, the Wound Care Center works with your physician as we would with any medical specialist. We inform your doctor on all aspects of your treatment with frequent progress reports. While you’ll be receiving treatment for your wound from the Wound Care Center, you’ll continue to receive all of your routine care from your physician.

Does insurance cover treatment?
Many health plans cover Wound Care Center treatments. We can help you determine what your specific plan covers.

What can I expect at the first appointment?
The first appointment consists of an in-depth assessment by our wound care team, a review of your medical history, blood tests or other tests if needed, and recommendations for your treatment plan. Please bring your medical records, insurance card, a list of your medications, and a list of your allergies to the first appointment. Your first visit may take up to two hours.

What causes non-healing wounds?
Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease and immobility. People with diabetes are at particular risk. If you have a wound that won’t heal, you are not alone. The good news is that you no longer have to suffer. The Wound Care Center not only uses among the most advanced therapies available for healing, but it also addresses the underlying cause of the wound to help eliminate recurrence.
