House Calls by a Podiatrist
We provide state-of-the-art wound care to our homebound patients. Our podiatric physicians allow homebound patients to benefit from our latest treatment techniques, therapies, and tools.
Our in-home services include state-of-the-art diagnostics, specialized dressings, topical growth factors and surgical debridement. Our portable hyperbaric oxygen therapy is available to those patients who qualify for it. We can also assist diabetic patients to obtain orthopedic shoes and other durable medical equipment (D.M.E.).
We pride ourselves on having the most qualified and caring professionals attending to our housebound patients. Wound care education for the patient is part of our house call protocol, ensuring the patient follows a specific regimen intending to his or her feet. Transportation is arranged when our specialists feel a patient needs attention in a hospital or clinic-based treatment center.
