Wound Care Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a consultation from the Wound Care Center at Charlton?
You may call the wound care center directly or be referred by your doctor. To make an appointment directly, call 508-248-8105.

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 (which can lead to pressure ulcers commonly known as "bed sores"). An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds come from a variety of different medical conditions, and they don't heal for many different reasons.

Will I have to change my primary doctor or specialist?
No. In fact, the Wound Care Center prefers to work with your physician or medical specialist during the treatments. We even keep your doctor informed 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 primary physician.
