Portneuf Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic

Your First Visit

We are very thorough and your initial visit may take up to 90 minutes, so please be prepared for the time necessary for your first appointment. Subsequent visits are not as long and will average between 30 - 40 minutes from the time you enter the treatment room.

During the initial visit a comprehensive medical history will be obtained and a physical examination performed. Of course, particular attention will be given to your wound.

Please bring a list of your current medications, including dosage. If any tests related to the wound have been performed outside of Portneuf Medical Center, please ask your primary care provider to fax a copy of the results to us for review prior to your appointment.

Depending on your type of wound, other studies may be ordered such as:

  • Tests to evaluate venous and/or arterial circulation
  • X-Rays and other imaging procedures
  • Blood tests
  • Cultures
