Shorten your Healing at Portneuf Wound Care Center!
The word wound is used to describe our greatest pains, but like so many things in life, it’s not the event, as much as the time lost and the subsequent healing which stings the most. With a chronic wound, it might mean keeping you from vacation, staying active or preventing you from showering regularly. Our job is to you get back to your life as quickly as possible. Because we know that healing time is the biggest driver of costs, in working with problematic wounds, it is important to make sure you have the right team in place.
“We will continue to work together to assure that our patients have optimal outcomes” – Dr. Jared Price, Wound Specialist Physician at Portneuf Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center.
Portneuf Wound Team provides evidence-based treatment and works closely with your primary care physician and local specialists to ensure you’re getting everything you need to heal quickly and effectively. Your success is important to us, but we are aware that saying it is one thing and proving it is quite another.
