See what our patients have to say about Valley Wound Care Specialists
27 years ago an Orthopedic Doctor unsuccessfully tried to attach my severed Achilles Tendon. I was getting no where in healing. I changed Dr.'s and was finally helped with care in the California Bay Area. After a year, I was out of a wheel chair, walker, cane and bandages and I was once again able to wear shoes. Unfortunately my incision broke open and it broke open every few years and it took months to heal. Last March of 2017 the incision broke open once again. My primary Dr. suggested Home Health. The healing was not going well and they suggested I make an appointment with Dr. Michael Berman. He felt very confident that the wound could be closed. His suggested procedure was explained in layman's terms. He is compassionate and ever so dedicated to his patients. I consider him a Genius!!! With his miracle treatment and suggestions on my part I was healed in less than 2 1/2 months. He had various methods for healing and we worked together to get this incision healed. If anyone has a wound of any kind Dr. Berman's knowledge surpasses any Dr. that has treated me over the years. Believe me there have been many. His Staff is amazing . I have never seen a better run office. Everyone treats you like family.
After sustaining a large leg wound in the first week of November, and treating it myself with little healing results, on December 15th. I was referred to the Valley Wound Care Specialists. My first visit was a very enlightening one after Dr. Michael Berman and his staff explained the healing process of a large wound. I was given two options for treatment. One was to be provided with the supplies I would need, with instructions from VWCS on how to care for my wound at home. The second option was to allow them to put a boot (wrap) on my leg, in their office, with the necessary medications applied for healing. I chose the second option. This process continued weekly until the wound was healed. After five boot applications my leg was looking completely normal again. At no time did I experience pain or discomfort in this healing process.
The personal care and concern that I received at Valley Wound Care Specialists, from Dr Berman and his staff was more than I had anticipated. I highly recommend them to anyone with any kind of wound that is not healing correctly. I can only say, “Thank you Dr. Berman and staff for such excellent care."
"...The outstanding group of doctors, nurses and staff at Valley Wound Care Specialists healed my ulcers in less than 6 months, the end to an excruciatingly and debilitatingly painful ordeal that had lasted more than 6 years! Everyone at VWCS is personable and caring. Beyond being knowledgeable, their practice of a willingness to think outside the box regarding treatment options was critical to their success in my case...."
I knew I was in the right place when I had my first appointment with the Valley Wound Care Specialists. The office staff, nurses and Doctor were all friendly and welcoming. I knew they cared about me and wanted to help! Without their encouragement, health advice and outstanding care, I would not have progressed as quickly in the wound healing process. I am excited to be healed, but I will miss this amazing team of people!
