I am pleased to share my experience with Dr. Ide Costa and her excellent team of wound care experts. Caring for my grandmother at home presented many challenges and healing her complex wounds proved difficult. We consulted Advanced Wound Care and in collaboration with Ide and Cathy we were able to heal my grandmother’s multiples skin tears which caused her a lot of pain. Dr. Costa and Cathy visited virtually each week, assessing and offering personalized treatment. I strongly recommend the team at Advanced Wound Care as their compassionate, kind and evidence-based practice is unparalleled. Read More
