FAQ

What services do you offer?

Our skilled and dedicated wound care physician offers an excellent mobile wound care consultation service for homebound patients. We provide treatment for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. This is accomplished conveniently, effectively, and compassionately at the patient’s bedside in their familiar home environment. The benefits for the patient and their family members or caregivers are tremendous. We work in coordination with the patient’s Home Health Care Agency and the patient’s primary care physician when they are involved in the care of a patient.

What is your coverage area?

Our mobile physician wound care consultation service covers most of Hillsborough County.

What type of wounds do you treat?

Dr. Leger has extensive wound care experience and will evaluate and treat all types of wound. It’s important to remember that treating and healing wounds requires a team effort. Therefore there may be a need to involve different specialists while treating more complex wounds. If necessary, we will try to coordinate the team with the common goal of healing wounds. Specialists that may be consulted include surgeons, plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons, and infectious disease physicians.

Who pays for the wound care visits?

The visits are usually covered by Medicare Part B as a physician medical visit. We only provide care to traditional Medicare patients at this time. Please call should you require additional information regarding insurance coverage.

How can we make an appointment?

Please call (813) 413-6780 or use the different contact options provided in the Contact Us page. With referrals, we will try to perform our first visit and initial assessment within a week or so.

During the first visit, we will explain our services in greater detail and set up an appropriate visit schedule. At times, we will try to coordinate our visits with the home health care nurse’s visit in order to facilitate communication.

What can I expect during a house call visit?

We usually schedule a visit within a week or so after receiving the referral or request for appointment for a wound care evaluation. We should be able to give an appropriate time of the day for the visit. We’ll call prior to the visit if we need to change the time. Due to traffic conditions and other circumstances, we make our best effort to get there within an hour of the appointment time.

The initial visit will include obtaining a detailed past history and pertinent physical examination. We will then establish a comprehensive treatment plan and we leave time to answer any questions you may have. A great patient – physician communication is one of our strengths.

We will then schedule follow up appointments, usually on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on the progress of wound healing.
