Welcome to “Throwback Thursdays” in June. I’ve noticed that patients are having increasing problems affording wound care supplies as a result of the high deductibles under the Affordable Care Act. I confess I am having to go back to tricks I used in the 1990’s like grinding up oral antibiotic tablets or opening capsules and putting the medication topically on wounds with high bacterial burden.

Dr. Fife sees patients at the CHI St. Luke's Hospital Wound Clinic in The Woodlands, Texas. For an appointment call (936) 266-2150.
