Kelvin’s first used the services of the Johnston Therapeutic Wound Center during his recovery from a poisonous spider bite in 2008. “I get care from everyone; the secretaries, the nurses, the doctors. They’re all wonderful.”
“When I need an appointment, the staff gets me in right away. They’re friendly and they’re always smiling.” In the years since, he has developed lymphedema, a condition that causes painful swelling in his legs. Because he has diabetes and is prone to infections, he must watch closely for any scratches or breaks in his skin. The staff ordered compression stockings for Kelvin’s legs and helped him acquire a massage machine to reduce his swelling.
