“Dr. Stillerman is very good at explaining what he is doing, why he’s doing it, and what he’s expecting the outcome to be.”

After months of struggling with a punch biopsy wound, Renee Cook found relief at the Samaritan Wound Care Center. The Watertown resident tried letting the wound heal on its own, but her physically demanding career and active lifestyle prevented it from mending completely. Thankfully, Dr. James Stillerman and the specialized team at Samaritan’s Wound Care Center were there to take her healing to the next level.

“I’ve watched the progress (of my wound) every week,” she said. “I understand that caring for a wound is not magic; I understand that it’s a lot of work. But when the outcome ends up good, you forget all of that. I understand that every case is not the same, but I know I’m happy with mine.”
