Awful experience. Minimum 2 hour wait time with each visit. The doctor spent less than 5 minutes in the exam room. My wounds never progressed in the two years under his care. I finally went with a different doctor. I'm now almost completely healed after 6 months.

My mother was recently at an LTAC for a complicated wound . Dr. Rafols was very attentive and thoroughly explained the type of treatments she would be needing. Because of his great care, he managed to prevent amputation.
