From the very beginning Scott was friendly, courteous, professional, and walked me through every step he would be taking to care for my wound. His bedside manner put me completely at ease. The staff, from the front office on through was fabulous as well. My thanks to: Jazz, Brittney, Nichole, Debra, Kate, Kristine, Nardos, Monse, and Michelle. Everyone was so kind and considerate. I have already shared with many people that the wound care center is "top drawer". Thank you to ALL!

Dr. Bolhack is thorough, encouraging and a positive force in healing wounds. He takes his time, explains what he is doing and doesn't rush you when you need answers.

Individuals who are experiencing problems with wounds, sores, decubitus ulcers, etc. have a place that they can go and receive better care than they could have imagined. The staff at the Wound Care Center at Northwest help in healing your body, giving tender attention as they assuage ones spirit with information and loving care to you as a person, not a number. The superlatives available cannot describe the admiration and trust that I have for these kind, intelligent and committed professionals.
in Tucson, AZ |
I was in dire straights when I first visited Dr. Bolhack. He immediately set me at ease and was very gentle in regards to my open wounds. He is one of the best doctors I have EVER interacted with. He is a master of his trade. His staff are very professional and capable. I highly recommend Dr. Bolhack should your wounds ever need attention.

He is the BEST. I recommend him to everyone! Had I had him years ago I'm positive that I would not have had an amputation.
