Dr. Brimacombe is superior in wound care! He’ll keep you from having wounds revised by a plastic surgeon.

My experience with Dr. Brimacombe was horrible. He really didn't listen or seem to care about what I was experiencing. I wouldn't take my dog to him!

Dr. Brimacombe has been very good with the care of a wound on my foot that has reached the bone. He is patient, willing to try new treatments, but sometimes forgets that all non healing wounds are not diabetic related and the patient has feeling in the area being treated and topical medication is...more
