Goff closer to walking again thanks to Advanced Wound Center

Lyndon Goff’s goal was to get back on his feet. When he found a foot wound that started to quickly deteriorate, he went straight to Hillcrest Medical Center. After his wound was evaluated, he was referred to the hospital’s Advanced Wound Center for additional treatment. 

“I was doing my laundry one day and I saw a blood spot on my sock,” said Goff. “I checked my foot, and I had a little hole in my foot.”  

Goff says because of his diabetes, this kind of wound simply appearing is normal for him.
