After a failed foot surgery 8 years ago which left me with an intractable wound on the sole of my right foot which could not be healed despite multiple attempts by wound specialists/clinics over many years, I ended up with a very serious infection which necessitated my hospitalization. I was subsequently referred to Dr. Peter Blume of New Haven, CT and upon my first visit with Dr. Blume, he was able to assess the nature and severity of my infection and within less than half an hour of my visit, he had me admitted to Yale New Haven hospital and scheduled for surgery. Dr. Blume then went on to perform surgery to remove infected portions of bones from my foot, prescribe essential antibiotics to treat my infection, and set up VNA visits to assist and monitor the healing process. After only a few months and less than a handful of follow up visits with Dr. Blume, a wound that had significantly impeded my ambulation and the quality of my life, is now fully healed and any traces of infection are now gone. Dr. Blume’s efforts on my behalf and his thoughtful and compassionate treatment of my condition are gratefully appreciated by myself and my family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other patients with similar injuries/wounds. The care he rendered was exceptional and the outcome was better than I could have hoped for.
