At SWCA, Patient Satisfaction is Our #1 Priority

Surgical Wound Care Associates, Tennessee (SWCA-TN) is a community-based outpatient wound care practice that participates in WELS CARE, Wound Excellence and Limb Salvage. The goal of SWCA is to work seamlessly with primary care providers, referring providers, home health agencies, and other specialists to coordinate efficient, comprehensive wound care through cutting edge evidence-based treatments. Communication and collaboration are key to effective patient care.


My name is George Brown and I am a diabetic with a history of slow healing wounds.
Three months ago, upon my doctor’s orders, I started going to SWCA in Knoxville, TN for care for a large wound on the bottom of my foot. Skin grafts were placed on my wound during several visits over the next two-and-a-half months, and the wound has now completely healed. The environment was always pleasant at SWCA and I enjoyed speaking with the staff during my visits. I highly recommend SWCA for anyone that might need wound care.

I had the unfortunate pleasure of being a patient of Kim’s for about 4 months. I was a weekly visitor during those 4 months, and was already treated with great service from nurses and doctors. Kim was great about keeping me updated with how my progress was going with my wound. It was a comfortable office environment, and I was always taken back within 5 minutes of arriving for my appointment which was great for me, as I was driving one hour to get to these appointments. I hope that I do not need their services again in the future, but if so I know that I would be in good, caring hands.

My name is James Rodgers. I was referred to you by my Primary Care Doctor John M. Robertson with an open wound on the front of my left leg below the knee. You immediately worked me in to see me in the Harrogate location, which I was so glad you could see me so rapidly! Your staff was so nice and so professional and really cared about my well-being. I can’t say enough about all of you, some I only met on the phone. So courteous! I thank you for your knowledge and expertness that you used to get me healed. I’m glad you care enough for helping people outside your area, traveling for miles to help others in need. You are a great group of people!
Thank you so much.
