DO, CWSP, FACCWS, FAPWH
After working as the medical director of a local Hospitalist group for nearly a decade, I saw a need for doctors who specialize in wound management. There was a challenge in finding qualified physicians to help attend to patients with difficult wounds. I decided that I needed to learn to care for these difficult medical problems, focus on wound medicine, and help my patients.
Pioneering the field of Wound Medicine, I opened Valley Wound Care Specialists in 2005. Additionally, I serve as the Medical Director of the Abrazo Arrowhead Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center. Utilizing cutting edge technology and evidence-based medicine, I “Treat the whole patient, not just the hole in the patient.”
Our professional staff are dedicated to providing the highest level of care.
Our clinicians are extremely passionate about what they do and have dedicated their careers to wound care. Therapies can last from a few weeks to several months depending on the severity and type of wound.
All wounds heal at different rates and respond to different treatments. Our wound care professionals will meet with you on a weekly basis to ensure your course of treatment is perfectly designed for your healing needs. If needed, our staff is available more often for quicker visits and to aid with difficult wound care dressings and needs.
Valley Wound Care Specialists staff will help you obtain home care or durable medical equipment as needed, and will keep your other health care providers informed of your treatment and progress.

27 years ago an Orthopedic Doctor unsuccessfully tried to attach my severed Achilles Tendon. I was getting no where in healing. I changed Dr.'s and was finally helped with care in the California Bay Area. After a year, I was out of a wheel chair, walker, cane and bandages and I was once again able to wear shoes. Unfortunately my incision broke open and it broke open every few years and it took months to heal. Last March of 2017 the incision broke open once again. My primary Dr. suggested Home Health. The healing was not going well and they suggested I make an appointment with Dr. Michael Berman. He felt very confident that the wound could be closed. His suggested procedure was explained in layman's terms. He is compassionate and ever so dedicated to his patients. I consider him a Genius!!! With his miracle treatment and suggestions on my part I was healed in less than 2 1/2 months. He had various methods for healing and we worked together to get this incision healed. If anyone has a wound of any kind Dr. Berman's knowledge surpasses any Dr. that has treated me over the years. Believe me there have been many. His Staff is amazing . I have never seen a better run office. Everyone treats you like family.
