A relic from the medical past — the house call — is a valuable tool in the the 21st century medical bag, and it is a service that I genuinely enjoy providing for patients who need or want me to visit them outside of my office - home, hotel or even hospital bed.
With today's technology, most of what I can do in the office can be done at the bedside so I can accomplish a lot with a home visit. Home visits are especially helpful for people who have been recently discharged from a hospital or have significant mobility issues, making it very difficult for them to see me....in that case, I come to see them.
Reasons that people request house calls are varied, but generally fall into a one of these categories:
Feeling ill and would prefer to be seen at home
Mobility issues that make it a challenge to travel
Travelers who get sick and would prefer to stay in their hotel room
Prefer the convenience and personalized care of a home visit
While I hope you don't need me to come to your home, please don't hesitate to contact me if you do.
