The practice of making a house call is almost as old as medicine itself. Simply put, a house call brings medical care and attention to your front door, leaving you more time for rest and recovery, and all without the hassle of leaving your home. This can be especially meaningful when patients cannot make it to a doctor’s office for any reason. When you are physically unable or immobile for whatever reason, there is certain comfort in knowing Dr. Newman will come to you.
There are other advantages, as well, to having Dr. Newman come out to your location for a physician house call. It is not only efficient but time saving and as we offer package deals, there are no hidden costs. If you are a business owner or employer, Dr. Newman can come to your work site and examine patients at work without losing any work hours. We can treat multiple employees at once and offer immunizations, such as Flu shots, and we also treat illnesses or work related injuries. If you are in Los Angeles on a business trip or on vacation, requesting a house call saves you precious time so you can focus on what matters most to you.
Why Does Dr. Newman See Patients Away from his Center?
There are many scenarios where a house call can be the better option for a patient. There comes an age when factors such as travel and leaving the comforts of one’s home become a real issue. A house call offers an older patient the benefit of remaining at home and can be an alternative to the care one may receive at a nursing home. Caring for a patient at home offers Dr. Newman the advantage of seeing how the patient is doing in their living environment and can add a surprisingly fresh touch of personal care to whatever course of treatment is being laid out. House calls also offer a level of privacy and ease that is unmatched in a regular medical environment. Whatever the reason may be, in-house physician care may be the right option for you.
What can I Expect During an In-House Appointment?
The actual consultation with the Doctor will be very similar to a visit at American Urgent Care Center. Dr. Newman will evaluate your condition, check vitals, including heart rate and blood pressure and conduct a general examination. If necessary, Dr. Newman may take blood samples and can even request for you to undergo an X-Ray at the American Urgent Care Center. Dr. Newman will spend time listening to your concerns and providing counseling for your particular needs.
