There are multiple reasons why a patient would benefit from the option to have a physician come to their home.
- Elder Care: 80% of older adults suffer from chronic conditions. Some of these conditions may make it difficult for older patients to be transported to hospitals or clinics.
- Mobility Concerns: Patients with conditions such as diabetes, cancer, lung disease, heart disease, might suffer from impaired mobility that makes it difficult to access consistent care.
- Compromised Immune System: Those with compromised immunity may not be able to risk potential contamination from exposing themselves to an environment where contagious diseases are prevalent.
Talk to your primary care provider to learn more or receive a referral. They can help determine if you qualify for this service.
