Commenting on a recent article, Dr. Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles notes that patients without paid sick leave, especially those with chronic health problems, can benefit from the time (and often even money) saved with house call healthcare services.

House call medicine can be a time and even cost-saving alternative for sick patients.

Dr. Michael Farzam notes that in-home healthcare is oftentimes an easier, more convenient and sometimes even cost-saving alternative to regular doctor visits at designated medical offices.

Patients with chronic health conditions that work without paid sick leave often face financial struggles when they schedule frequent doctor appointments during their scheduled shifts, according to an article published July 11 on NPR. House call physician Dr. Michael Farzam notes that in-home healthcare is oftentimes an easier, more convenient and sometimes even cost-saving alternative to regular doctor visits at designated medical offices. Patients, Dr. Farzam notes, oftentimes prefer house call doctor services for a variety of reasons, such as:

Comfort - By far, one of the main reasons that patients choose to utilize house call medicine for their healthcare needs is the added sense of comfort that comes with getting treatment in their own home. Dr. Farzam notes that patients can not only benefit from a doctor home visit by saving time and energy, but they are also less likely to be exposed to germs and diseases that can be found in the waiting room. When a health issue needs more immediate attention, going to urgent care in Los Angeles can also be a hassle because of the long waiting times. Dr. Farzam notes that house call medicine allows the patients to get immediate treatment in the comfort of their own home.

Personal Care - It’s no doubt that doctors and patients alike have busy schedules and keeping appointments can be a hassle. What’s even more inconvenient is the fact that, with the increasing amounts of patients that doctors are required to examine on a daily basis, patients are often rushed through their appointments and health problems that are unusually difficult to diagnose are likely to be overlooked. Dr. Farzam notes that in these circumstances, house call medicine can provide the patient with a more personal and thorough evaluation of their health.

Demanding Lifestyles - Oftentimes, patients with very demanding lifestyles and careers are unable to schedule doctor visits at a medical office during regular business hours. Dr. Farzam notes that in these cases, patients can benefit from the fact that house call doctors are able to meet them at their place of business, home or even hotel to effectively diagnose and treat any health problems at their convenience. That way, even the busiest patients can get the professional medical care they need, wherever they are, in order to continue with their busy lives.

Dr. Farzam concludes by noting that house call medicine is becoming an increasingly sought after healthcare service. Whether patients want a more personal relationship with their doctors, have extremely demanding careers and lifestyles or just prefer the convenience of utilizing house call physicians, House Call Doctor Los Angeles is a premier healthcare service that caters to the needs of every patient at any time.
