Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2016
An October 21 article published on U.S. News and World Report describes how patients and doctors can take some extra steps to better prepare before an appointment. Dr. Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles notes that, while there are many ways that doctors and patients can get ready for an appointment, approaching health care through house call medicine can make the medical experience significantly more effective. Dr. Farzam goes on to note that house call medicine provides patients and doctors with a variety of improvements over standard medical care, such as:
Increased Appointment Time -- Oftentimes, patients and doctors in a typical office setting are typically not allowed enough time to really tackle the subject of an appointment. Dr. Farzam notes that a typical physician may have a large number of patients to see and may rush through his or her examinations, while some patients may themselves be rushed and have less time to go over all of their symptoms, especially if traveling to the doctor’s office takes up a lot of their time. Dr. Farzam notes that in these circumstances, house call medicine allows patients and doctors to spend more time together in a more convenient setting, allowing them to communicate effectively and providing the doctor with the necessary information for the best possible diagnosis and treatment.
24 Hour Availability -- Dr. Farzam notes that, in some cases, patients may not be able to make a doctor’s appointment during regular business hours and may even put off seeking treatment for their ailments. House call medicine provides patients with the option to be seen by a doctor after regular business hours outside of an emergency room context, with its massive inconvenience and expense. Moreover, a 24 hour doctor is then able to provide patients with the necessary treatments and, in most cases, should be able to prevent the need for any actual emergency room visits.
More Accurate Diagnosis -- The Los Angeles based house call physician notes that, in a traditional health care setting, doctors may not always have all the information they need to make a completely accurate diagnosis. Dr. Farzam notes that seeing patients in their own home or work environment often provides him with important information he would likely miss in a traditional office setting.
Dr. Farzam concludes by noting that house call medicine can significantly improve doctor and patient relationships and the overall quality of the health care experience.
