Commenting on the recent article, the founder of House Call Doctor Los Angeles explains that the soaring costs of urgent care are motivating patients to seek out alternative options such as house call medicine.

For any other type of illness or injury, house call medicine is widely acknowledged as an effective and excellent method of providing health care directly to patients.

Dr. Farzam notes that his service provides medical care to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; so if a child falls ill during the weekend or a holiday, for example, parents can be certain that urgent care is available.

According to an article published February 22nd on KARE, many urgent medical care facilities are branded to appear budget conscious, but the costs of their services may sometimes be as high as using an emergency room. Commenting on this article, Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles explains that in many situations it may well be a better and also a more affordable option to schedule an appointment with a house call doctor, who is typically able to see patients within one or two hours of the call. What’s more, Dr. Farzam notes that his service provides medical care to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; so if a child falls ill during the weekend or a holiday, for example, parents can be certain that urgent care is available. House call medicine affords the patient the luxury of waiting for and consulting the doctor in the comfort of his or her own home, eliminating the need to wait in heavily populated emergency rooms, where delays of as much as several hours are all too common. Dr. Farzam, who has been practicing this style of medicine for over a decade, explains some of the additional benefits of house call medicine.

  • Budget conscious – Hospitals and emergency rooms are governed by complex occupational structures which involve the services of multiple receptionists, nurses, and medical assistants, driving up the price of medical care, Dr. Farzam notes. When patients enlist the services of a house call doctor, doctors directly provide medical care to the patient, which significantly reduces excess costs. It is in this way that patients may ultimately pay significantly less using this service than visiting their emergency room or hospital, says Dr. Farzam.
  • Privacy and comfort – When feeling under the weather, one of the least inspiring ideas possible is taking a trip to the doctor’s office, Dr. Farzam notes. Indeed, particularly when chronic pain or mobility issues are a concern, the prospect of getting oneself and/or loved ones to the medical center or hospital can be more stressful than the appointment itself. What’s more, Dr. Farzam explains that he fully understands that for all kinds of reasons, many people prefer not stepping out into public, particularly when not feeling or looking their best. Dr. Farzam notes he is very sympathetic to patients’ privacy concerns when it comes to issues as personal as one’s health care.

Dr. Farzam explains that, in the event of a life-threatening injury or emergency, it is always advised to dial 9-1-1. For any other type of illness or injury, house call medicine is widely acknowledged as an effective and excellent method of providing health care directly to patients.
