In a recent article published January 17th on The Daily Progress, the author highlights the advantages of a medical school program which pairs together medical students and chronically ill patients as a way of fostering empathy and understanding between them. Dr. Michael Farzam- who has been practicing medicine in Los Angeles for over a decade - notes that, in the age of long wait times and short appointments, wisdom and empathy are critical traits that patients look for in a physician, but seldom encounter. He notes that when doctors exhibit these traits, patients feel more cared for. The doctor explains that his brand of house call medicine, with the unparalleled level of care and patient attention that it provides, may be the saving grace of the modern medicine for a great many patients. Some of the additional benefits associated with this less common type of medical practice include:
Comfort of Staying Home – The doctor explains that, especially for elderly patients and those with mobility issues, house calls may be the best way to receive medical attention. Despite the slow decline of house calls performed by doctors over the past decades, addressing the needs of patients with mobility issues is perhaps the number one reason as to why this practice is still in place. Additionally, for those away from home but staying in the Los Angeles area, house call doctors are able to visit patients in their hotel rooms.
More Personalized Care – Having a physician actually visit a patient’s home, Dr. Farzam explains, can be beneficial in a number of ways that many rarely take into account. One of these advantages is that house call patients tend to feel more comforted, cared for, and are more likely to comply with a doctor's instructions. Furthermore, Dr. Farzam explains that being in a person’s home can give a doctor a more detailed perspective regarding how a patient’s lifestyle and living situation may factor into their health, providing a wealth of information that most patients would never think to mention. The more information a doctor has at hand, the more likely he or she can help limit a patient’s future medical problems.
Through his work with House Call Doctor Los Angeles, Dr. Farzam explains that he has proven house call medicine to be an effective and highly preferred method of delivering health care to patients, and he looks forward to witnessing the tradition’s continued resurgence.
