Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2016
According to an article published February 11th on The Huffington Post, Americans desire a more integrative and holistic approach to medicine in which doctors spend more time connecting with their patients in order to best support them on a whole-life approach to health. The author of the article explains that, when doctors have more time to communicate with their patients, both doctors and patients feel more connected, comfortable, and more truly cared for. The founder of House Call Doctor Los Angeles, Dr. Michael Farzam adds that, when doctors and patients cultivate a relationship based on genuine trust and understanding, all parties benefit. In fact, Dr. Farzam notes that this type of personalized care is the hallmark of his practice: house call medicine. He explains that this method of providing medical care, with the highest level of patient attention and care that it provides, may herald a resurgence of this traditional practice. Some of the other benefits associated with house call medicine include:
- Staying home – It’s a well-known fact that emergency rooms and urgent care centers are wellsprings for microbes and infections, ranging from common cold and flu viruses to MRSA. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), one in 25 patients ends up acquiring a hospital related infection that could have otherwise been prevented with a house call. What’s more, elderly patients or those with mobility issues can enjoy the comfort of staying in their own home while they receive care. Dr. Farzam notes that this can make a world of difference for whom leaving the house and getting to the hospital or standard urgent care may be more of a concern than the actual appointment.
- Low cost services – Dr. Farzam notes that hospitals have complex occupational structures in which the services of multiple receptionists and medical assistants are required. When patients enlist the assistance of a house call doctor, medical services are provided directly from doctor to patient, which significantly reduces overhead costs. As a result, all of the associated savings are passed on to the patient.
Dr. Farzam explains that house call medicine is widely acknowledged as an effective and excellent method of providing health care directly to patients.
