What are the advantages of house calls?
In 1930, house calls made up about 40% of all physician visits, but by 1996 that percentage dropped to just .5%. Over the past few decades, however, house calls have begun to make a comeback.
House calls are regaining popularity for a number of reasons, chief among them advantages such as:
In an increasingly busy and chaotic world, house calls make life easier. Whether you can’t transport yourself to the doctor’s office because of health issues, or you don’t have the time or means to make the trip, house calls provide you with a convenient alternative.
If you struggle with a chronic condition that makes it difficult or treacherous to leave your home, or you don’t have the support you need, you may struggle to get the care necessary to stay healthy.
House calls eliminate that problem by offering you accessibility to high-quality medical care in your own home. In addition, they allow you to spend more one-on-one time with Dr. Hussaini.
