What are house calls?
House calls are a mode of medical practice in which the physician travels to meet the patient, instead of the other way around. They represent a return to a time when health care professionals routinely delivered care in the home of those they served.
While house calls may seem like a quaint or old-fashioned way to receive medical care, advancements in medical technology have made house calls a viable and effective means of delivering top-quality care outside of a traditional office setting.
What kind of services can be performed in a house call?
Dr. Ali can perform numerous medical services through house call visits. Routine diagnostic services can be delivered, allowing you to determine the source of your symptoms without having to leave the comfort of home.
A wide range of treatments can also be performed during house calls. While there will always be certain needs that can only be met in a fully equipped medical office, numerous health needs can be addressed at home.
House calls are especially important for patients who are considered high risk. This includes the elderly, men and women with a compromised immune system, and those who are too ill to safely leave home. Having access to a trusted medical provider without having to travel to a different location can make a world of difference to vulnerable populations.
