3 Reasons Why House Call Medicine is Making a Comeback

LOS ANGELES, March 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When sick, many Americans put off taking a trip to the doctor's office. There are a variety of reasons people would avoid heading in to a clinic, primary physician, or urgent care facility unless absolutely necessary. Some of them are financial, and some are strictly an attempt to avoid hassle. Traveling to the doctor takes precious time and money out of one's day, and, what's worse, most of that time is spent sitting in a waiting room or in busy LA traffic. In most cases, the actual time spent in front of the doctor is only 10-15 minutes of the multiple hours spent in the overall process. It's not surprising then that house call medicine is making a comeback for people who would rather avoid the process entirely while still receiving outstanding treatment options. Board Certified Physicians like Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles provide a convenient alternative to the clinic in the form of house call medicine. These are 3 reasons why:

1) Ultimate Convenience—Let's face it: heading to the doctor's office, clinic, or urgent care center is pretty inconvenient. It involves long wait times and transportation woes. Such headaches are never fun, but, for someone who's feeling ill, they're one of the last things they should have to deal with. House call medicine cuts out all the worst parts of seeing the doctor all at once. Instead of having to deal with impersonal waiting rooms, a patient can enjoy the comfort of their own home as the appointment approaches. Also, arranging transportation is obviously no longer a concern. Patients simply arrange the time, around their own schedule, and relax until the doctor arrives.

2) Time Saver—Another reason why avoiding urgent care for Los Angeles residents is becoming increasingly common is because it simply takes too much time. A visit to an urgent care facility can take up most of a work day once commutes and wait times are taken into account. For many, taking an entire day off work to seek care just isn't practical. Because a house call doctor eliminates the most time consuming aspects of an appointment, patients are able to receive the treatment they need through a much quicker process, and can therefore still salvage most of their day to fulfil their obligations.

3) Individual Attention—A house call is very much a one on one experience. Unlike medical centers in which doctors must see patient after patient in rapid succession, a house call doctor can take the time for a closer, more careful and thorough evaluation. Such an evaluation is valuable, particularly from an expert, board certified physician like Dr. Farzam.

Dr. Farzam and House Call Doctor Los Angeles provide an incredibly popular service with house call medicine in the LA area. For more information please call 310-849-7991 or visit
