What are home visits?
Home visits describe medical care that comes to you. Many years ago, house calls (now known as home visits) were quite common. Medical care providers would go directly to their patients’ homes and provide the care they needed.
Over time, urgent care centers grew more common and home visits less so. Prestige Clinicians LLC, however, recognizes that many patients just don’t have the time, ability, or desire to come into the office, so they’re bringing home visits back.
The team believes that good health doesn’t have to be inconvenient, so they bring the medical care to you.
When might I need home visits?
Home visits can serve your family’s needs in a variety of circumstances. Some common reasons that you might opt for home visits include:
- Palliative care for serious illnesses
- Acute care for minor injuries and illnesses like cold and flu
- Physical exams
- Chronic disease management
- Wound care
- Taking blood, urine, and other samples for lab testing
- Medication renewals
From pediatric to geriatric patients, home visits can be a great shortcut to both routine and urgent medical care.
Home visits are ideal for acute and chronic injuries, but they aren’t right for emergencies. If you need certain types of urgent care, you may need to come into the office, where the team has access to the full spectrum of injury and illness treatments.
Of course, if you have a life-threatening injury or illness of any kind, visit the emergency room for immediate medical attention.
What are the advantages of home visits?
One of the biggest advantages of home visits is convenience. There’s no need to arrange child care, travel to and from the office, and sit in a waiting room.
Leaving the house when you’re feeling bad can be a real challenge, and home visits allow you to avoid it completely. You can avoid being out in the community and conserve your energy while still receiving the medical attention you need to get better.
Home visits offer a level of convenience you just can’t beat. To learn more about home visits or schedule your appointment, call the office nearest you, or click on the provided booking tool now.
