LOS ANGELES, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Making an appointment to see a primary care physician often means blocking out an entire day to make a trip to that office. Not only that, patients often have to spend more than an hour in a cramped waiting room, only to have a 15-minute appointment where they spend more time talking to the doctor's staff rather than the doctor himself. However, with concierge medicine in Los Angeles, patients don't even have to leave the comfort and privacy of their own homes to get the care they need, nor do they need to waste time in a packed waiting room and be subjected to contagious patients. House Call Doctor Los Angeles, a direct primary care medical service, turns back the clock to where doctors made house calls.
In fact, patients today have more freedom than ever when it comes to getting the care they need, even if it's 11 p.m. on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. As a 24-hour doctor, board-certified internist Dr. Michael Farzam, founder and CEO of House Call Doctor Los Angeles, provides a much-needed mobile healthcare service in the Greater Los Angeles area. Dr. Farzam makes house calls, visits patients' worksite, and even provides services as a hotel doctor, all while spending an average of 45 minutes on each appointment.
Dr. Farzam says that the direct primary care model has many advantages, especially for the patient who would rather not leave the comfort and privacy of their own home for medical attention.
"I became a house call doctor because I wanted to provide more personalized service to my patients," said Dr. Farzam, who clarified that not only the well-to-do seek out his house call services. "I personally believe that anyone can benefit from a house call service; house call doctors not only save a patient time, but are affordable and are reimbursed by most insurance plans and can many times save trips to the emergency room and hospitalizations."
From the time the patient places a call to House Call Doctor Los Angeles, Dr. Farzam usually arrives within an hour, no matter where they are in the Greater Los Angeles area. The visit also includes a follow-up call the next day, just to make sure that the patient is still on track to recovery. This is a stark contrast to a healthcare clinic, which is often too hurried with new patients to bother with patients who were there previously. Instead of getting lost in the shuffle, Dr. Farzam's patients receive the individualized care and attention they need without having to be subjected to cramped waiting rooms, short appointments, and having to take time off work while losing wages just to see the doctor.
House Call Doctor Los Angeles, led by Dr. Farzam, is able to give you prompt and effective medical attention when you need it most.
