How to protect yourself and your family. Some questions to ask.
How to recognize high-quality house call medical groups.
Physicians and Medical Groups specializing in house calls have become available to geriatric patients. This increase in your Medicare benefits was a result of years of efforts by the American Academy of Home Care Physicians.
If you are unable to visit your own physician, house call physicians who come to your home can provide consultations to your doctor or serve as your private doctor. Because of changes in medical technology, a physician can come to your home with portable medical equipment and provide medical care in the home.
