At-Home Doctor Visits

Physician home visits are a convenient way of addressing medical issues without having to leave the house. These essential services can help people who are bedridden, have difficulty walking or transferring, or simply require a more convenient option for treating their medical problems. Kinkaid Private Care lets you meet with a private physician on a schedule that works for you and provides an extensive suite of concierge medical services.

What Is a Physician House Call

Up until the mid-20th century, physician home visits were the norm for medical practitioners. When people became ill or required medical attention, a home doctor was sent for and attended their patient inside their residence. With medical insurance becoming increasingly popular and hospitals becoming commonplace, doctors became focused on seeing large volumes of patients daily and moved their medical practices to hospitals or private offices.

At-home visits with a private physician restore the attention to detail and personal connection that gets lost in hospitals serving thousands of patients. At private clinics,  a physician sees twenty patients a day on average, and 80% report being unable to accept new patients without becoming overextended.

Receiving medical services from a house call doctor means your physician won’t be pressured to get you in and out quickly. They can take the time necessary to appropriately address all your medical concerns, all from the comfort of your own home.

Choosing a Home Doctor

The most common reasons for choosing a home doctor are convenience and the fast availability of appointment times. When dealing with acute illness, nearly everyone wants to receive care as soon as possible. At a hospital or outpatient medical clinic, appointments for “as soon as possible” often means waiting for days or weeks, or you can spend hours waiting to receive care at an emergency room.

Choosing a home doctor in Los Angeles can mean receiving quality in-person treatment often within the hour, without needing to sit in crowded waiting rooms or long stays in hospital beds. A recent survey found that 94.2% of patients who received a physician house call would do so again, indicating an extremely high level of satisfaction from physician home visits.

Effectiveness of At-Home Care

Physician home visits can significantly reduce medical costs and worries for you or your loved ones. While an at-home doctor visit may cost more than a typical office visit, it can eliminate costs such as specialized transportation or lost productivity and can serve to prevent expensive trips to the emergency room.

In elderly patients, finding treatment with an at-home provider resulted in a 65% reduction in days spent in a hospital and a 50% reduction in total medical costs. This can provide substantial stress relief for both the patient and families when having your medical needs attended to.

What Home Medical Services are Available?

With advancing medical technologies, many of the medical tests and equipment can now be brought by your physician to your house, minimizing the need for outpatient procedures or expensive trips to the emergency room. With a house call doctor, Los Angeles residents can receive a variety of medical services, including:

  • Medication Prescription
  • Ordering labs and imaging
  • Medical diagnostic services
  • Routine physicals and medical examinations
  • Vaccine administration

Even complex medical procedures, such as X-rays, EKGs, or blood draws, can be performed from the comfort of your own home. Advances in medical technology have made these treatments portable, safe, and effective when administered under the care of one of our trained medical providers. Our team brings a variety of specialized medical equipment with them for each house call, ensuring that the full scope of your medical needs can be met.
