The doctor is in and they will see you…in your home! While we often associate at-home doctor’s visits as a thing of the past, Village Primary Care Providers is bringing back in-home visits because they offer a host of advantages and conveniences for our patients. We have many elderly patients and those with chronic and progressive diseases that impact mobility and a patient’s ability to get to their doctor’s appointments; however, it’s still important for our patients to get routine checkups and medical care they need throughout the year. This is where in-home visits become beneficial.
House Calls are Making a Comeback
Instead of having to get ready and drive to our office, the doctors at Village Primary Care Providers make house calls. Now you can get the same trusted medical care that you receive from our office without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.
Since you are at home you may feel more at ease during your doctor’s appointment. You don’t have to worry about forgetting important medications or needing to bring anything with you. Plus, this is the perfect time to ask us any questions you might have about your home and lifestyle. Our doctors can see what foods you keep in your fridge or examine the supplements you have in your bathroom cabinet to provide advice and education that can promote better health and wellbeing for our patients.
If you’ve ever felt rushed during a regular doctor’s visit, an in-home visit can often provide you and your family with ample time to speak with a doctor. After all, we have to carve out enough time to get to and from your home as well as provide you with care. Plus, you don’t have to worry about sitting in the waiting room for your appointment. You can simply take it easy at home and we’ll come to you.
House calls with our team of doctors can be beneficial for our seniors, families and homebound patients. Of course, anyone can benefit from in-home visits. Most non-urgent visits can be done from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Home visits may even be covered by your health insurance.
If you would like to learn more about in-home visits, pricing and whether a house call is appropriate for you or your family, call Village Primary Care Providers at (262) 875-4892 to learn more or to schedule an in-home checkup.
