Home Visits Q & A
What are medical home visits?
The medical team at Allied Healthcare Physicians pairs traditional values with the latest technology to offer patients quality, affordable care. That’s why they offer home health visits for added convenience to make sure no patient gets left behind.
During your appointment, a primary care physician from Allied Healthcare Physicians visits you at home, rather than you traveling to one of the Allied Healthcare Physicians offices.
What are the benefits of home visits?
The benefits of scheduling home visits instead of in-office appointments are endless. Examples include:
- No office wait times
- No travel time or costs
- Ample time with providers
- No exposure to sick patients
- Same day appointments available
If you’re unable to drive to an appointment at Allied Healthcare Physicians due to a health condition or lack of transportation, you can receive the same quality medical services as an in-office appointment from the comfort of home.
What should I expect during a home visit?
Your doctor arrives at your home during the scheduled appointment time. Your provider weighs you, checks your vitals, and reviews your medical history and symptoms. Blood can even be drawn for lab tests if necessary along with complete physical exams.
If you require treatment for a medical condition, your physician discusses options with you to find one that best matches your needs. Your doctor may recommend:
- Lifestyle changes, such as weight loss, better nutrition, or more exercise
- Dietary supplements
- Medications to manage a disease
- Physical therapy
- Massage or acupuncture
- Watchful waiting
- Further diagnostic testing if necessary
In some cases your physician might recommend attending in-office visits or complete imaging tests at their facility to optimize treatment.
Most of the time, however, your doctor can screen, diagnosis, and offer treatments right from the comfort of home. Your medical team treats you like family and takes as much time as needed to provide the best possible care.
When you’re ready to take control of your health but aren’t able to attend an in-office appointment, take advantage of home visits with Allied Healthcare Physicians. Schedule an appointment by phone or online today.
