A 24 Hour Doctor You Can Count On
A 24 hour doctor can be hard to find, which can be scary when you’re sick or have just suffered a minor but painful injury and it’s the middle of the night. Board-certified internist Dr. Michael Farzam and House Call Doctor Los Angeles are available at all hours, every day of the week. While emergency rooms are always an option, the difference is that we can see patients in the comfort of their own homes, offices, or other locations of their choosing. Emergency rooms and urgent care centers tend to be crowded, exposing waiting patients to a variety of other pathogens in an always-stressful environment.
Some patients may assume that house call doctors are a quaint relic of the early-to-mid 20th-century, but this could not be further from the truth. In fact, the technology that made modern medicine so much more effective in the 20th century has largely become portable in the 21st century. Thanks to ongoing progress in miniaturization, mobile doctors are back in the mainstream.
The ability to see a doctor while at home, work, or another location lessens the burden of having to receive medical care – patients can work while they wait for the doctor to arrive, and then resume their routine once the visit is over without having to travel back to work or home from a clinic or hospital. Nor is it excessively costly; in fact, depending on your insurance, a visit with Dr. Farzam and House Call Doctors Los Angeles can be considerably less expensive than a trip to the emergency room.
