Concierge Medicine in the Age of Coronavirus
It’s no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has changed the way many professions operate, especially the healthcare field. As the shift in medical care moves toward telehealth and virtual visits, many patients may feel as if the change is too drastic and impersonal. Luckily, with concierge medicine, there is a happy and—more importantly—a safe medium between the traditional care received at a doctor’s office and completely virtual sessions.
Concierge medicine gives you access to first-rate medical care in the comfort of your home. Instead of visiting a medical office where there’s always the possibility of an infected person nearby, a concierge doctor visits you directly. With House Call Doctor Los Angeles, board-certified physician Dr. Michael Farzam can provide personalized care and all the basic medical treatments that are typically offered by traditional doctors’ offices.
Concierge Medicine Is No Longer an Outdated Option
While house call medicine originally became outdated because medical equipment grew too large to bring from house to house, technological advancements have since miniaturized many of the necessary appliances, making medical visits at home possible once again.
At-Home COVID-19 Testing
Dr. Michael Farzam is also able to bring rapid COVID-19 testing to you. In a time when testing is necessary but can be difficult to achieve promptly, at-home testing with House Call Doctor Los Angeles provides you with the answers you need quickly while you are safely distanced from other potentially ill individuals.
As part of our concierge medicine offerings, we offer both at-home nasal swabs that determine if you are currently infected as well as antibody testing. Nasal swab test results are available within 72 hours and the results of antibody tests are available in as little as 10 minutes.
