LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An October 30 article in Forbes discusses
Dr. Farzam says that house call doctors' access to a patient in their home or work environment can provide information about what is going on in a patient's life, without the physician having to ask a lot of questions. For example, many men in particular might not even think of mentioning that they have lost a loved one when they go to a doctor with a health complaint. Moreover, many patients of all genders might not think to mention negative events in their lives because they might not think it's relevant. Dr. Farzam mentions that people especially tend to downplay the seriousness of a death of a pet, for example, and would never think of making a point of mentioning it when seeing a doctor. However, the internist says, a physician might see a picture of person or a pet who doesn't appear to be around, ask about it, and find out what's happened. Knowing that the patient has recently endured the loss of a beloved family member can lead to a more correct diagnosis, says Dr. Farzam. He notes that while some people are just naturally sloppy, especially when they're not feeling well, a seriously unkempt home can also be a warning sign of depression. He notes that a house call doctor also has to time to ask questions that can help ascertain the nature of a situation.
Of course, add Dr. Farzam, the reasons most patients prefer house call medicine has mostly to do with convenience, but he says that can also be important. Removing stressful trips to a doctor's office, followed by an unpleasant hour or two waiting in a standard urgent care or emergency room, can help improve recovery by avoiding added stress, says the doctor.
