LOS ANGELES, Oct. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An October 16 article in The Atlantic
Dr. Farzam notes that one benefit of taking advantage of house call doctors is that they are able to provide a more individualized approach than physicians who work as part of standard medical groups. Indeed, being able to visit patients in their homes or offices can often yield insights that can make an important difference. For example, a doctor visiting a home might find out details about a person's family history that, while it might not relate to historical oppression, might well suggest genetic predispositions to certain types of illnesses. Or, says Dr. Farzam, it may be that personal habits or household hazards that might not come up in standard consultation can be gleaned come from a home visit. For example, patients may be embarrassed to admit to smoking but the smell of tobacco smoke is extremely difficult to hide, says the doctor.
There are many syndromes that are extremely difficult for standard doctors to diagnose that may be related to an individual's environment or personal habits, says Dr. Farzam. A house call doctor is able to visit an individual's personal space and take the time to explore their entire situation in a way that simply cannot be replicated in an ordinary office visit, he adds. While skeptics might have serious questions about certain aspects of functional and holistic medicine, there's no question that being able to learn more about a patient's personal life and family history can yield enormous medical benefits that are beneficial from any point of view.
