LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — In the first half of the 20th century, house calls accounted for a very significant percentage of meetings between doctors and patients. By the early 1970’s, however, the  number of home medical visits had dropped to around one percent and for decades house calls went the way of telegrams and rotary phones, relics of a bygone era. While there once were a variety of legitimate reasons why centralized hospitals drove house call doctors toward near extinction, Michael Farzam MD is proving that, with modern technology, patients can get the same high quality care they expect from a doctor’s office in the comfort of their own home. Here’s why:

  1. Modern Efficiency – The 20th century American economy was all about efficiency, industrialism, and growth. It was also when health insurance become a popular product in the American economy and a popular incentive for companies to offer when hiring employees. This led to a huge boost in demand for medical services, forcing doctors to adjust their strategy in order to treat a large volume of patients. Large, centralized hospitals and doctor’s offices became primarily focused on speed and efficiency and doctors no longer felt that traveling to patients’ homes was a good use of their time. Now, such modern technology as electronic patient records and wireless scheduling apps allow physicians like Dr. Farzam to successfully treat a reasonable number of patients with both diligence and efficiency.
  2. Modern Medical Breakthroughs – Another thing that led to both the centralization of medical care and the increase in the demand for it was the fact that it wasn’t really until the mid-20th century that hospitals or urgent care treatment became truly modern. Before the 1940s and 1950s, and such advances as the development of antibiotics, a doctor’s ability to help a sick patient was often fairly minimal. In a very real sense, medical tools were so limited that it was plausible at the time for doctors to carry everything they had to treat patients with them in a single black leather bag. With the development of blood tests, x-rays, and later ultrasounds, doctors realized that they could provide patients with much better medical care at hospitals where these items were kept. But, with newly created smaller, mobile versions of these technologies, house call physicians like Dr. Farzam can now easily bring these revolutionary tools to a patient’s home. With House Call Doctor Los Angeles, highly advanced medicine has gone mobile.

Thanks to modern technology and innovators like Dr. Farzam, what was thought by many to be a lost profession is making a comeback in Los Angeles and beyond. Dr. Farzam has been serving Los Angeles for over 10 years, and has amassed a number of glowing doctor testimonials from patients who were more than impressed with the care and convenience he provides. If you or a loved one can benefit from the medical care of an experienced, board certified doctor in the convenience of your home, office, or hotel room, please call 310-849-7991 or visit www.housecalldoctorla.com today.

  1. Good evening,
    In starting my own house calls direct primary care practice, I found many other physicians realizing the beauty of house calls once again. I agree completely with the article and look forward to more.
    Besides my own practice, I will mention another new house calls practice in nearby Johnson City, TN called Black Bag Doc. Dr. Clark is a friend who seems to be growing his practice with this old fashioned medicine.

    Blessings,
