By: Doctors House Calls
COVID-19 cases and deaths continue on the rise, especially among the senior population. According to the CDC, as of today Broward County has 3,459 cases and 101 deaths, Palm Beach County has 1,841 cases and 110 deaths, Martin County has 140 cases and 4 deaths, St. Lucie County has 179 cases and 8 deaths and Indian River has 81 cases and 1 dead.
Based in Stuart, Florida and serving Palm Beach, Broward and all of the Treasure Coast, Doctors House Calls team of practitioners continue visiting patients at private homes as well as assisted and independent living facilities while keeping proper protocols to ensure the safety of the patients and themselves. Last month, the practice added a telehealth component which allows patients to be seen remotely.
According to Becky Daniels, practice manager for Doctor House Calls, "we offer an old school service with a high tech component. Our phone continues ringing: patients are scared to go to the emergency room and the urgent care, they don't want to break their quarantine to go to a doctor and many primary care practitioners won't even see them! They still have medical needs and minor emergencies. Some cases can be resolved via telehealth, others can't. We still need to send out practitioners to treat certain ailments and conditions."
She added, "Our mission is to help patients during this pandemic and any other crisis. We are convinced that our mobile physician practice can help patients and communities staying healthy and stop the virus spread."
Doctor House Calls services include in-home physical examinations and on-going treatment of medical conditions, medication management and prescription refills, EKG, echo, sonogram, labs, x-rays, as well as referrals to home health, physical therapy and rehabilitation services.
