Housecall Doctors Medical Group is introducing a new option for our patients and clinicians to utilize during this time. We understand some of the concern for face to face visits, and although our first priority will be to complete a visit in person, we want to provide the option for Telemedicine visits as another way to expand access to care during this time. This will revolutionize senior’s ability to get care and we are excited to continue to innovate with our service offerings. Please continue to check this page for more information on this service as it develops

We want to encourage any and all seniors to practice social distancing during this crucial time. In an effort to do so, we want to offer our services for any senior who is in need of an appointment with their primary care physician but is fearful of waiting rooms, large human interactions and virus exposure. This is offered to those who are 65+, have no signs or symptoms of COVID19, but need a visit for active evaluation of clinical issues.
Once the pandemic has ended, we will share information with primary care doctors and will communicate directly with patients, families and primary care physicians to facilitate a prompt return to office based care.
We are aware that seniors are in the high risk category and want to be sure we do everything we can to support them and their ongoing care during this time. If you or any seniors you know are in need of intermittent housecall visits so they can practice social distancing, or if you have any questions regarding insurance coverage for our visits, please reach out to our office at: (800) 964- 4364 and we will be happy to help!
