No.

"Doctors making Housecalls" advertises on the radio a lot. I don't think its a service I would use though.

I don't know of any people dr's, but there is a vet in my area that does house calls. It's not a bad idea, cause she advertises that your pet feels "right at home" during the visit.... there's no anxiety trip in the car etc...

Yes, my father has been known to do them from time to time. It depends on the patient though.

I know a couple that would for long time patients or friends.. And I know another one who is basically a traveling dr and ONLY makes house calls, he doesn't have an office really..

We have a health center consortium of 11 centers in 3 counties most of which are very rural -in the centers in the outer most regions there are MDs & PAs who do house visits on a regular schedule for the home-bound-especially our frail elders who have a difficult time getting out-

mmmm no I dont know of any but I have heard of vets that make house calls because of the stress that it puts on animals to take them to the office

My Grandparents Doctor makes housecalls, only to his elderly patients or mothers to be on bedrest.

There are a couple of doctors in my grandparents area that work with elderly (geriatricians) that do housecalls with homebound elders. My grandma signed up with that practice and her doctor made a house call when she was recovering from surgery. I was surprised even though I used to work with an elder service agency in that city because my grandma usually was able to get a ride if needed, plus she lives 20-30 minutes from the practice!

My family doc did back home, but he always did when we were kids also, he prefers you come to the practise though, if you can.
Here, not a chance, you can't even get him to come in for an early or late appointment!
My vet however, will happily make a home visit

A Memphis doctor make a housecall? Nope, not if their lives depended on it lol. They'd rather you die on the way to the ER than go to your house and help you . I hope you have better luck in your city though. As for mine, i'm out of luck if i ever need a housecall
