Why a home visit doctor?

It is nice to get out of the office, see people in their own homes and keep them out of the Emergency Department. You never know what the next case will be and we actually see more acute illnesses than in a standard GP practice. Patients are extremely appreciative of the service that you provide which makes every shift rewarding.
