Emergency room visits can be very costly and time consuming. In the event of a real emergency where a person’s life is danger then the best available option is to either call for an ambulance, dial 911, or in the event you cannot make a phone call then drive the individual to the closest hospital emergency room. If the emergency is not life threatening then the care required is called “urgent care”.
The house call doctors and physicians’ assistants that work at OnCallCare are the preferable alternative to an emergency room visit when someone is in need of urgent medical care. A house call doctor for emergency or urgent care is preferable to an emergency room visit for a variety of reasons.
No Waiting Room
An on-call house call doctor from OnCallCare comes to your home or place or residence to provide patients with professional urgent care and emergency medical care. When a person in need of urgent care visits a hospital emergency room, they are usually forced to wait in an often times crowded and busy waiting room. It’s not uncommon to make an emergency room visit for one issue only to come into contact additional issues from other people waiting in the waiting area. If you are in need of urgent medical care and not excited about the idea of sitting in a hospital emergency room waiting room then please give us a call at one of our four convenient locations.
Since late 2019 the entire world has been afflicted by a pandemic commonly known as COVID-19. COVID is a highly transmissible disease from person to person and has spread throughout the United States. Because of this pandemic, hospital emergency rooms have been overrun with COVID patients. The volume of people flooding into emergency rooms complicates things in two ways. The first is that it makes it so that individuals seeking urgent care are sometimes forced to wait an exorbitant amount of time to see a doctor or a physician. The second is that the odds of going to a hospital emergency room for non-covid related urgent care and contacting COVID while there is much higher than the alternative. Having a house call doctor come to your house to provide urgent medical care is not only a more convenient alternative, but also a much safer alternative. For individuals considered to be in the high risk groups for COVID, a house call doctor or physician assistant coming to your home to provide professional medical care should be the only option. If you or someone you know is in need of urgent medical care then give OnCallCare a call and let one of our house call doctors or physician assistants come provide you with the urgent medical care you deserve in the safety and convenience of your own home.
Hospital emergency rooms can be an intrusive place. We have all had that experience where we are sitting in a waiting room when the coughing and sneezing person next to you decides to have a conversation. The conversation usually starts off with “What are you here for”? Sometimes the other patients in the waiting room can be more probing than the actual doctors. By choosing to receive urgent medical care via a house call doctor from OnCallCare you can bypass all the patient probing and questions associated with a hospital and receive the same quality care in the privacy of your own home.
Last but not least, choosing to utilize the services of OnCallCare is far more convenient than having to physically go to a hospital emergency room for urgent medical care. The highly trained and experienced house call doctors and physician assistants at OnCallCare will come to your house and on your schedule to provide you with individual, private and quality medical care in your home. House call doctors and physican assistants at minimum provide the same quality medical care and, in most cases, provide superior quality medical care but in the privacy of your own home.
If you or someone you know is in need of some form of medical care whether it be a minor emergency, urgent care, or basic medical attention, then choose the superior alternative. Choose the house call professionals at OnCallCare to provide you with the absolute best medical care in the privacy, comfort and convenience of your own home.
