Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles finds that the more things change in modern medicine, the more the old virtues still apply
LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to choosing a physician, house calls are usually the last thing on a patient's mind for a simple reason: most of us assume that home visits from doctors have gone the way of such early 20th century relics as telephone dials and iceboxes. Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles, however, understands that the work of doctors on call today is not so different from the job of a physician 50 or 100 years ago. For all the enormous advances in medical science and technology that have saved millions of lives, medicine is still primarily about caring for individuals.
Dr. Farzam has become known as the house call, worksite, and hotel doctor Los Angeles visitors and residents turn to whenever they need outstanding care that comes to them. Whether they are out-of-town visitors who'd rather not brave some of the world's most congested traffic while ill, locals who'd prefer to wait for a doctor at home, or busy professionals who simply don't have time to deal with a lengthy visit to a doctor's office, Dr. Farzam's patients are consistently impressed with his devotion to the ancient virtues that great doctors have possessed for centuries.
Of course, many things have changed over the years in medicine on both the level of technology and in terms of the practical details of how medical care is delivered to us. Right now, of course, the most obvious change is the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more familiarly known as Obamacare. However, as many commentators have pointed out, the ACA is a law that – at least superficially – has a lot more to say about health insurance than actual health care. The effect of Obamacare on the one-on-one interaction between patients and doctors remains to be seen and, in many cases, may be largely unaffected. Regardless, at the present moment many of Dr. Farzam's patients find that visits are surprisingly affordable and that, very often, their care through House Call Doctor Los Angeles may be fully or partially covered by their insurance.
Technological and scientific developments, on the other hand, obviously have an enormous impact on how healthcare is delivered to all of us. Dr. Farzam is respected by patients for his medical knowledge thoughtfulness on many levels – including his ability to provide many medications and even some tests on the spot to save patients trips to the pharmacists or a medical lab. While doctors today can often do a lot more on behalf of patients because of advances on many fronts, the same principles of hard work, sensitivity, and compassion for patients still apply. That's why so many of Dr. Farzam's patients find themselves turning to House Call Doctor Los Angeles when health concerns arise.
