Mobile Doctors® specializes in providing physician home care and home procedures for patients requiring regular home care services or who have physical or mental conditions which inhibit their ability to visit the doctor without assistance. Our physicians are state-licensed and most have board certifications in their physician specialties.
Our practice focuses on primary care/internal medicine, podiatry, and diagnostic testing. Our goal is to provide high quality, responsive in-home health care to stabilize patients, improve their health, manage their medications, and reduce hospitalizations and ER visits. We also coordinate patient care with home health agencies, durable medical equipment providers, hospitals, and other medical professionals.
Some of the most common diagnoses and conditions we manage include:
All billing is done directly with Medicare Part B or most other insurance companies. The patient may be responsible for co-pays or deductibles depending on their coverage.
The core of our services is primary in-home care and internal medicine. Our physicians treat common elderly conditions on a daily basis, including:
If you or your family member requires in home care and has a relationship with a primary care physician, Mobile Doctors® will keep your previous primary care physician aware of the any changes in treatment or health status. In such situations, the previous physician often continues to take care of the patient if hospitalization is needed. If the patient has no previous physician and needs to go into the hospital, Mobile Doctors® will communicate with the hospital physician who cares for the patient.
Podiatrists are physicians who specialize in foot care and are qualified and licensed to provide podiatry procedures.
Many of our patients are bedridden, have poor vision or poor feeling in their feet and are unaware of their foot care issues and unable to address them.
Our podiatry procedures and foot care services range from toenail care and fitting for special shoes, to treating wounds on the foot and lower extremities. Podiatrists are trained in the treatment of these wounds, including sharp debridement and local wound care, and have extensive experience caring for the elderly.
With the advent of mobile diagnostics, diagnostic testing at home is becoming more and more prevalent. Tests that can be performed in the home include:
Echocardiogram tests are performed to determine cardiovascular function, especially for patients with congestive heart failure or other chronic heart conditions. After testing, we receive a written report from a Board certified cardiologist which is reviewed by our physician for treatment options.
If a patient requires hospitalization, a nursing home, or skilled nursing in a facility, we will work with the patient and family to coordinate the move, but will not follow the patient to the facility. Our wide coverage area and number of facilities inhibits our ability to meets the needs of both the patient preferences and the hospital/nursing home staffing. Depending on the area, we do have relationships with hospitalist programs and can coordinate care with their staff.
We will relay preferences, coordinate care, send records, and work with discharge planning to transition the patient back to their home.
With our long history in adult and elderly home care, we can also help patients with other care options provided by home health skilled nursing or other companies specializing in home care. This includes community based resources, homemaker services, and possibly assisted/supportive living communities.
