Urgent Care From Santa Monica to Beverly Hills to North Hollywood
It may seem that the day of the house call has come and gone, but in fact there still are doctors who perform such services. There are many reasons why patients might prefer to receive urgent care in the privacy and comfort of their own Brentwood home or office. House call physicians can meet these diverse needs in ways that simply aren't possible when patients have to travel to the doctor's office in order to receive medical services.
Advantages of House Call Physicians
The most obvious advantage of having a doctor come to see you, instead of the other way around, is that it means you don't have to leave the house. This benefit however, is more profound than it seems. Illness and urgent care emergencies often mean the patient is in poor condition to face driving, especially West Hollywood traffic jams. Some more urgent emergencies may render the patient incapable of driving at all. Some people may be able to get a friend or relative to help them get from Bel Air all the way to the nearest walk in clinic, but we’re here for those who cannot. We can make urgent care house calls to Santa Monica at all hours of the night.
Staying at home also means that you or your child can rest in bed instead of having to sit up in a doctor's waiting room. This too is more important than it may seem at first, as a recent case in Marina Del Rey, California reveals. In that case, three children contracted measles while in the urgent care waiting room; they had been exposed to a carrier who was waiting his turn to see the physician. While this is not the most common scenario, it is something to keep in mind. Having a physician come to your Brentwood home means you will minimize exposure to other urgent care patients and potential diseases.
Urgent Care house calls also offer an important alternative to Los Angeles emergency room. Parents are all too aware of the problems and expenses that can arise when a child falls ill or has an accident during a weekend. With the doctor's office and even the local clinic closed for business, there is frequently no alternative except the hospital emergency room. This not only involves expenses, sometimes ones that an insurance company refuses to reimburse, but usually also entails a long, uncomfortable wait. Delays of several hours are standard in Hollywood and Los Angeles emergency rooms.
Urgent care specialist Dr. Farzam is available on the weekends as well as weekdays. Weekend walkin clinic care can be administered on your time table with more comfort and convenience than a walk in clinic has to offer. He is also available for evening and late night house calls or walk in patients from Pacific Palisades to Torrance.
Seeing a doctor in your own Beverly Hills home guarantees your privacy. Discussing medical issues can involve disclosing highly personal information and Dr. Farzam is well equipped to handle clientele of any background suffering from any condition. Many people are far more comfortable discussing medical matters when in a familiar environment rather than the sterile atmosphere of a walk in clinic.
House Can Mean Office
The term "house call physician" is slightly misleading since Dr. Farzam is perfectly willing to see patients in hotel rooms, offices, and studios. Busy working people who need to consult a doctor can do so without losing productive time on the job. Walk in urgent care services for L.A. travelers and Hollywood vacationers as well as local Sherman Oaks residents.

Treating clients from all over the West Los Angeles area, Dr. Farzam will visit his patients in their home for almost any medical emergency. Just like the old Doc-in-a-Box quick medical care that has transcended into walk in clinics, pharmacies, and big urgent care centers.
