Are you thinking about having visiting physician services come to your home in New Jersey? If so, there is a lot to know about receiving primary care at home. With these services, you do not have to deal with all of the nuisances of going to the doctor: transportation, long wait times, rushed visits. You can stay in the comfort of your home and avoid added stress on your mental or physical health.
VNA Health Group joined forces with Visiting Physician Services in NJ in 2015 to offer a better quality of care to our clients. You have many options available to you, which we will cover below.
Who are Visiting Physicians For?
We recommend having a visiting physician in NJ if you have trouble getting to the doctor, are taking several medications and have multiple chronic conditions. It makes it easier to have the doctor come to you!
We also recommend visiting physician services if you have had a recent hospitalization, or if you make frequent trips to the ER. With so many germs and viruses in health care settings, it’s safer to stay in your home and reduce your risk of infection.
What Types of Care Do Visiting Physicians Provide?
It’s important that our visiting doctors can provide you with the right level of care. Otherwise, you can end up wasting time and having to seek additional medical attention. The good news is that our doctors can treat most ailments and illnesses in the home thanks to advanced technology.
The visiting physicians from VNA Health Group are board-certified doctors that specialize in family practice and/or internal medicine. They have extensive experience caring for adult and geriatric patients. We also have a great team of medical staff that includes board-certified physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
Our physicians can provide the following care at home:
- Physical examination
- Nutritional assessment
