LOS ANGELES, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For those who aren't comfortable with the crowds and impersonal, rushed medical care found at the average walk in clinic in Los Angeles, Dr. Michael Farzam and his team at House Call Doctor Los Angeles offer a welcome alternative that's also saving patients money in numerous ways. As CEO and founder of the one-of-a-kind practice, Dr. Farzam stands out among other home visit doctors. The compassionate professional is committed to providing urgent care and concierge medicine to Southern California patients in the comfort of their own homes that stands far above the care experienced at any common medical clinic in Los Angeles and is far less costly than emergency room visits or simply ignoring medical problems That's why it's heartening to see that after more than a decade in practice, the home care philosophy of the board-certified internist is beginning to spread throughout the U.S.

"If you are giving (patients) better care, and you are keeping them out of the hospital, and you are treating them in their homes, which is best, it really could save millions, if not up into the billions," says Terri Hobbs, Executive Director of Housecall Providers. Currently part of a 3-year federal demonstration project designed to illustrate how the house call model could save millions of dollars for Medicare, Housecall Providers is a non-profit organization based in Portland Oregon. Hobbs further elaborates on the savings provided by house call doctors, explaining that the average cost of a homebound patient's care is about $27,000 a year. Yet, once house calls start, that cost drops to $7,000.

It's intriguing to see how many people throughout the U.S. are beginning to recognize how beneficial house call medicine is – particularly considering how much house call medicine has grown throughout Los Angeles thanks to Dr. Michael Farzam. While Dr. Farzam is always quick to remind patients that they should contact emergency services by dialing 911 in the event of a life-threatening medical crisis, his team nonetheless provides truly extensive and convenient medical services, including treatment for:
