Why Use an At-Home Doctor

In-Home Pediatric Medical Services, Day or Night

Imagine you need a pediatrician late at night to examine your feverish child.

An expensive emergency room visit may take at least three hours, and the attending physician will have no first-hand experience in treating your child. They will likely be hurried, managing many patients at once.  Until now, your only choice was to head for the hospital and hope for the best.

Although we cover all primary care services that any Pediatrician does in his or her office, we still recommend that the parents keep the emergency room and the hospital insurance.

Compared to stressful regular emergency room visits or inconvenient office appointment hours for non-emergency purposes, in-home pediatric visits enable Dr. Bitar to offer superior medical service in several ways:

  • More Comfortable - The home is a better environment in which to treat children who are typically more comfortable and responsive in a familiar setting. More accurate diagnoses are also possible when examining children in surroundings they inhabit most of the time.
  • Convenient - In-home visits are more convenient for both parent and child. A busy parent with a demanding job is often hard-pressed to get a sick child to a clinic. In-home visits are easily scheduled and don’t require driving to a clinic and a lengthy wait to see a physician.
  • A Thorough Exam - More time can be spent with each patient. Getting to know a child personally can make a significant difference in long-term care. A pediatrician frequently cannot conduct in-depth, comprehensive assessments of a child’s condition in a clinic, due to time constraints.
  • Cleaner Environment - The possibility of infection is reduced. Germ-related infections are more common in clinics or hospitals.

 

"Dr. Bitar is wonderful with my kids and is very caring. She has come to the rescue many times! Even an after hours visit that helped me not miss work, yet get my son the attention he needed. Antibiotics prescirbed for an ear infection that evening. He was good as new in the morning and didn't have to miss school. That was a huge time saver! Thank you, Dr. Bitar! You are amazing!"  S.M.
