Convenience at your home We know that sometimes it can be difficult to find time for a doctor's appointment. Appointments are often time consuming, and the windows for scheduling opportunities may be limiting or interfere with your busy schedule and allowances. You may be juggling work, family, travel times and more. Maybe you have limited transportation or have difficulty getting around. Most pressing, you may have difficulty leaving your home due to a foot or ankle injury or other podiatric ailment. At the Illinois Foot & Ankle Clinic, we believe that your health should be a priority. We hope that the availability of house calls will encourage you not to ignore your ailing condition. Excellent Care Physician house visits flourished in the 1930's, but this changed by the mid 1960's when doctors developed their practices and then the house calls number dropped from 40% to less than 10% and then again dropped to 1% by 1980. As medical technologies advanced, it became a normal routine for patients to come to the doctor; however, the expansion of medical services does not mean that house calls should be obsolete. You can still get excellent care in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Benefits In addition to quality podiatric care made possible in the convenience of your home, other benefits of house calls include elevated trust between the patient and the doctor and limited trips to the emergency room, especially those that may be unnecessary. You can also save time and money you would normally spend for an office appointment, and we encourage you to take advantage of house calls to diagnose conditions with early detection and preventative care. House calls are available in the north Chicagoland area and north and west Chicago suburbs. Please call to determine if a house call is the right option for you and to schedule an appointment. Call 847-298-FEET(3338) to schedule an appointment.
