22 Oct What Are The Benefits Of A House Call Doctor For Covid-19?
Covid-19 has made day-to-day tasks look quite different. Many of us are hesitant to leave our homes, and many of us are wearing masks or using hand sanitizer frequently wherever we go. Despite our best efforts, though, it’s still possible to catch the virus. If you’ve recently gotten a positive diagnosis, a house call doctor for Covid-19 may be right for you. Let’s talk about why.
Why get a house call doctor for Covid-19?
A concierge doctor is a premium service that provides house calls, IV therapy, and more in the comfort of your home. These doctors can provide urgent and primary care – including care for Covid-19 – without you needing to leave your couch.
Many cases of Covid-19 can be treated just like a cold or the flu: with plenty of rest, fluids, and nutritious food. But there’s more that can be done to help you feel better faster.
House call doctors can prescribe medications that can help improve your symptoms. They can also administer IV treatments that help replenish vitamins that support healthy immune function, as well as keep you hydrated. This is especially valuable for patients who experience digestive issues from Covid.
Some in-home providers offer an IV therapy called Covid-19 Monoclonal Antibody IV Therapy. This treatment may reduce the chance of Covid-19 hospitalizations in high-risk patients along with reducing the severity of symptoms.
If your doctor determines that you need more specialized care, they can make arrangements for you so that you don’t have to worry about doing so while you’re unwell.
What is long Covid?
There are millions of people who are diagnosed with Covid-19 and recover within a few weeks and have no recurrence of symptoms. There also are others that are not so lucky. They are part of a group we now have diagnosed with as having “Long Covid.”
Many Covid patients find that even after their initial diagnosis and symptoms cycle through, they are left with symptoms that have lasted for months or even longer. The symptoms are different for each patient and don’t occur all at once. They are sometimes a combination of one or more of the ones listed:
- Extreme Fatigue
- Memory Issues
- Muscle Weakness
- Joint Pain
There may be other symptoms that are not listed above; all Long Covid patients are different and react differently. A house call doctor for Covid can assess long symptoms and recommend a treatment plan for you, as well as monitor your progress towards a full recovery. Instead of requiring you to visit a clinic while you are feeling exhausted, your house call doctor can check in on you with telemedicine consultations.
