25 Nov What Type Of Prescriptions Are Available From A House Call Doctor?
Perhaps you have agoraphobia and do not wish to leave your home to go to the doctor’s office. Or you may be looking for a more straightforward, safer, and more convenient way to get medications prescribed to you during the Covid pandemic to mitigate your risk of contracting the virus. Either way, if you have an illness that requires prescription medications, you may be wondering what types of prescriptions are available from a house call doctor.
This article will discuss if there’s any difference between the kinds of medications you can get prescribed from a house call doctor versus a doctor in a traditional clinic.
What kinds of medications can a house call doctor prescribe?
In fact, a house call doctor can prescribe you the same medications that a doctor would prescribe at an in-office appointment.
There is no difference between what medications a house call doctor is allowed to prescribe and what a doctor can prescribe during an in-office appointment since your doctor is licensed and board-certified the same as physicians at a clinic.
A house call doctor can prescribe everything from blood pressure medication to allergy medicine to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medication to psychiatric medications for major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. These are just some of the prescriptions available from a house call doctor.
What are some other benefits of house calls?
One of the most important benefits of house call doctor’s appointments is their convenience. If you are getting a medication prescription refilled, in-clinic doctor’s appointments tend to be overly time-consuming affairs. You have to drive or take the bus to the office and then wait for the doctor to be ready to tend to your needs. Even then, they will be likely to only visit with you for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Sometimes, the length and quality of the doctor’s appointments you make (especially those only to get prescriptions refilled) do not seem to be worth the commute to and from the office. On top of that, you have to wait in a crowded waiting room, taking the risk that you may contract an illness from someone else in the waiting room.
House call appointments save you time because you do not need to commute or sit in the waiting room. As the name implies, these appointments are conducted in the privacy and comfort of your own home. House calls also keep you safer from Covid by decreasing the number of people you need to come into contact with (such as receptionists, other patients, and nurses). The fewer people you come into contact with, the better chance you have of avoiding contracting Covid-19.
