DOCTORS MAKING HOUSECALLS (DMH) is a medical group practice of 42 outstanding, hand-picked clinicians making more than 75,000 home visits a year in private residences, retirement communities, apartment buildings and independent and assisted facilities in the Triangle, Triad and Charlotte regions of North Carolina.
Our passion is caring for frail, elderly complex patients – particulary the highest-needs, highest-cost segment of the senior population; however, we are always happy to care for uncomplicated patients age 3 and up, in their home or place of business, or to help a person visiting for pleasure or business from out of town who gets sick while staying in a friend’s home or hotel room.
DMH brings the best medical care into the most convenient, comfortable and lowest cost place of service – our patient’s home or business environment. Our pioneering practice has transformed the “old-fashioned house call” into a 21st century phenomenon, by providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art care 7 days a week, as well as urgent care with same-day or next-day appointments. We also have a number of subspecialists in our group who provide our primary care clinicians with consultations in palliative care, infectious disease, endocrinology, rheumatology, pulmonary and intensive care medicine, podiatry, wound care.
Thanks to our patient-centered philosophy of care, sophisticated technology, multi-dimensional delivery system, and close partnership with key resources in the communities we serve, we are able to perform more tests and procedures in our patient’s home or place of business than most primary care physicians perform in their office. And our service is surprisingly affordable because we contract with every insurance company, and are “in network” with nearly every plan. We also file all the paperwork for our patients.
We are the “gold standard” physician home visit practice in the country. Two years ago we were honored to be 1 of only 16 practices nationwide selected to participate in Medicare’s groundbreaking Independence At Home Demonstration (IAH) Demonstration, based on our practice’s reputation for clinical excellence and the sophistication of our electronic medical records and cloud-based practice management systems. Among the 16 participating practices, DMHC has the most successful in reducing unnecessary expenditures on emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and in reducing 30-day hospital readmissions. We were also the only practice to succeed in 6 out of 6 of the Demonstration’s demanding quality of care measures.
Next time you find yourself waiting interminably for an appointment or languishing in a doctor’s office, urgent care clinic, or emergency room, worrying about exposure to other sick people not to mention the bill you’re going to receive for care that is not a true emergency, please remember – there is a better way! DMH offers prompt appointments in the comfort of your own home or business, for any medical condition except life-threatening emergencies. We come to you when and where you need us, seven days a week, so you’ll get the right care, in the right place, at the right time — and never have to wait in a doctor’s office again.
Please note: DMH accepts ALL government and private/commercial insurance except Duke Select.
