A BETTER WAY

is getting the care you need exactly where you need it.

Our Practice Philosophy

To provide care that is proactive, patient-centered and prevention-oriented. To see patients on a regular and detailed basis, and respond promptly to urgent care needs. To transform reactive, crisis-oriented care into proactive, preventive medicine, reducing unnecessary emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and 30-day readmissions and keeping patients healthy and at home.

Our Focus

Doctors Making Housecalls was created to serve patients (and their caregivers) in the comfort of their own environment. We are the gold-standard in home-based patient centered care and it is our mission to deliver the highest quality primary care available anywhere to patients of all ages, in more than 150 communities across North Carolina.

Our Reach

We come to you — from Greater Charlotte and the mountains to the Triad, the Triangle, Pinehurst/Southern Pines and Eastern North Carolina.

  • Spend more time with the doctor
  • Take a more proactive approach to care and avoid unnecessary ER or urgent care visits and unnecessary hospitalizations

OUR SERVICES

Comprehensive Primary Care

We provide comprehensive primary care to patients ages 3 to 103, and specialize in caring for complex, high-risk and high-needs patients. We serve as the primary care physician for the vast majority of our patients, and are dedicated to developing strong and lasting connections, assuming ongoing responsibility for their care, and coordinating any subspecialists or outside resources that may be required.

Acute/Urgent Care

We offer same-day or next-day service, seven days a week and come right to your door, at home or in your office. We do not provide emergency services. If you have a true medical emergency, you must go directly to the emergency room or call 9-1-1!

Geriatric Specialists

We provide a full range of geriatric medical services, including proactive, preventive care, complete geriatric assessments, diabetic screenings, hospice and palliative care, podiatry, ophthalmology, psychiatry, vision testing, wound care and more.

Preventive Medicine/Annual Physical Exam

We provide a full range of preventive medical services, including comprehensive physical examinations, as well as camp, school and sports physicals. We will schedule exams at your convenience, at home or in your office.

In addition to the periodic health exam, our preventive medical services also include EKGs, PAP smears, mammography, vision testing, prostate screening, flu shots, tetanus vaccines, and blood cholesterol and glucose tests, all done in home.

Blood Drawing

Our contract phlebotomists will draw your blood for whatever laboratory tests may be required to fully evaluate any medical problem and it’s done in the comfort of your home or senior residence.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

Using state-of-the-art Welch Allyn technology, we perform EKG studies with computer analysis and interpretation, in your home or office.

X-Ray and Medical Imaging Studies

DMHC can coordinate all medical imaging studies, including traditional x-rays, mammography, CT, MRI, Ultrasonography, and echocardiograms. Many (but not all) of these studies can also be done in your home.
