Testimonials from Patients
I reached out to you last November regarding your practice taking care of my mother (Phyllis V.) as we moved her into Spring Arbor’s Assisted Living Facility in Raleigh as her dementia progressed.
The staff assigned to Spring Arbor are dedicated & caring to my mother as well as the other residents & this is certainly appreciated. Dr. Narine has gone above & beyond what’s expected from him in his duties. He and the other staff, especially Brittany McKinney (not sure of correct spelling) take a keen interest in the residents. Both of your staff always respond to any questions I’ve had over the past several months & are dedicated to their profession.
Please forward my appreciation to your staff & we sincerely appreciate your firm’s dedication to the folks at Spring Arbor.
Dear Dr. Taavoni,
You answered our email request for a visit while on the plane, flying home from Japan. You arrived late at night and came to us the next day, even after some confusion on our part. How fortunate we are to have a doctor who is so incredibly competent and responsible… and has such astounding stamina. What you did was an act of grace and a work of art.
Here’s a quick report on what happened when you visited. No words exist that fully express the gratitude in our hearts. So I’ll just send you a great big hug.
“I think your set-up is a wonderful idea and it is very efficient. Your staff has always been very helpful.”
AN ASSISTED LIVING PATIENT’S FAMILY
Doctors Making Housecalls have been wonderful! My mom was recently diagnosed with Dementia & we had to move her to assisted living at Brookdale in Wake Forest. They are now her primary care physicians & are taking such good care of her. I wish I had known about them sooner. They always let me know what is going on with her after every checkup. Everyone I've dealt with has been incredibly kind & caring. I recommend them highly!
I had to have a podiatrist evaluate a problem I had with my right big toe. [Dr. Jennifer Galaway] is excellent in providing you with what the problem is and my options to handle this problem. I so appreciate her allowing me the chance to be part of the solution. It is a great experience to be a patient at DMHC.
"I am grateful to Doctors Making Housecalls [Dr. Amit Kalra and Jeffrey LaFuria, PA-C] for enabling my husband to receive bedside treatment. It was a relief for the family to know that he had such care, and that he never lack for necessary medications and other medical treatment and assistance."
JAY AND LISA F.
"You [Monica Massey] were so kind to her. She always spoke highly of you. You were such a rock for me that last day - you are so compassionate."
"Leanne [Minnick] takes the time to discuss recommendations for changes in her care as well as keeping me abreast of her current condition. There are no words that can truly convey how grateful I am to have Leanne as my mother’s provider. Knowing my mother is well cared for helps reduce the extreme stress dementia creates for a patient’s family."
"[David Curl] went above an beyond in assisting us when we needed it most. Your kindness and patience will always be remembered."
FAMILY OF WILL G.
Not just for old people! I destroyed my back and couldn’t get up to get to a doctor, so thank God for these guys and THANK YOU, Jennifer Scott, for taking such good care of me!!! They [Doctors Making Housecalls] even ordered an X-ray guy to come take X-rays while I continued lying in bed. I'm a healthy person and this back thing has been so weird, and I was terrified because I couldn’t get to a doctor. These guys saved the day!!!

Monica called before she came, arrived right on time. She was so kind and gentle with my 87-year-old Mother who had not seen a physician in several years. She didn’t rush with the exam, answered all our questions and arranged for an X-ray to be made, in her home, that day. The X-ray technician was so kind and caring as well. It was a great and needed experience. We have scheduled a follow up for next month. I’m glad Mother will be seeing the same person. And glad to know of that continuity in care.

My parents and I enjoy Dr. Nanjagowder's visits. He is personable, conscientious & explains what he recommending and why. I also LOVE the service we receive from Dr. N's "Clinical Organizers". They are the BEST. They can often answer questions immediately and are quick to return calls if more is required. Excellent team approach...
Dr. Goodnough always takes time to make my husband comfortable with her visit and answers all of my questions. Together we make decisions for any next steps. I'm so pleased she is caring for my husband!
I am so pleased with Doctors Making Housecalls. I receive a follow-up call after every appointment at Oak Hill Living Center. They do not hesitate to refer if they feel it necessary. My friend is also pleased with their care.
Stephanie Pitts has been very thorough with the examination and treatment of my Mother. Stephanie is providing better care than Mom's regular Doctor. Very happy
