What Our Patients Say


Absolutely amazing service! Dr. John is responsive, personable, and professional. I was able to save my PTO by not taking off, I was able to get the medicine I needed right away without having to travel to the pharmacy, and he gave me all the forms I needed for insurance.  I could not be happier with the service! 🙂

Absolutely fantastic! I am new to the area and haven't found a primary care physician yet. I was shocked at how quickly and easily I was able to be seen by a physician. Sparing all details, this is by far the best healthcare experience I have ever had. I would recommend this service to everyone.

At this point, the world must know that Urgent Med Housecalls is the best kept secret in San Francisco. All deserve great medical care at a fair cost, and Urgent Med Housecalls is the most amazing service I have ever experienced in my life!!!!

I just wanted to let you know, that my insurance reimbursed me the expenses. Thank you again and lots of greetings from chilly Berlin.

I am really emailing you to express my extreme gratitude for your prompt and efficient service. Your bedside manner almost made it a pleasure to be ill ! (Maybe that's stretching it a bit). May you have every success in your venture to help people who become ill in unfamiliar surroundings.

Your bedside manner was amazing.  Thank you so very much.

Dear Dr. Horning we re writing to you from Monterey to thank you for your human  quality above all! We re doing much better now! Remember you got friends in Buenos Aires!

Thanks John for the great service. I was feeling much better within 24 hours …….Thanks again.
