Our Physician Comes to You
We offer rapid response for most hospice requests anywhere throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
Why Patients and Their Families Call Us
Requests for our service are usually made when no established primary care physician is available for an immediate response home visit, and the patient has become physically ill and is potentially suffering. In most cases, patients have already made the decision for hospice care. In other cases, we are asked by family or friends to help them with this decision process. With a physician housecall, ample time is made available for thorough communication and decision-making by all those involved. If hospice is determined to be the best option, physician orders are written and a hospice service is then contacted immediately. In many cases, hospice home care providers may arrive same day to begin the process.
