Doctor comes home – home visit
We used to see the important role of the doctor who came home in old black and white films. Doctor home visit service was the first choice for patients in the eighties and nineties, and there was a family doctor for every family who knew the medical history details of all family members. After that, the doctor home visit service disappeared, due to the appearance of private clinics and the inability of doctors to balance the patient’s visit at home with their private clinics.
The family doctor’s service declined too, with the increase in the number of patients visiting the private clinics, it became difficult for the doctor to remember the medical history of all patients, and doctors visits in the clinic were limited to diagnosing symptoms only and not a continuous follow-up of the patient’s health state in general.
But recently, the need for doctor home visit services has increased, so what is the reason behind that?
Doctor comes home from Curexmed

The development of technology and the appearance of many health care companies that provide all medical services at home which save the time and effort of the patient and his family in visiting hospitals or clinics led to increasing demand for doctor comes home service.

General Practitioner vs Specialist vs Consultant
You can request a general practitioner, a specialist, or a consultant when requesting doctor comes home service, but what is the difference between them?
General Practitioner Doctor
You can request the general practitioner comes home from Curexmed to check on your health in general. The general practitioner is the doctor who provides continuous and comprehensive health care for all family members of all ages and both sexes, as he treats acute and chronic diseases, provides preventive medical care for all family members, and refers cases to specialist doctors.
If you suffer from many symptoms and cannot determine which medical specialty you have to go to, you should ask a general doctor to perform a medical examination and he will refer you to a specialist doctor, he may also request some tests and x-rays to help in the diagnosis process.
whereas the specialist doctor specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of specific human systems (such as a heart and blood vessel specialist, orthopedic specialist), he can examine all diseases related to his specialization in general, and refer the patient to a specialized consultant if necessary.
There are sub-specialties in each specialty; for example, a neuro-ophthalmologist, a pediatric ophthalmologist, a glaucoma consultant, and others within the ophthalmology specialty.
and The doctor who specializes in one of the subspecialties is called a consultant doctor, who diagnoses diseases, follows up on the patient’s health condition, and determines the appropriate treatment plan and the necessary surgeries for the patient.
