Overview:

 

BAYADA House Calls is currently seeking an experienced Physician (MD) for a per-diem position providing house calls to our patients in their homes. This is an exciting opportunity with an innovative and pioneering house call practice for a primary care provider who is looking to provide high quality care and make a difference in the lives of our home bound population.  You will have an opportunity to build a dedicated panel of patients that you will be able to build a personal, one on one relationship with. By utilizing a strong team approach combined with technology, we offer clinical services in many locations including private homes, senior residential facilities, group homes and skilled nursing facilities. Your visit becomes a personal experience with the focus on improving the quality of life of your clients. With a strong office team supporting your work, clinically and administratively, you will be allowed the opportunity to focus your time and energy on providing in depth quality care to your patients. Unlike a clinic, hospital or office based setting the time spent with your patients will range from 20-60 minutes depending on the visit, and the volume of patients you are managing and overseeing is significantly less. This personal take on primary care is ideal for a physician who is passionate about investing in their patients and their quality of life. The ideal candidate will have prior experience in house call medicine, home care, geriatrics, palliative care or hospice.
