What is Home-based Primary Care?

Having a primary care physician is very important.

Everyone, no matter your current health status, should have a primary care doctor – an expert medical professional who can help keep you as healthy as possible, cure you when you are sick, help you manage a chronic condition, and more.

But if you are home-bound or live in an assisted-living facility, skilled nursing facility, retirement home, or retirement community, traveling to the doctor’s office can be challenging.

This is where our at-home primary care physicians can help.

Samaritan at-home primary care physicians are doctors who make house calls all throughout South Jersey.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call Samaritan at (800) 229-8183.

With this service, Samaritan will bring the doctor to you. By having a board-certified South Jersey primary care doctor making house calls wherever you call home, it eliminates the inconvenience and stress associated with frequent trips to the primary care office and will significantly improve the overall health care experience – for you and for your family and caregivers.
