Each day emergency departments across Dubai treat life-threatening presentations and work hard to save lives.

Baby or Infant Health Care
As a new parent, you may face many new situations with your baby. We, at First Response Doctor on Call Services understand that you want the best for your child. If your baby is sick, your best option is to request a home visit from a doctor in Dubai so that your baby or infant gets immediate medical attention and will not be exposed to additional bacteria at a walk-in clinic’s waiting room.
Future of healthcare is in the convenience of Home healthcare
In ancient times, patients would get individual attention from their town doctor only when he would knock on their door and bring health care to them. Today, thanks to technology, we have numerous advanced medical tools which help us treat patients better and quicker. However, in the midst of all this, we have neglected the quality of service the patient receives while being treated via new advancements. At-home visits of doctors were frequent in the mid-1960s. Before the start of the Second World War, almost 40 percent of patients were treated at the comfort of their home. Soon, the numbers dropped as the physicians began establishing their own clinics or tied up with hospitals to provide pristine medical care without delay. However, as many governments are now giving reimbursement rates for home visits, the numbers have begun to rise, slowly but steadily. What many people fail to realize is that they can avail the best medical help at their homes; thanks to advanced medical treatments that are now becoming portable.
With our Doctor On Call Services, we also bring back that classic connection between patient and doctor. In the old days, doctors would visit patients in their homes to treat them – a true testament to personal care, compassion, and support. Our service revives this classic medical service, visiting and treating you in your home instead of you coming to us. Our Doctors spend much more time with you than a clinic or hospital OPD doctor who has another patient waiting outside and you get a comprehensive and personalized medical review.
No waiting rooms – Waiting in a room before meeting the doctor is one of the worst parts of going to the medical clinic. A long waiting period will hamper the experience and may worsen the condition of the patient. If your child is sick, taking him to the doctor is a whole different headache, as you have to make sure that the germs are not spread to others. You can also risk your health by sitting in a room full of patients who have fevers, runny noses, and cough. House calls eliminate the need to sit in a place full of sick and contagious patients. This is the best if you are looking for a simple check-up or are worried about an impending health issue. During sick seasons, waiting rooms are full of patients. This will delay your scheduled appointment even if you are on time. Needless to say, there will be no line of patients at your home so that you can conduct the appointment comfortably.
Convenience of Doctor visit at your home – Convincing your mind to pack up and get ready for the doctor’s appointment is one of the daunting tasks when you are ill. Patients who feel unwell cannot risk their health by going to the doctor’s clinic as they can worsen their situation. The best option, in this case, would be to call the doctor and rest at your home. This convenience is unmatched and can also play a crucial role in your treatment. Doctors can now efficiently conduct some tests and analyze your condition without hassles, thanks to portable medical equipment, Laboratory services and prescription delivery at home. Just one phone call will bring your doctor to your home, and you will be able to avoid troubles like traffic and bad weather.
On-call doctors can visit you at your hotel rooms too, not just your residential address. You can call them in your office before a meeting to fend off the onset of a severe medical condition. The flexibility of visiting doctors is the most beneficial to seniors, who find it difficult to travel from one place to another while being in a critical condition.
If you are searching for a doctor for house calls, contact the experienced team of First Response Healthcare. Our team is certified by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), and we look to assist anyone in need of medical help to save them both time and money. We are available to respond 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, which speaks volumes about our dedication.
