House Calls May be the Answer for Patients Concerned about Measles and Other Illnesses, says Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles

An April 30th article from NPR provides seven important facts about measles in the wake of a series of recent outbreaks of a disease that had become extremely rare since the mid-20th century. Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles encourages people who may be concerned about whether or not their flu-like symptoms may actually be measles to consider finding out for sure with the help of a house call doctor.

While measles manifests in early symptoms which parallel the flu or an unusually bad cold virus, other symptoms may include white spots inside the mouth and rashes, says Dr. Farzam. Even so, it’s not always clear what illness a patient may be suffering from and it’s important to be sure, he adds. Like influenza, measles viruses are highly contagious and carry a significantly greater risk of complications, some serious. Patients who are not sure whether the rash their suffering alongside their fever is due to the measles or some relatively harmless skin condition, for example, should seek immediate urgent care, he notes. However, it’s helpful if they are aware that their options have expanded especially when it comes to finding a 24 hour doctor.

Dr. Farzam says that he has been at the vanguard of the return of house calls to standard medical practice since it's comeback began some time ago. Just a few years back, he notes, house calls seemed to be a quaint relic of the mid-20th century, but miniaturization has made it much easier for skilled physicians to make visits to a patient’s home, office, hotel room, or even a film set or other worksite while providing complete care. For patients who are experiencing acute symptoms, this allows them to be treated without the stress of dealing with stressful LA traffic and crowded urgent care centers, says Dr. Farzam. For individuals dealing with chronic problems or who have gone too long without a check-up, he warns that a busy life should never get in the way of proper health care. For obvious reasons, taking advantage of the services of House Call Doctor Los Angeles can make it much easier to fit important health care into a crowded schedule.

Dr. Farzam says that with increasing concerns about outbreaks of formerly very rare illnesses, including measles and whooping cough, people who are concerned that they might have missed certain vaccinations or booster shots may also want to consider contacting a board-certified internist like him.
House Call Los Angeles and Dr. Farzam are available on a 24/7 basis. Interested readers can reach out to his mobile urgent care practice at (310) 849-7991 or visit it online at
