As a Medicare-certified home health care company, Nursing Plus of Broward is pleased to assist you in scheduling a physician house call for qualifying Medicare patients.

Having a physician visit you at home can be a solution to receiving high-quality care in your home to not only retain independence but also support and maintain your health.
At Nursing Plus of Broward, we have seen that having a physician visit you at home is an effective and safe way to treat patients who face challenges in being seen in a traditional physician’s office.
