Dr. Martin Schnell, M.D., recently spoke with Spectrum News 13 reporter Eric Levy about the house calls he has been making for at-risk patients offering them treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We think for a lot of conditions that affect elderly people later in life, we can treat these conditions at about ten percent of the cost of a hospital.”
Rapha Wound Care will continue to offer home health visits for at-risk patients and healthcare visits for patients living in assisted living facilities in the coming months.
Dr. Schnell explained treating at-risk patients at home minimizes their risk of being exposed to the COVID-19 virus, as well as reduces the chances they will cancel an appointment, saving the patients and the Medicare system money.
