It’s Thursday night and you’re cooking for Shabbos. Suddenly, in the midst of cutting vegetables for chicken soup, you feel an excruciating pain as your finger begins to bleed profusely. Seeking immediate medical treatment is your only option; the cut is quite deep. But it’s considerably past your doctor’s scheduled office hours, and you truly don’t feel up to driving to the ER or urgent-care center and spending time in a crowded waiting room.

Fever in the middle of the night? Painful earache or sore throat after your child’s pediatrician’s office hours? Are you worried about the condition of an elderly loved one who cannot travel to the doctor’s office?

If you are injured, feel sick, or are under the weather, don’t go another day without seeking medical care. When your doctor is out, OnCallCare is in. They want to be your first call in any situation. They have elevated the house call experience of bygone years by providing every patient with the highest level of medical care within the comfort of their home. They give medicine a modern feel with an old-fashioned touch!

“At OnCallCare, our mission is to personalize your medical encounter with the highest quality of care in the comfort, privacy, and convenience of your own home,” says Andrew Weissman, PA-C, who serves as OnCallCare’s medical practitioner for the Five Towns community.

“With today’s frenetic lifestyle, we are constantly striving for convenience and comfort in everything we do, so why should our medical care be different? OnCallCare is proud to bring back the house call, while careful to preserve the personal and warm touch. We are at our most comfortable and relaxed within the privacy of our own home. Utilizing that idea, OnCallCare decided to add an element of warmth and comfort to visits to the doctor’s office, where some patients may feel uncomfortable. Our promise is to always go over and beyond for our patients, ensuring they’re taken care of mentally, physically, and emotionally. At OnCallCare, we pride ourselves on our compassion, quality care, discretion, and convenience.”

As the world has changed, healthcare has evolved to keep up. Overcrowded emergency rooms, incessant hours spent in private waiting rooms, as well as the inconvenience of traveling to an urgent-care center in the middle of the night have launched the concept of an exciting new and even more efficient path for exemplary patient care.

Conditions OnCallCare Treats

Head/Eyes/Ears/Nose/Throat. If you have an earache, eye infection (conjunctivitis), headache, migraine, sinusitis, sore throat, or tonsillitis, their qualified practitioners will provide you with a comprehensive consultation and, if necessary, prescribe medication.

Flu and Fever. Missing work because you’ve been sick with the flu? We understand and know how miserable the flu can make you feel. You shouldn’t have to trek outside of your home in order to get medical treatment. Just give OnCallCare a call and Andrew Weissman will be at your home in no time to evaluate you and give you expert medical treatment.

Pulmonary. If you have been coughing for a few days and can’t seem to get relief, and your doctor cannot see you for a week, OnCallCare is a great alternative to going to the emergency room. Andrew Weissman can treat you for bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma.

Skin. Ailments that occur on your skin can be irritating and painful, so prompt treatment is essential. OnCallCare treats bites (animal and insect), burns, rashes, cuts and lacerations, and poison ivy.

Stomach/GI. Medical conditions with your stomach and GI tract can be especially embarrassing and painful, which is why OnCallCare offers in-house treatment. Their practitioners treat you discreetly from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Conditions they treat include abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, acid reflux, and hemorrhoids.

At OnCallCare, your health is their first priority. From the minute you call, their priority is you, understanding your symptoms and helping you feel better through a professional, personal house call from an experienced and caring medical provider.

You are their patient, not a number waiting on line. They spend as much time as they need, focused on you. They talk through your medical history and discuss, diagnose, and treat your condition. This time spent together is important because it helps them to accurately understand your condition and recommend a treatment plan. Before they leave, they will answer any questions you may have and make sure you understand your diagnosis and treatment.
