House calls were the norm in the 1800s, but they decreased in popularity during the mid-1900s as more Americans moved from rural areas and into cities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, house calls returned to popularity as an effective way to help slow the spread of the virus.

The team offers more specialized house calls as well. For example, if you want to undergo wellness procedures like IV therapy, they can bring all of the necessary equipment to your home.
To schedule house calls at Collin Medical and Wellness Group, you must first enroll as a patient. If you’re unable to visit the office in person, the team can send you new patient paperwork digitally or through the traditional mail.
After you complete all of the necessary documentation and undergo a new patient screening (either in-person or via telemedicine) the team can develop a custom house call schedule that aligns with your needs.
If you’re in relatively good health, annual exams and routine preventive screenings can help you stay that way. Conversely, if you have a chronic illness, regular house calls can prevent it from getting worse.
