Doctors Making House Calls Enjoy A Unique Vantage Point. Doctors making house calls have unique experiences. We recently started treating a husband and wife senior team. Their love has withstood the test of time, and being able to bring them medical care at home, has provided them with a unique service that allows them to worry less, and love more. When I saw the video below (even though it is a commercial) we felt it captured the essence of their timeless love, and we feel honored to have a vantage point that allows us to observe, admire and support. If only we could all be so lucky. No I am not crying. Something is in my eye.

Food on the Go – Powering Mobile Medicine Napoleon and Frederick the Great are both attributed with saying, “An army marches on its stomach.” Resurgia’s House Call providers are akin to an army, traversing 2,600 square miles each day in the fight to deliver quality healthcare and improve the quality of life for our patients. As we hit the road each day, one of the essential questions providers must answer is, “Where should I eat today?”. The further we stretch from our homes, the more a game of luck and chance this becomes. Each day we roll the dice with lunch. How do you power mobile medicine? We are typically looking for food that is fresh, healthy, quickly served in accessible locations. Our diverse backgrounds span a wide range of tastes. Although some of our staples include Chick-Fil-A, Wendy’s, Chipotle, Panera Bread, Jason’s Deli and Waffle House, balancing convenience with healthy choices is a constant challenge.
