There will be situations when you are admitted to hospital. Because of aggressive cost cutting by the third parties and other reasons, you are now instructed at the hospital to follow up with your physician. This follow up saves lot of harm to the patient. Everyday we see patients who have been put on wrong medications with improper discharge planning. Hospitals are not only discharging patients quicker but also are using unsafe practice of using non physicians to discharge patients.
So getting a physician to properly go thorough your discharge papers and ensure that medications are proper and conditions are properly diagnosed is always a good idea. If hospital asks you to see your physician, book your office visit within 7 days of hospital discharge and bring your hospital discharge papers. Please do not mix your regular office visits with hospital discharge follow ups. We provide same day or next day appointments when you need.
