Nursing home patients typically require regular care and guidance from medical professionals, but often they find it difficult to make appointments at hospitals and doctors’ offices. To help, Dr. Niaz MDfrequently visits nursing homes in his community and administers diagnosis and treatments without elderly patients having to find transportation.
For years, Dr. Niaz MD has proved his devotion to patients and his medical prowess by earning top accolades and special certifications in his field. He’s spent decades providing top-notch care in a range of medical capacities, such as serving as an OTR truck driver examiner for the Department of Transportation. In addition, he makes frequent visits to nursing homes to ensure that elderly patients in his community receive the care they deserve without having to travel to medical facilities.
“We have nursing homes in our communities where elderly people require medical attention on occasion but who don’t have the means of getting to their doctors to receive care,” says Dr. Niaz MD. “By making visits, I can build relationships with the nursing home patients and provide regular checkups and medical care as needed.”
Nursing home staff work with patients to develop a care plan that fits each of their individual health needs. Many times, however, this requires traveling to offsite medical facilities which may have to be coordinated into group ventures. Dr. Niaz MD provides a solution to the elderly in his community by visiting the nursing homes and monitoring patients’ health.
