Chronic illness management

"...the best upgrade of your life"

We actively manage all of these major long term health problems

As you look at our current 2% readmission rate, you may ask how does House Call Doctor Thousand Oaks perform when managing difficult chronic illnesses?  The answer:  very well. 

All of the following chronic illnesses are being managed today in our patient population.  In addition, we have more quadriplegics and long-term multiple sclerosis patients than we ever expected.  Those cases are all a good match for our ER and trauma center trained staff. 

We handle even more than what is listed below, but California's OSHPD doesn't track stats for rarer illnesses like adult onset dystonia (multi-hour full-body spasms).



These longer term illnesses see significant national readmission rates.  California OSHPD tracks these as one-year readmission rates.  Compare these to our own under 2%, yes, that's TWO percent readmission rate:

            55.4%    Emphysema COPD
