What we believe

Why

We believe that great medical care comes from listening to our patients and understanding how their personal goals match the best research and treatment.   That level of attention is missing from the modern system of 12 minute appointments.   


We listen well and charge appropriately for excellent medical care -- from typical urgent care to some of the most complex cases.

Our goal is to make this affordable to people at any point on the economic spectrum.

How

Dr. Ellen Crowe or one of her six-person medical staff will come see you at your home or office 24/7.  "Some people say it's urban legend that a doctor would come see you in your home.  I promise you that it's real.  I've rediscovered the benefits to both patient and physician of seeing patients in their own home or office."

Dr. Crowe, an Emergency Room physician since 1990, offers an improved approach to primary care.

What

House Call Doctor Thousand Oaks is open 24/7 and specializes in keeping patients out of the ER if they don't need to be there, reducing readmissions, and improved doctor-patient communication.  Many people come to us because of an urgent medical issue -- and stay because of everything else.

We focus on people who are difficult to serve in the traditional office setting due to a patient's physical or time constraints.   This often leads to fewer admissions to the hospital and higher patient satisfaction.
