Enjoy Primary Care-
and Peace of Mind
in the Comfort of
Never worry about missing a primary care doctor’s appointment or struggling to get there.
Whether you need to see a health care provider for a routine check-up or because you are
sick, with BAYADA Physician Services, we come to you.
For those who are homebound or find it extremely difficult to get around, primary care visits
at home can help you stay safe and avoid unnecessary emergency room visits and
Our responsive and compassionate care team brings high-quality care to patients and peace of
mind to their loved ones.
In-home medical visits. Out-of-the-ordinary care.
Overseen by a medical director, our experienced team of nurse practitioners and physician
assistants provide high-quality, one-on-one primary care at home—wherever you call home. We do everything an officed based PCP would do, including conducting exams,
writing prescriptions, and making referrals to specialists. But we go a step further,
ordering and coordinating lab and imaging services as well as durable medical equipment
(DME) so you don’t have to.
Care tailored to your needs
Under our care, you’ll receive ongoing primary care services by one dedicated provider who
gets to know you and your unique health needs.
We also see patients who are temporarily homebound—such as due to a recent hospitalization or
surgery—until they are well enough to be discharged back to their regular PCP.
Virtual visits with telehealth
We offer convenient telehealth visits for both urgent and non-urgent medical needs. Our team
has extensive expertise in successfully diagnosing and treating conditions through virtual
visits, whether over the phone or through video.
