Doctor in the House
Quality medical care at your door

General Information

Doctor in the House is a medical practice dedicated exclusively to providing house calls. Dr.Matos will come to your home to provide medical services to you at your request, or as a service to your doctor, or visiting nurse. In order to qualify for a house call, the patient must be home-bound ( defined by Medicare as being physically unable to leave home ).

 As a board certified doctor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Matos will diagnose and treat medical illnesses (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart failure, asthma, emphysema, skin problems, etc) in ADULTS. If you choose, she will be your Primary Care Physician, providing you with essential medical services and coordinating your care with specialists, if needed.

So that she can be available when needed by her patients, her geographic practice area is limited to the towns of Northport (including Asharoken, Eaton's neck and Fort Salonga), Centerport, East Northport, Greenlawn, and King's Park. Please call with your location to determine whether you are within her service area.


Who can get a house Call?

 

Dr. Matos  serves Northport and its surrounding communities by offering her services to those individuals who have difficulty leaving their home to get to a doctor's office. All patients will be seen on a case by case basis. She will come to your home equipped with the medical tools necessary to treat most conditions, including EKG, and foley catheter placement/care. Dr. Matos can arrange for the provision of other services too, such as laboratory testing, X-Rays, holter monitoring, ultrasound, and surgical/medical supplies, to come to your home if needed. She frequently works in conjunction with other home care agencies, such as the Visiting Nurse Service and Hospice of Suffolk, St. Johnland's, Guildnet, and Lutheran Home Care.
