Testimonials

"This is a service that is really needed in our community."

- Boise resident


"I wish this service was offered at our community."         - retirement community resident
"This offers me an excellent opportunity to grow my primary care practice."

- community physician


"Thank you, Dr. Fuller, for giving us such a needed service."

       - retirement community resident


“This is a terrific service that I know my residents and their families will really love.  I know my employees will also appreciate that they can make an appointment for themselves and their own family members as well.”

       - retirement community administrator


“This is an awesome service!  We are considering a retirement community for my grandmother, and I would like her to be in a place where her doctor makes House Calls.”

       - granddaughter of a Boise elder


“This is really a neat service, Dr. Fuller.  I wish I lived in Idaho so I could be a part of it!”

       - nurse who lives out of state


“This is a fantastic service for my dad, and we really appreciate it.  He hasn't been going to the doctor like he should because it's so difficult to arrange and get there.  House Calls is perfect for him.  Thank you!”

       - daughter of a Boise elder who lives in our community partner's facility.


“This service [bringing doctors to retirement communities] is a no-brainer!  How come no one else in Boise is doing this?  My mother is elderly, and we've been discussing this very topic.  Way to go, Dr. Fuller!"

       - hospital nursing administrator and daughter and caregiver of elderly parents .


“Our first clinic was just a few days ago, and already I'm hearing a lot of positive comments."

       - executive dirctor of a House Calls retirement community partner.


“I think this is great!"

       - resident of a retirement community and a new House Calls patient.


“This is a wonderful service!  I haven't felt recently well and can't get to my doctor.  Having the doctor see me right in my own apartment is so much easier and so much better."

       - resident of a retirement community who has not been feeling well.


“This has been great for us having Dr. Jones come to our facility.  Seeing our residents in their own environment is much different than when they go to the office, and it is much less stressful for them.  Working with Dr. Jones is really great - he is very approachable, and the staff enjoy working with him."

       - owner of an Assisted Living Facility and House Calls partner.


“I think your services are really important, especially to help people get to their doctor."

       - resident of a retirement community who has difficulty arranging transportation out of the community.


“Dr. Fuller, I just want to tell you that I honor the work you do out here, and I know the other residents do too."

       - resident of a retirement community partner.


“Dr. Fuller, I highly support your work here and think it is invaluable.  It's really hard for many of us to get to the doctor, and I think everyone here should sign up for your service."

       - former entrepreneur and resident of a retirement community partner.


“I called Dr. Fuller on a Saturday night when I had no other known resource for advice in getting care for my sick elderly mother. He spent his evening making phone calls on my behalf, and, within a 1/2 hour, I had the help I needed. He is a Godsend and true servant to this community."

       - daughter of an elder not qualified for House Calls services.


“I haven't used your service yet, Dr. Fuller, but I probably will in the future.  Just you being here so regularly is a real comfort."

       - resident of a retirement community partner.


“Dr. Fuller, I hope you stay here.  I haven't needed your service yet, but I want you here when I DO need you."

       - resident of a retirement community partner.


"Medicare costs have risen to the point where the program pays out more than it takes in.  When one considers that number of baby boomers becoming eligible for Medicare, it is no surprise we are headed for a crash.  The current pay for procedure system is not working.  Perhaps this approach is a way to control costs and yet ensure that seniors have access to care."

       - reader of Idaho Statesman article from 2/25/13.


“I like this . . . .  when my grandmother was in assisted living, taking her to the Dr. was a living nightmare for us grand kids [and her].   It  was just too much of a change of environment for her.  I hope this company does well, we need this type of service."

       - reader of Idaho Statesman article from 2/25/13.


With the growing shortage of doctors nationwide, this is a very good thing that doctor Steven Fuller, and a professor of health sciences, Uwe Reischl, are doing.   It is wonderful to see people helping people.  Dogs are so wonderful for older people and young alike.  Who is so busy they cannot love a dog of their own???  Great protection for the wife when I am gone."

        - reader of Idaho Statesman article from 2/25/13.


This is beyond cool. Now this is a program we could serioulsy socialize and save huge bucks not to mention the benefit to patients.  My Tax Dollars Are In...."

        - reader of Idaho Statesman article from 2/25/13.


What a fantastic idea.  It's about time.  I've seen my 93 year old father have to wait for up to an hour in a waiting room for his doc.  I think that stinks.  Most docs don't respect the age or condition of their elderly patients when they over book appointments.  This takes a lot of the stress off the patient and families. Thank you for bringing back the house call idea."

        - reader of Idaho Statesman article from 2/25/13.


"Bonaventure is a community of which you should be most proud.  Now, with the new house call services you are premiering, you will provide your residents with addtional valuable services. This should make your facility the place to reside in the Treasure Valley!"

        - publisher of a Boise area newspaper.


"This is probably the first time in three years that I have had a waiting list, and I attribute it to the fact that I can tell them we have our own physician.  The service reduces transportation costs and provides residents with better care."

        - owner of 2 Assisted Living Communities and a current House Calls partner.


"Dr. Fuller, your innovative idea of “skins in the game” is an excellent engagement strategy to encourage more continuum stakeholders to participate in this innovative program. If these types of programs could be subsidized without assistance from the federal government, the longevity of the programs could be extended to last longer. The opportunity of having on site physicians to lead care teams would be a huge plus that has proven to be helpful to the residents of the retirement community you’ve described in your response.  I applaud you on the success of your innovative care program and wish you continued success with this venture."

        - Social Media Specialist at Right at Home, Inc.


"We have been fortunante to have a DR that does on site visits at our community. But where I see the problem, at least here in the greater Memphis area is, there are so few MD’s that are willing to go to the ALC’s, so the few MD’s that do, are so over worked and just can’t take on new patients/residents. We need more MD’s to entertain this concept. I love it, I see and hear families/POA’s that are so pulled, they have work, their own family to take care of and then the care if their aging parents, and taking them TO the DR’s office is a huge ordeal. Then, we have to educate the families that this service is available. We all (Americans as a whole) have been so programmed that you have to GO see the DR that it really is a new concept, and novel idea that the DR could COME to their loved one. I love it. Thanks for the great article."
