Call Doctor provides state-of-the-art medical treatment within the comfort of your home

Health has always been a top priority and we often opt for routine check-ups at hospitals for diagnosis and medicine prescriptions. But there are days when sickness gets the better of us. At times, one even finds it difficult to drive to the nearest clinic, or a loved one may be too ill to move. Even the thought of queuing for your turn may seem dreadful when in pain. While it is natural to feel a sense of panic and helplessness, but there's no need to fear. In such cases, a doctor on call such as Call Doctor is an ideal solution to put your mind at ease.

Spearheaded by Dr Minhaz Hussain, Chairman and Founder of Call Doctor, the service brings qualified professionals straight to the doorsteps of residents living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. There are several factors that make Call Doctor a safe, convenient and above all care, which led to its recent recognition as one of the top 10 best healthcare start-ups in 2019.

Call Doctor comprises of Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) registered doctors, nurses and physiotherapists, that respond within 30-45 minutes of making a call. Armed with excellent patient care delivery, Call Doctor is revolutionising the concept of healthcare at home, bringing in a team of first response experts that are seasoned in out-of-hospital treatments, complemented by strict hygienic practices and a fully-equipped portfolio to resolve various patient cases.

The inspiration behind the Call Doctor came from Dr Minhaz Hussain's understanding of patients' needs. Having almost two decades of clinical expertise and experience as a medical director, Dr Minhaz Hussain has treated thousands of patients and noticed a critical need for home healthcare, especially during unforeseen events, 24 hours/ 365 days/nights, even on public holidays.

Now, as the Covid-19 epidemic has gripped the globe with the UAE actively engaged in a mission to flatten the curve, there are certain restrictions set in place across the country to safeguard the health of its residents. Even if a patient manages to secure an appointment, there is still a high risk of exposure between leaving home and entering a clinic. In this case, Call Doctor is one of the safest and most reliable options to turn to, thus significantly reducing chances of infections and bringing a peace of mind.

Whether the patient is suffering from seasonal issues, such as fever or allergies; requires treatment for infectious diseases and respiratory ailments; experiences dehydration, body pain such as backaches; or requires first aid or wound care, to name a few, Call Doctor is ready to address different conditions with state-of-the-art equipment. Each mobile unit fully facilitates digital ear thermoscans, wireless pulse oximeters, paediatric tools, compact nebulisers, an IV drip set-up, sterile specimen collectors, portable ECG machines to cater to every need.

Health comes first for Call Doctor, which is why the mobile healthcare service maintains an affordable rate, solely focused on treatments and services, and does not charge based on the location of visits. Patients are also guaranteed confidentiality and privacy.
