House calls return — and with them, some concerns For as little as $30 a visit, some primary-care providers are making house calls

Nobody likes taking time out of a busy day to cool their heels in a doctor's waiting room. Now you may not have to. Some primary-care practitioners are bringing their black bags directly to home or office, in some cases for as little as $30 to $35 a visit.

Experts agree that house calls are a great convenience, and for seriously ill patients who can't get to a doctor's office, they are often invaluable. But unless the practices offering house calls coordinate with patients' other providers, they may only further splinter an already fragmented health-care system, experts warn.
