Dr. Richard Potts has announced he is accepting new patients to his house-call practice, “Hospital at Home.” Potts provides in-home visits to patients that are too ill or weak to leave their home due to illness or dementia.
“For most patients this is simply primary care in the comfort of their home,” Potts said.
In more advanced cases, Potts can provide services such as blood work, skilled nursing and therapy. He can directly admit patients to Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center or Halifax Health Medical Center where he will be the attending physician, according to a press release.
Stephanie Potts will serve as medical practice manager.
Potts has been in private practice for 12 years in the Ormond Beach area. He is a graduate of Father Lopez High School, and obtained his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine.
