What’s it like being a home doctor?
Dr Ryan Harvey joined the House Call Doctor team in 2015 and is now working as an Assistant Medical Director in Brisbane. He also currently works in General Practice at a local health clinic. After hours, Dr Harvey provides medical care to families in their own homes. Dr Harvey is experienced in paediatrics and has travelled extensively, administering medical care to children in remote overseas communities.
Dr Harvey says, “visiting patients in their own homes is a whole new experience, one that differs entirely from my work in General Practice.
“I love working for House Call Doctor as a home doctor due to how flexible the work is – it suits my lifestyle perfectly.
“The range of patients you see as an after-hours doctor is extremely diverse and provides a unique and valuable experience. It’s a really fulfilling and valuable experience being a home doctor for House Call Doctor.”
