I have small children and therefore don't work full time, but I still talk to my staff at least twice a day, my when I am not personally there. This way, urgent matters can be addressed and appointments arranged if indicated.
I admit and follow my own patients at Sharp Coronado Hospital when hospitalization is necessary. I work several days a month as the hospitalist, following many of the inpatients, and follow patients in the Villa Coronado nursing home or Seasons assisted living.
I do make occasional house calls for infirm or hospice patients for whom travel to the office is too difficult. However, I can only do this for those who leave somewhat near my office in Coronado, or on the way to my home in Serra Mesa.
