The days of doctors visiting patients’ homes to provide care is returning again to Ripon. Ewa Paszkiewicz, MD, a family medicine physician serving patients at Ripon Medical Center Primary Care Services, is now introducing this service locally for patients unable to make traditional office visits.
“We understand that many older adults want to live at home as long as they can,” says Dr. Paszkiewicz. “Some individuals face physical limitations making travel to a provider office difficult.”
Thanks to modern technology, medical care is possible outside of a traditional physician office. Following an initial office visit at Ripon Medical Center Primary Care Services with Dr. Paszkiewicz, she is available to provide home visits, depending on meeting the eligibility set up by the patient’s health insurance carrier.
Dr. Paszkiewicz works collaboratively with home visit program patients to emphasize wellness and the management of chronic diseases.
“Home visit programs enhance the overall quality of life and productivity of individuals,” according to Dr. Paszkiewicz. “They provide us, as physicians, with an opportunity to expand their understanding of patients’ home situations - from compliance, to safety, to other areas of concern.”
Interested residents should contact Ripon Medical Center Primary Care Services at (920) 748-0430 to schedule an initial office visit. Based on that visit and reviewing the health insurance requirements for each patient, home visit program participation will be determined. Upon approval, home visits can begin as needed.
Dr. Paszkiewicz specializes in family medicine and sees patients of all ages. She offers a full range of general family medicine, including preventive healthcare; annual physicals; well-child checks and immunizations; care for acute and chronic illness and general medical concerns.
A graduate of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, Dr. Paszkiewicz completed her family medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin -Wausau Family Medicine. Dr. Paszkiewicz was born and raised in Poland. She most recently worked in Indiana where she practiced as an attending physician for Fayette Memorial Health System.
