About Visiting Physician Services
House calls are back!Founded in 1994 by Dr. Jon Salisbury, Visiting Physician Services is one of the largest and most experienced house call practices in New Jersey. Renowned in his field, Dr. Salisbury was named the 2001 Physician of the Year by the American Academy of Home Care Physicians. With a clinical staff of 34 medical professionals, we are dedicated to being responsive, compassionate and professional in meeting the medical needs of our patients.
In addition, as of January 1, 2015, Visiting Physician Services joined forces with the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) Health Group to better serve the frail elderly and homebound in New Jersey who need health care at home. VNA Health Group is New Jersey’s largest nonprofit Visiting Nurse Association that helps individuals and families achieve their best level of health and well-being by providing home health care, hospice, palliative and community-based care and operating private-pay personal care services. The combination will join Visiting Physician Services’ team of doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants with VNA Health Group’s more than 1,200 clinical staff of nurses, doctors, rehabilitation therapists, social workers, nutritionists and certified home health aides.

Benefits of a House CallHouse calls provide an alternative means of making care accessible and they can lead to better overall outcomes and an improved quality of life for the patient. House calls reduce overall healthcare costs including decreasing the number hospitalizations and emergency room visits. Some other benefits of house calls include:
Reduced stress of getting to and from the doctor's office
Lessens the anxiety faced by families caring for elderly relatives
Accurate evaluation of the home situation
Better communication with family members/caregivers
Reduced dependence on emergency servicesPerhaps the biggest reason for providing home healthcare is the benefit it provides to patients: allowing them to remain in their homes as long as possible while improving their outcomes and quality of life. Our patients and caregivers can have peace of mind and take comfort in knowing that quality, home healthcare is just a phone call away.
By seeing patients in their own comfortable environment, their health care experience is greatly improved.
