EssenMed House Calls Expands Its Offices to Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay

Bronx, NY(October 5, 2015) – EssenMed House Calls, New York’s largest privately held in-home medical house calls service, is proud to announce that on October 1st, 2015 it expanded its offices to the Sheepshead Bay area of Brooklyn. Opening an additional administrative office in Brooklyn is a natural extension of EssenMed House Calls’ infrastructure as the need for our services in Brooklyn has grown significantly in the last few years.

Since its inception in 2005, EssenMed House Calls has diligently served the homebound communities of all five boroughs of New York, as well as lower Westchester, and has a solid reputation for excellence in the medical community. In August of 2015, Inc. 5000 ranked EssenMed House Calls the fastest growing in-home primary care practice in the country, and just a few months prior, Chief Medical Director, Dr. Sumir Sahgal, was named House Calls Doctor of the Year by the American Academy of Home Care Medicine. Expanding to Sheepshead Bay, and thus more effectively servicing homebound Brooklyn natives, is just one example of EssenMed House Calls’ efforts to reach more patients in dire need of in-home medical care. It is with unwavering dedication to providing the highest quality care to all those who need in-home attention that EssenMed House Calls embraces growth and constantly looks to maximize the efficiency of its service.

“During this past decade, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that innovative, high-quality health care is accessible to all individuals, especially underserved populations such as the chronically ill, frail, elderly and disabled, who are often overlooked in a constantly-changing health care environment,” said Dr. Sumir Sahgal.

As part of this crucial expansion, EssenMed House Calls will be working closely with Dr. Mark Dashevskiy, a beloved and acclaimed Brooklyn-based geriatrician. Dr. Dashevskiy brings to the EssenMed House Calls team an impressive record of house call experience as well as fluency in the Russian language.  As the Sheepshead Bay area boasts a significant population of Russian speakers, Dr. Dashevskiy’s abilities will help ensure that EssenMed House Calls is able to effectively provide in-home care for a larger cultural spectrum of patients in need. Russian is the latest addition to EssenMed House Calls’ ever growing résumé of multilingual support joining such languages as English, Spanish, and Mandarin.

Patients with EssenMed House Calls enjoy a variety of necessary in-home services including: routine care, chronic disease management, specialty care, diagnostic testing, and interim care for those recently discharged from a hospital or nursing home. EssenMed House Calls also offers care management, a service that goes beyond what a patient traditionally receives during a physician visit. EssenMed House Calls providers not only give the patient quality medical attention, but also identify any health risks in the home that could hinder a patient’s complete comfort and recovery.  Such meticulous care, in coordination with caregivers, translators, and social workers, guarantees patients have a full and robust system of support during their road to recovery.

Moving forward, EssenMed House Calls plans to continue expansion efforts and widen its service area to make efficient in-home healthcare a reality for as many homebound communities as possible.
