Welcome to Practicioners at Home Direct

PHD, or Practicioners at Home Direct, was established to bring Quality medical and personal care to the Medicare populations of our communities. Based in Manatee and Sarasota counties, our doctors of combined 40 years plus medical experience visit most assisted and skilled living facilities(ALFs or SNFs), as well as homes in specified areas. If needed, services such as blood work, Xrays, heart EKGs and other tests can be arranged at the patient's living quarters. Should patients require hospitalizations, we have arrangements made for admissions to our local community hospitals' hospitalists.

We do our best to visit patients on their scheduled days. But please keep in mind that we are driving throughout your communities. Should emergencies arise  our time frame will change going to that site first.

We eagerly look forward to working with you. We also attempt  to remain in contact with the patient, as well as their designated family spokesman or POA(Power of Attorney) if required.  In fact, we encourage you to be at our visit if timing allows.

Please contact the office during regular hours for your appointment. Before your visit, we will confirm addresses, contact numbers, family members, and insurances.

Stay healthy!!!
