What do Sasquatch, The Loch Ness Monster and Dr. Vaclaw have in common?
Don’t say they are all ugly monsters!
Dr. Vaclaw is a house call foot doctor who, like the hairy, woods wandering beast and sea monster, is impossible to find and seems more like antiquated folklore.
A foot doctor that makes house calls to individuals’ homes? More people believe the Easter Bunny and Leprechauns exist.
Dr. Vaclaw of Foot and Ankle Specialists of The Woodlands has dedicated two days a week to go visit patients who are unable to come to his office. There are many patients who, due to age, disability, illness or other reasons are unable to leave their homes to visit doctors. Home Health agencies provide medical care to these people and have requested the help of specialists like Podiatrists to come care for their patients’ needs. Foot wounds, infections and fungal toenails are common problems amongst the thousands of home health patients that are served across North Houston. Very few doctors make house calls anymore because of the time and cost of travel. The inconvenience of leaving the office outweighs the benefits.
Dr. Vaclaw makes house calls to patients north of I-10 as far west as Waller, as far east as Huffman, and as north as Willis. As a traveling foot doctor, he is able to treat people in a much more intimate setting, getting to see family pictures and heirlooms. Patients open up to share life experiences and personal trials.
One WWII veteran was recently inducted into the Guinness Book of Records and shares with his home health podiatrist photos of the event and other memorabilia from his long and fortunate life. Dr. Vaclaw has stumbled upon house calls to world leaders, former athletes and war veterans here in Houston. Visits like this make traveling to do house calls more enjoyable.
If you find yourself looking for antiquated relics like cassette players, stick-shift cars, and word processors-take house call doctors off that list. We DO exist.
