"Making House Calls a Part of Life"

Doctor House Calls in New York City

Dr. pamela barton, MD

I make house calls in New York City and beyond, providing meticulous long term and short term medical care for patients with a variety of illnesses and conditions. For established patients I am available 24/7 for calls, emails or visits.

Doctor house calls save costly and unnecessary ambulance trips, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and premature nursing home placement.

I work closely with home health nurses, medical equipment companies, pharmacies, and other health professionals, to assure that all your medical care is coordinated and timely.

I have been making house calls since 2007 and bring years of practical experience to every visit.

A Doctor Who Goes the Extra Mile

If you can't get to the doctor's office, the doctor - and more - can come to you.

I arrange for necessary tests, including lab work, ultrasounds, and even x-rays to be done in the home. Perhaps you have just been discharged from the hospital or have received a difficult diagnosis. I will help you navigate this new territory and make sure you get optimal care.


Board Certified Care at Home

I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and in Hospice & Palliative Medicine. I practice medical care oriented toward comfort in every dimension, treating patients facing challenging medical conditions, no matter what their circumstances.

I provide expert symptom management, timely assessments, and focused treatment of problems large and small. My care comforts the patient and eases the burden on family and other caregivers. I am truly responsive to everyone's need for privacy, dignity and kindness.

Medical Conditions


Dr. Barton’s intelligent and loving presence was a great comfort.
We will be forever grateful to Dr. Pam for the wisdom, the comfort and care she provided . . . . Her humor, her patience and her very humanity kept us focused and calm in the maelstrom. . . . that’s how it is having Dr. Pam around - it’s like wind under your wings.
Dr. Barton was quickly able to sort out the situation. She walked this rough and rocky path with us, providing not only the medical care needed at the oddest of hours, but providing as well counsel, advice, and all manner of comfort.
Your kind and gentle approach is just what Mom needed to feel reassured. . . . You put us in touch with an entire at-home network of medical care professionals so she did not need to leave her home for blood work, x-rays, physical therapy, the eye doctor and even the dentist. You made this process so easy.
I can only say that it was a miracle that I was given Dr. Barton’s name at a time of extreme stress and helplessness in my life. . . . Dr. Barton’s help was immeasurable - not enough words suffice. She is/was one of my heroes. I will be forever grateful.
Dr. Barton’s compassion and holistic view of the patient and of the process of dying made of this most difficult of situations a sacred journey which we will all remember with gratitude.
