“I believe that open communication and respect are key to a good provider/patient relationship. Home visits allow me to get to know the patient’s daily routine and to assess what is needed to provide a safe environment and to provide the proper medical care for the patient.” – Melissa Kisner, FNP

Q&A with Melissa

Question: Does insurance pay for home visits?

Melissa: Yes. Call a DMC Financial Advocate for information about your insurance plan coverage. 304.637.3125

Question: What care services are available for home visits?

Melissa: Generally anything a patient has done at a routine provider visit in a clinic is available in the home. Some of these services include patient vitals, lab work, wound care, urine screenings, medication management and filling of medication boxes. I also write referrals for additional care services like home health, durable medical equipment, physical therapy, hospice, and referrals to medical specialists.

Question: How long are home visits?

Melissa: The initial visit is scheduled for one hour. Follow up visits are generally one-half hour depending on what the patient needs.

Question: How do home visits benefit patients?

Melissa: Home visits are beneficial for patients who are homebound or who have transportation barriers. Home assessments also help identify mental, social and environmental needs not easily assessed in the clinic setting.

Why Choose Us?

Nurse Practioner Melissa Kisner, FNP, helps patients be aware of their health between regular doctor appointments through a physical exam, preventive screenings, and review of their medications and medical history. Social, emotional and environmental assessments help identify needs that cannot generally be determined in an office setting. “I’m looking for any concerns that require immediate medical attention,” said Kisner.
