Default Doctor who makes house calls?

I had heard there was going to be a young doctor in the Simpsonville area who makes house calls. Does anyone know anything about this person? We are moving there with my parents to be near my own grown kids and this option would be awesome for us [could cover 4 folks in one visit]

Anymore medicare does not pay to send a nurse out to do protimes [for my wheelchair bound mother], my parents do not qualfy for medicaid [which does or pays for transport which is very expensive] and I have to take off work to get them to the doctor [they are in their 80s] and you have to go to the doctor a lot when you get over 80............it is much more opressive than when you have small kids.

Not necessarily. My mother is 80 and plays tennis once a week.
