About Mark J. Cacciamani, M.D.

Dr. Mark Cacciamani has always had an interest in serving the underserved.  He took a yearoff before attending medical school to volunteer in Southern California, aiding the Spanish-speaking community that didn’t have access to medical care.  While working for the University ofUtah clinic, Dr. Cacciamani realized his place was not with the “worried well” and wanted to get back to his roots of serving those in need.  Dr. Cacciamani quit working for a conventional clinic and founded House Call Doctors in 2004  where he currently serves the elderly and disabled.

Why a House Call Practice:

  • More care is not always better care.   There are few areas in medicine that can result in higher patient satisfaction, and decreased utilization while maintaining quality measures.
  • Here at House Call Doctors we take a collaborative approach and utilize a person centered care plan to direct our delivery of health care in a place and in a manner that makes the most sense.   Our patients often have barriers to care that would otherwise result in care being given in Emergency Rooms and Instacares.
