NEW YORK (WABC) -- Who says no one makes house calls anymore?
Meet Dr. Alisa Kauffman. She is a geriatric house-call dentist. Since 2000, she's been caring for elderly patients who can't make it to a dentist's office.
Dr. Kauffman says "it's not just a business, it's more like a family practice."
Most of her patients are in their 80s and 90s. Three days a week, she packs up two bags with all of her dental equipment and heads out to appointments in Manhattan.
Most days she says she uses a car sharing app to get around, but sometimes she takes walks or takes the subway like any other New Yorker.
Dr. Kauffman says her dream is to see geriatric house-calls being made across the country.
Considering the aging population, she says "it just makes sense."
