Dr. Ernest Brown, Founder and CEO of Doctors To You, has embarked on a new concept of biking to his house-call patients rather than driving.

There are obvious benefits of having an electric bicycle as an option for transportation, especially in a city like Washington DC: exercise, avoiding traffic jams, better for the environment.

“I had been thinking about using a regular bike for house calls for years. The problem was I couldn’t be showing up to patients houses huffing and puffing from cycling, I needed a better option,” said Brown.

Hybrid Petals, founded by Alan Levine, specializes in the selling and renting of electric bicycles.

This model provides five levels of pedal assist modes, wider wheels, and it’s lithium battery allows for 30-40 miles of riding between charges. It also has an extended cargo tail which is perfect for transporting his black medical bag and medication bag.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

“The only equipment that I cannot carry on the bike vs. when I’m in my car is an AED however, most buildings are equipped with them,” Brown explained. “I also cannot bring IV fluid because of the weight.”

This will allow him to still be able to reach patients if they need him during the mayhem. [/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]However, because of the high cost of the electric bicycle and the logistics of the large area that he serves, Dr. Brown won’t be able to solely rely on the bike but it is a good alternative for when driving isn’t an option.
