    a visit from ...

    Hi

    She's having a visit from her doctor.


    Does it mean a doctor comes to her or she goes to his office?

    Not a teacher only a native.

    The doctor is going to the woman.

    If it was the other way round, the sentence would be something like, 'She is going to visit the doctor'.
