About Our Services

What is Geriatrics?

Geriatrics medicine focuses on achieving the highest possible level of physical and functional well-being for older adults, preventing disability and disease, and promoting independence as aging occurs.

What is The Role of a Geriatrician?

While you may think of a geriatrician as a specialist, in fact he or she is a primary care physician specially trained to prevent and manage the unique and, oftentimes, multiple health concerns of adults aged 55 and over. Older adults may react to illness and disease differently than younger adults. Whether you are in excellent or declining health, our geriatricians can provide you with individualized care to help you achieve your optimal health goals.

Why Should I Seek a Provider Trained in Geriatrics?

Some of the reasons may include:

  • You want to maximize your health and productivity as you age
  • You want an expert in the care of problems affecting older people
  • You have noticed a change in your physical abilities or your mental status, such as memory
  • You are experiencing falls or falling has become a concern to you
  • You require special attention to manage several medical problems or multiple medications
  • Your family members and friends are feeling considerable stress and strain as caregivers
