As Internist, we also specialize in geriatric care. We possess the special knowledge of the aging process and special skills in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness in the elderly, such as memory loss, depression, functional decline, social issues and chronic medical conditions.
We care for geriatric patients in our medical office, in nursing homes, and in the hospital. All of our patients share a common desire to be listened to and cared for, and we are dedicated to meeting those needs. We are trained to recognize the unusual presentations of illness and drug interactions, to utilize resources such as community social services, and to assist with special ethical issues in the care of the elderly.
