Geriatric medicine is a specialty that focuses on medical issues and diseases of aging and old age. A doctor who practices geriatric medicine, known as a geriatrician, treats people over the age of 60. These patients can be healthy or have medical issues.

Medical care becomes more complex as you age and encounter more medical conditions. That’s why switching to a doctor who specializes in senior health can be a good idea. Our geriatricians are experts in how medical conditions impact one another, how each medication interacts with others, and how both medical conditions and medications uniquely affect you as you age.
