Geriatric Medicine

We focus on the medical care of older adults (usually over age 55, but sometimes younger) with complex or multiple medical problems and who may also be experiencing psychological and social problems, and a decline in functional ability to care for themselves. We usually work in collaboration with other health care disciplines to screen and diagnose physical and psychosocial impairments, and functional disabilities in frail senior citizens.
