Staying healthy and feeling good are important at any age. As we grow older, we encounter new life changes along the way – including career moves, retirement, children moving out or away, the loss of loved ones and personal physical changes. A key to staying healthy lies in how we manage these changes.

Geriatric medicine is focused on the care of patients over the age of 65. Physicians specializing in geriatrics understand the complex health issues affecting seniors, how the body changes over the years and how medicines may affect people differently. Our geriatrician cares for most of your primary healthcare needs and will refer to specialty physicians as needed, including cardiologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, psychiatrists, neurologists and others.
