  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

Fantastic physician!

After years of what I now consider to have been substandard care in comparison, finally a physician who takes the time to listen and address issues. On a personal level, she truly is a wonderful person and on professional level, she is top notch and you really get a sense of how much she enjoys being a doctor. Dealing with her front office sometimes poses a challenge but when you get in front of her, you get her undivided attention and superb quality care. I am almost hesitant to tell others about her for fear of her becoming over-subscribed!

Patient

I have some very serious medical problems and am generally seen at a #1 hospital. I have come to trust Dr. Sawires more than most of the doctors I see there. She treats the whole person, not just the parts. I'd recommend her to anyone who wants a serious, no-nonsense doctor.

Very thorough, caring, and knowledgable

I saw Dr. Sawires because my regular doc was on vacation. She immediately identified that a thorough history had never been taken, and spent 45 minutes with me understanding my history and conditions. She is up to date in her medical knowledge, citing recent studies as well as her personal experience. She has a particular focus on women's health, and has a very personable style.Over all, Dr. Sawires is a great doctor, and I'm happy I found her.
