Dr. Gerald W Ondash has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- 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.

Dr. Ondash is friendly and makes the patient glad to be there and doctored by him. He gives great advice, AND LISTENS TO THE PATIENT. To me, that is important in any Dr./Patient reltionship. In fact, he's about the only Dr. I have ever had that has listened. He spends all the time needed with a patient.
Dr. Ondash is Mom's doctor and we love him and his staff. Mom has always had a short wait, the staff is pleasant/efficient and Dr. Ondash is experienced and takes time to make sure all my and Mom's questions are answered. He saw her frequently in the beginning and it makes me feel better to know Mom is in his care.
I had several symptoms and took the time to make a list so that I wouldn't forget anything. I hoped that having the full picture would help diagnose what was wrong with me. When presented with my list I was told to pick one as he didn't have time to look at all of them. BTW I had a gluten allergy. This doctor didn't have a clue and was rude. That was my last appointment with him.
