    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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Recommend finding another doctor

Does not spend time talking with patients, prescribes medications without fully analyzing the issue, overmedicates, very hard to get an appointment, and does not put the wellbeing of her patients first. I believe our parents/grandparents deserve better!

Can not recommend this doctor

Terrible bedside manner for geriatric patients. She prescribed on several occasions, the wrong medication for the diagnosis. Spends more time inputing on her computer during office visit than with the patient.
