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.

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.

I have been searching for a geriatric doc for 2 years. One who doesn't believe that pills are the answer to everything. One who makes eye contact and actually listens to your concerns. This is the doctor I have been looking for! She is very current on issues relating to older folks. Our first appointment was long as she was very thorough. She asked me over and over if I had any questions. Very easy to talk to. Her office is temporary right now, so it is a little hard to find (2520 Ave K ste100) but sooooooooo worth it. I am so happy to have FINALLY found a doctor that I feel good about going to!
Dr. Blessing has disappeared. We just started going to her a few months ago. Since that time, we went for our physicals and the staff said they didn't know where she was and they had been trying to reach her. They rescheduled for the next day and she didn't even bother to apologize. When our pharmacy tried to reach her about our meds there was no response. We went to her office and there was a note on the door saying she was evicted due to non-payment of rent. Needless to say, we're going to another doctor. I don't understand how she can leave her patients high and dry like this.
My first appointment for my Mom was great. The nurse and doctor spent times with her for a long time. The experience with My Dad first appointment was totally different. The nurse took us to the room right way for checking and questions. We didn't see the doctor came to talk to my Dad as should be for new patient until after about 40 minutes. She didn't do normal check for him as my Mom. Only said that will let us know the blood result. We received the result and asked for follow up. The second follow up appointment was the same as the first time. The doctor didn't come to see him after about 40 minutes. She did not even do any checking to my Dad. She just said need another blood draw for more test and let us know the result. Not sure why our experiences were so different for my Dad. He was not very happy. Took a little long time to have available follow up schedule.
