    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.

    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.

Excellent care

Father in law is at an assisted living facility and has been in his care for almost 2 years. Dr. Arun is excellent--very professional and dedicated to gerontology. He cares for his patients and is very clear explaining medical situations. I'd recommend highly for elder care.
