Specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Great Doc

He has found problems before they were bad. He found a malignant tumor about 2 and 1/2 inches long in my Kidney before it spread outside the kidney. I had the kidney removed and did not require any chemo or radiation therapy. That was 7 years ago and I am still cancer free. He cares about his patients. One night about 10:30 pm, he call our house after my wife had had some tests, and told her to go to the hospital immediately because he was reviewing the test results and her iron was very low. Any other doctor probably would not have been reviewing those test results at that time of night. Oh yes, he met us at the hospital. Her OBGYN wanted to give her blood(possibly aids or hepatitis) but Brent suggested high doses of iron, we took his advise and all turned out well.
