    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.

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

The old-fashioned GP is not extinct!

I cannot praise this man enough: He is one of the busiest doctors I know, running a large multi-practitioner medical practice, while at the same time managing his own very heavy load of patients. Yet he ALWAYS has time to promptly return a call, cordially focus on each of his patients needs, or otherwise remind us that personal care and attention are a large part of the cure. Add to this his enormous font of experience and clinical knowledge, and he becomes an invaluable resource to me and my family.
