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.

Dr. El-Salawy is an excellent choice for a gentleman or lady wishing to see a physician in the field of geriatric medicine or primary care. He is exceedingly knowledgeable and brings his broad medical knowledge to bear in helping a patient to understand his/her health status. He will explain everything in words that you will understand instead of highly technical language. He is also compassionate and empathic in understanding how it feels to have a medical condition. If you have recently had a procedure by a surgeon, he will ask you how you are feeling as a result. After reviewing your medical history and current status, he will recommend a medication or course of action and tell you why. If you choose to follow your own path, he will not belittle or harass you for disagreeing with him. In addition to his perfect English, he is able to communicate fluently with any patient whose primary language may be Italian, Russian, or Arabic. My wife and I have been very happy with his medical care.
