Specialties

Dr. Steven J Paulissen has the following 2 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    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 to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Most thorough and truthful Dr. ever!

I've been a patient of Dr. Paulissen since about 1990. I have liked his demeanor, his promptness, his openness in conversations with me. He answers all my questions and tell me when something isn't needed. Best of all he doesn't hand out antibiotics like candy! He sees me every time I feel I need anti biotics and gives them to me ONLY when I need them. The other thing I love is that he is always open to new patients when I ask about a family or friend needing a doctor.

Satisfaction

I have seen Dr Paulissen for 19 yr, not until recently have I ever had any problem getting an appointment with him. His staff is always kind and caring and I have always had kindness from the front desk and billing department too. I find him very easy to talk to and always positive. He trys something and if it doesn't work he tries something else. He never gives up, he always says if its effecting my lifestyle we need to try to find a way to stop it from doing so or a way to work around it!
