What is Geriatric Medicine?
Geriatric medicine is a sub-specialty of family medicine or internal medicine. It is medical treatment by a physician with special knowledge of the aging process and special skills in the diagnostic, therapeutic, preventive, and rehabilitative aspects of illness in the elderly.
Caring for the elderly is truly our life’s work and inspires us to continue doing what we do each and every day. Whether comforting an older person through an injury or illness or providing long-term healthcare and advice, we absolutely love interacting with the very wisest among us!
