What is a Geriatrician?


A Geriatrician is an attending physician for older patients while they are in the hospital. This group of highly trained and experienced geriatricians are experts at managing the complex care of older adults, and they work closely with other physician specialists to achieve the best results for each patient.

Our geriatricians act as liaisons between patients and their loved ones, their medical teams, and their nursing homes or senior living communities. They keep everybody in the loop concerning treatment plans, day-to-day progress, and any necessary follow-up arrangements.
