Our mission is to provide comprehensive geriatric care to community dwelling elderly within the framework of Geriatrics Fellowship training. The Geriatric practice stresses a multi-disciplinary approach towards patient care. The goal is to maintain our patients independently in the community as long as is possible. The evaluation is tailored to the individual patient and includes a complete history and physical exam, a mental status exam, functional status assessment, psychosocial history and discussion about advanced directives.
