Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Geriatric medicine provides primary care physicians for older adults. Our supportive geriatricians offer preventive care, as well as diagnose, treat and manage a broad range of diseases and conditions that affect this unique population.
Wellstar geriatric physicians treat conditions affecting older adults like dementia, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, hearing and vision loss. They specialize in your total wellbeing, caring for you as a whole person, not just a condition or symptom.
Using an individual approach, they strive to manage existing conditions while decreasing the risk of other health issues. Wellstar’s geriatric doctors can help with fall prevention, depression, nutrition concerns, driving challenges, pain management, medication issues and life transitions. They also help manage ongoing conditions, like heart disease and diabetes, and also provide wound care.
