What kind of doctor treats the elderly?


A general primary care physician can treat the elderly and provide primary care, but there’s a specific kind of doctor that treats the elderly exclusively, and that’s a geriatric physician. If you or a loved one is elderly, a geriatric physician is the kind of doctor to see for specialized primary healthcare.

The elderly are especially susceptible to chronic conditions like cancer and heart disease, as well as some illnesses like pneumonia, but a geriatric physician is especially qualified to address such conditions. In some patient cases, short-term care is enough, while in other cases, long-term care is necessary for a patient. Dr. Nassar MD is an experienced geriatric doctor in Redlands, CA, and is well qualified to provide comprehensive geriatric care!

At what age should you switch to a geriatric physician?


A geriatric physician treats seniors exclusively, and seniors are people age 65 or older. At 65 or any time after is when you should consider switching to a geriatric physician. You don’t have to stop seeing your current primary care physician if you don’t want to; you can see both your current physician and a geriatric physician if you like. At least consider getting the specialized care a geriatric physician provides!

A geriatric physician provides the services a general primary care physician provides, but these services are optimized for the elderly, and the geriatric physician is more capable of addressing chronic conditions like heart disease, arthritis, and others.

Why should I see a geriatric doctor?


You may want to or need to see a geriatric doctor about a chronic condition you have. A geriatric doctor is especially capable of addressing high blood cholesterol, chronic bronchitis, respiratory infections, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, or another chronic condition that commonly affects the elderly. These conditions can be prevented in the first place by a geriatric physician.

Also, a geriatric doctor can treat minor injuries, minor illnesses, illnesses like pneumonia, and more. On top of that, a geriatric doctor can provide other invaluable primary care services like immunizations, physical exams, continual care for certain conditions, cancer screenings, preventive healthcare, and others. If you need to be referred to any kind of specialist, the doctor can provide the referral.

Basically, the geriatric doctor is the best kind of primary care physician for the elderly. You’ll have fully comprehensive primary healthcare with a geriatric doctor.
