What does a geriatric primary care doctor do?


This kind of professional provides first-level, general healthcare. With this kind of care, patients can be treated for common health conditions like mild illnesses and minor injuries, so a primary care doctor is a great professional to see when you have a cold or a minor sprain. But primary care doctors can do more than this; they also provide physical exams and immunizations to help prevent illnesses and injuries from occurring in the first place, and they can network with medical specialists, like cardiologists, to provide comprehensive patient care. In addition to all that, primary care doctors can provide continual care for patients with chronic conditions, like diabetes.

What kind of doctor treats the elderly?


As we all age, we become more susceptible to chronic conditions, like arthritis, and some other conditions, like pneumonia. These conditions can be serious in elderly people, so they require professional and specialized treatment. This kind of treatment is what internal medicine doctors provide.

An internal medicine doctor is a more specialized kind of primary care doctor. Internal medicine doctors specialize in treating the common and chronic conditions that tend to affect elderly people the most. The doctors are able to provide short-term care, such as by prescribing medications, or long-term care if a patient needs continual care for a chronic condition.

When an internal medicine doctor completes an internal medicine residency, he or she is then called an internist. Dr. Nassar MD is an internist. He can treat chronic conditions like respiratory infections, cardiovascular disease, chronic bronchitis, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, hypertension, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, and others. It’s important to note that some of these conditions can be life-threatening in seniors, so sometimes it’s necessary for seniors to go to the ER (emergency room) for care. Much of the time, the conditions aren’t life-threatening and just require monitoring and symptom management. Dr. Nassar can provide these services. He can also help you prevent chronic conditions by providing services like cancer screenings, and prevent common conditions from occurring too. The doctor is fully capable of providing comprehensive geriatric care.
