What does geriatrician mean?


A geriatrician, or geriatric physician, is a primary care physician specialized in treating the elderly. If you or a loved one is elderly, a geriatrician is the kind of doctor to see.

The elderly can be quite susceptible to chronic conditions like heart disease and arthritis, as well as certain illnesses like pneumonia, but a geriatrician is especially qualified to help a patient address or manage such conditions. Sometimes providing short-term care is sufficient, while other times long-term care is necessary to control a condition. Dr. Nassar MD is a geriatrician here at the office of Mohamed Nassar MD!

At what age should you go to a geriatric physician?


This kind of physician treats seniors, and seniors are people age 65 or older. You should go see a geriatric physician if you’re 65 or older and don’t have a primary care physician right now, or if you have one but want specialized geriatric care too.

A geriatric physician can provide the services a general primary care physician provides, but such services will be optimized for seniors. Also, the geriatric physician is more capable of helping seniors with chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and others. If you have a chronic condition, you should consider seeing a geriatric physician about it. You may have to see one about it.

What does a geriatric doctor treat?


A geriatric doctor can treat cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, chronic bronchitis, respiratory infections, hypertension, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, and other chronic conditions that affect seniors. The doctor is also able to treat minor injuries, minor illnesses, illnesses like pneumonia, and more. On top of all that, the doctor will be able to provide invaluable primary care services like physical exams, immunizations, continual care for chronic conditions, cancer screenings, preventive healthcare (to prevent common and chronic conditions), and others.

Basically, a geriatric doctor treats the conditions that affect seniors, including those conditions that more commonly affect seniors, like arthritis. A geriatric doctor is fully capable of providing comprehensive care for a senior.
