Older adults (seniors, geriatrics) have special health needs. Oftentimes, they have several health conditions that need extra attention and a thoughtful approach. As we age, our bodies do not process medications in the same manner and that means those patients on medications can more likely have reactions or side effects. A prudent provider understands the need to provide more vigilance.
In addition, age can bring changes in how our bodies process food, how stress is managed, and emotional responses. Dr. Kathleen specializes in geriatric primary care. She is happy to meet with any senior patient who needs a little extra time with a provider; periodic consultations are welcomed. Dr. Kathleen is happy to work with your usual primary care provider.
Whether you need a full-time provider or just a once-in-awhile visit to review a complex health conditions or review options in a current medical concern, she is there to help you!
