GeriatricsAs bodies age, they change.

Our elder care team specializes in helping seniors navigate these changes by providing primary care for adults over the age of 65.

Geriatricians are your partners in helping you manage the complex and often interrelated health conditions that can come with aging. For example, your geriatrician may conduct a geriatric assessment, a thorough evaluation of your physical and mental health and abilities. This assessment includes evaluation of your nutrition, hearing, vision, and any issues with incontinence, balance or memory.

Geriatricians collaborate with other specialists at First Choice Health Centers as needed to treat conditions associated with aging, including dementia, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, stroke and osteoarthritis.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center we are proud to provide our extensive services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. We accept Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances, as well as offer a sliding-fee scale for income eligible and uninsured patients.
