Comprehensive Care, and Caring, for Seniors

Welcome to Geriatrics at Crystal Run Healthcare. Geriatric medicine is a sub-specialty of internal medicine concerned with the health and well-being of older adults. Geriatric doctors specialize in diagnosing, managing, and treating diseases and disorders that affect elderly patients. As people age, medical care becomes more complex. It’s common for seniors to have several ailments that affect multiple systems. It’s also common for older adults to take multiple medications—hence, the need for the separate discipline of geriatric medicine. A geriatrician is trained to deal with overlapping conditions, particularly disorders that might be unique to older adults, and to prescribe treatment that lowers the risk of interactions and complications.

Crystal Run Healthcare provides advanced geriatric care in New York. The goal of our geriatric medicine team is to help seniors achieve healthy aging. Our geriatricians diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and conditions that require a special approach for aging patients. Our geriatric specialists are trained in internal medicine, which means they’re able to serve as primary care providers for older adults.

At Crystal Run, our geriatricians focus on conditions specific to aging, including geriatric assessment and rehabilitation, preventive medicine, management of patients in long-term care settings, and psycho-social, ethical, legal, and economic issues pertinent to geriatric patients. They give special attention to situations of special concern, including falls, incontinence, preoperative assessment and postoperative management, cerebrovascular disease, dementia, sensory impairment, and other cognitive and affective changes that occur with aging.

At Crystal Run Healthcare, your primary care provider is responsible for managing and coordinating all of your healthcare needs. Your PCP will coordinate any care you may need from our renowned staff of Crystal Run specialists, including surgeons, gynecologists, and other physicians, to help solve complicated problems in diagnosis and treatment.

PCPs coordinate patient care where needed, whether it is in the office, hospital, intensive care unit, or nursing home. Plus, our sophisticated electronic health records system digitally links your primary care provider with any specialist in our practice. They can see and share your information instantly and can work together to bring you more responsive, immediate care.
