If your goal is to grow older gracefully and in good health, you have come to the right place. Drs. Lawrence and LaGrelius are specifically trained and certified to care for geriatric patients. Aging is a beautiful time in life, but it also comes with challenges. Our geriatrics training will guide you and/or your loved one through this journey. We aim to increase longevity and focus on quality of life by providing optimal preventive and disease-specific care. Many primary care doctors or specialists in other fields do not always understand common issues facing aging patients.
A geriatric doctor, or “geriatrician,” has special training in understanding how the body ages and important health, social and psychological concerns that arise during these years. Through this understanding, we can provide a specialized care plan that optimizes your well-being. We manage a multitude of geriatric-related health conditions:
- Alzheimer’s disease & other dementias
- Deconditioning & weakness
- Heart & vascular disease
- Home safety & environment assessments
- Kidney disease
- Neurological disease, such as stroke or Parkinson’s disease
- Periodontal disease
- Urinary problems
- Women's health
- Wound care
