What Is Geriatrics?
Geriatrics is the specialty of medicine that focuses on the unique healthcare needs of older individuals who are typically over the age of 65. As people age, their bodies naturally go through numerous changes. Any medical conditions that are present can worsen while new ones may develop over time. Additionally, the cognitive function and physical abilities of older adults may decline, which can lead to more challenges with their care. At Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center, Dr. Charles Armstrong and Dr. Margaret Hart offer geriatric medicine to help support you and your family. For more information, call our Chandler, AZ practice to set up an appointment.
What Can I Expect from Geriatric Care?
When you come to our Chandler, AZ office for your initial consultation, Dr. Hart or Dr. Armstrong may perform a geriatric assessment, which is used to evaluate your cognitive function, mental and physical health, fall risk factors, and functional abilities. This will enable us to determine the kind of treatment and overall care you will require in order to maintain your quality of life. There are several medical conditions and concerns that can be brought on by the natural aging process, including dementia, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and urinary incontinence. Other chronic illnesses, like arthritis, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), may also require advanced care to manage.
Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center Reviews
They're a great team. They treat you as a human being, not as a number, they do care about your life and that's why I'm giving 5 stars. I love all the staff ❤️ thank you!

Dr Hart was experienced, knowledgeable and thorough. She has a plan with health checkups to monitor any changes in my health status. Easy to book. Easy to contact.
This place does ask for reviews which is why I am doing one, I wouldn’t be doing a review if the service I received was bad. This has been one of the best doctors I’ve visited in a long time. I don’t think they are a specialist by any means but the doctor did really try to help me and I really appreciate that. They did thorough labs and did their best to identify anything wrong with me. Their staff are all very calm and friendly. The practice is very religious forward but they are not a church and do not try to preach their values to you so please don’t let this discourage you. I will highly recommend Dr Armstrong to anyone I know as they are a very caring practice and truly listened to my problems. Not to mention their staff went over and above with referrals and helping me out. Thanks so much to the team at heart of Mary’s.
