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
A friendly, effective, and efficient visit. Highly recommend.
Being Autistic, this is my first experience on my own with a Doctor's Office from Finding to Appointment. I can say, without a doubt that I really like the staff, they explained when I asked and I truly look forward to returning. I even enjoyed all my staff interactions. Especially when my veins were difficult to locate, the staff member trying was extra attentive to my request to not fish and did a fantastic job, like the rest of the staff I encountered. I look forward to my next visit and believe this is where my care is best done.
He made sure to give me a Blood Lab . Good Doctor
Dr. Armstrong was very kind and had great communication skills He was extremely cautious and thoughtful of his plan I would 100% recommend him I seriously hate reviewing anything but he deserves a shout out
Great experience! I plan to make Dr. Armstrong my new primary care physician.
