AHN geriatric primary care physicians and specialists determine your current health and risk factors, provide care for conditions you’re experiencing, and help connect you and your caregivers with resources to support your health goals.
Our doctors prioritize learning about your current health, care preferences, and goals. Then you’ll work together to achieve those goals and meet you where you are on your health journey. We review and streamline your medications. We’ll help identify and prevent any potential issues that are a normal part of aging, including issues with thinking and memory.
