Geriatric Medicine at Summit Medical Group Arizona provides exceptional elder care to prevent, diagnose, and treat the health problems and special needs of older adults.
Doctors who specialize in geriatrics are called geriatricians. They treat a wide variety of diseases and conditions as well as the social issues and functional decline that the elderly often experience. Geriatric doctors are board certified in family medicine or internal medicine, after which they receive specialized training in geriatric medicine.
The goal in geriatrics medicine is to improve the elderly patient’s ability to function and improve the quality of life of the patient, family, and caregivers.
Dr. Kessler participates in all aspects of care to ensure the physical and emotional well-being of each patient.
Doctors of internal medicine, or internists, diagnose and treat diseases in adults. Sometimes known as a general practitioner or the “doctor’s doctor,” internists often work with surgeons, obstetricians, and other physicians to help solve complicated primary care problems in diagnosis and treatment. They also coordinate patient care where it is needed, including in the office, clinic, hospital, intensive care, or nursing home.
Internists at Summit Medical Group Arizona are primary care physicians who are experts in treating patients with common as well as rare diseases. They skillfully diagnose problems and manage severe chronic illnesses in patients who have more than one condition or disease.
Our experienced internists / general practitioners consider all aspects of a patient’s health. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, they promote good health by teaching patients about wellness.
