Geriatrics is a specialty that focuses on medical issues and diseases of aging. A Geriatrician most often treats people over the age of 70 who are either healthy or have multiple medical issues. Medical care becomes more complex as people age and accumulate medical conditions. A Geriatrician is an expert in how these medical conditions impact one another, in how each medication interacts with the other and how both medical conditions and medications uniquely affect people as they age.
