Geriatrics Clinic is not just a primary care clinic for elderly patients.  The approach and goals are different than primary care.  The emphasis is on FUNCTION, and not just medical diagnosis.  Whereas a general internal medicine clinic focuses on disease management, geriatrics focuses on patient management.  With many of our patients, medical diagnoses are of secondary concern, while we address functional issues, including safety, nutrition, abuse or medication management.
