Overview: Our mission is to promote healthy aging by keeping older adults well, active and independent for as long as possible. Patients 65 years and older have unique medical needs, and the staff at our Senior Clinic not only recognizes those needs, but are focused on proactively protecting and preserving quality of life for our region’s older patients. Just as pediatricians specialize in the care of children, geriatricians are physicians who specialize in the care of older adults. Our physicians have specific training in geriatrics.

Our Senior Clinic is easily accessed by convenient first floor location inside Carondelet Medical Building A.

We provide primary care consultations or wellness screenings in a variety of areas. Additionally, we can coordinate treatment with your primary care physician as well. We are currently accepting new Medicare eligible patients 65 or older. Patients younger than 65 may qualify based on condition. No physician referral is required.
