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

on condition. No physician referral is required.
