Geriatrics Q & A

What is geriatrics?

Geriatrics offers a specialized focus on the health of the elderly, age 65 and above. As you get older, your health risks increase. The good news is that average life expectancy has continued to increase over the years. Geriatric medicine might be one of the reasons that the numbers are continuing to move in a positive direction.

However, with about 85% of aging Americans having at least one chronic health issue and 60% having at least two, you need attentive care for your health and wellness.

The team at Stephen Renzi Medical PC aims to catch issues early and provide preventive care. If you have health problems, they identify the root cause and develop a customized plan to meet your specific needs. 

Geriatrics promotes an active and healthy life as you age. Your geriatrics specialists help you achieve this goal and maintain it.
