Geriatric Medicine

Geriatric medicine is a branch of internal medicine focused on the care of older adults. TPMG’s board certified and fellowship trained geriatricians provide comprehensive primary care services such as prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Aging adults experience a higher risk of some chronic diseases. TPMG’s geriatricians are vital for the diagnosis and treatment of multiple complex disorders associated with aging, including Alzheimer’s, dementia, and hypertension. They are trained to understand the presentation of disease relative to normal aging.

Our geriatricians understand the importance of our patient’s autonomy and endeavor to ensure you maintain your functional independence by focusing on preventative interventions. Adults who see a geriatrician are less likely to end up in the hospital because our physicians are already on the lookout for indicators of disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ – Choosing a Primary Care Provider

What is primary care provider?

Primary care providers or physicians are your partners in all aspects of health, including mental health, physical health, and emotional health. Through each phase of your life, look to your primary care provider, your go-to for medical questions, treatment, and specialist referral.

What should I expect from my primary care provider?

You should expect a long-term relationship that includes trust, treatment, and accessibility.

Why is having a primary care provider so important?

Having a primary care provider is essential to your health. Primary care providers will guide you in making the best, informed healthcare decisions. They learn everything about you – your medical history and your family medical history and start treatment from there.

Do I need a referral from my primary care provider to see a specialist?

Your TPMG primary care provider knows you and your medical history and will help you chose the best provider out there for your individual needs.

What is the difference between family medicine, internal medicine, and geriatric medicine?

  • A family medicine physician treats children and adults.
  • An internal medicine physician treats adults.
  • A geriatric medicine physician treats the elderly.

How can I contact my primary care provider?

To contact your primary care provider, please contact your primary care office or sign up for our patient portal where you can receive the answers to all of your medical questions.

Are you accepting new patients?

While many of our primary care practices are accepting new patients, some are not. Please contact your future primary care office’s webpage to determine if the practice is accepting new patients or utilize the “Find A Provider” toolbar, select the “Primary Care” specialty, and click the box marked “Accepting New Patients” to find a primary care provider nearest you. 

Will my insurance be accepted?

Though TPMG contracts with various insurance carriers, not all TPMG providers actively participate in our carrier plans. To avoid unexpected or additional out-of-pocket expenses, contact your provider’s office to verify that he/she participates with your insurance plan.

What if I don’t have insurance?

If you do not have insurance, please contact your physician’s office to learn about your payment options.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

New patients, and patients who have not been to our practice within the past year, are requested to arrive 15-20 minutes early to complete the registration process. For your convenience, registration forms can be printed and completed before your appointment by visiting your office’s webpage on our website. Before your initial appointment, be sure to contact your previous primary care physician or specialist to request that your medical records be sent to us.

New Patients:

  • All medications you are currently taking (include prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal remedies)
  • Your current health insurance card
  • Photo identification
  • A referral from your primary care physician, if required by your insurance plan
  • A list of allergies to medications or dyes
  • Immunization record for children
  • Payment for any required co-pays, deductibles, or non-covered services
