What Are Geriatric Psychiatrists?
These are sub specialized psychiatrists who prevent, evaluate, diagnose and treat mental disorders of the elderly. These physicians help older people deal with conditions such as geriatric depression, Alzheimer's, senility, schizophrenia, anxiety, dementia, and other similar conditions that are common in those above 50 years of age. They provide comprehensive care which not only includes diagnosis and treatment, but also counseling and special therapies for various conditions.
All our geriatric psychiatrists are board certified or board eligible in geriatric psychiatry and have successfully completed fellowship in geriatric psychology following training in medical school.
