Aging brings rewards and challenges. Our primary care geriatric doctors – also known as geriatricians – specialize in treating conditions that affect older adults. We're here to provide preventive care and learn how you can lower your risk of severe health issues so you can live your golden years to the fullest.

Geriatric doctors diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and conditions that require a unique approach for aging patients. They serve as both primary care physicians and consultants for older adults. The team includes gerontologists who study strategies for improving older adults' function and quality of life.

Senior Care Guided by Science

Geriatricians care for patients while also teaching and conducting research at the Emory University School of Medicine. As Geriatric Medicine & Gerontology faculty, their guidance and research aim to improve older adults' health care. Our vision is to speed the discovery of innovative medical therapies through team science. This teamwork translates to smart health solutions as you age.
