Aging brings its own rewards and challenges. Emory Clinic’s primary care geriatric doctors – also known as geriatricians – specialize in treating conditions that affect older adults. Find preventive care and learn how to lower your risk of serious health issues so you can live your golden years to the fullest.

Emory Clinic geriatric doctors diagnose, treat and manage diseases and conditions that require a special approach for aging patients. They serve as both primary care physicians and consultants for older adults. The Emory Clinic team includes gerontologists who study approaches to improving the function and quality of life for older adults.

Senior care guided by science

Emory Clinic 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 aims to improve health care for older adults. Our vision is to speed the discovery of innovative medical therapies through team science. This teamwork translates to smart health solutions as you age.

Senior health programs and services

Emory’s senior programs offer expert education and guidance about many kinds of topics, such as how to:

  • Prevent falls
  • Manage medicine
  • Control blood sugar
  • Care for wounds
  • Manage ongoing conditions like diabetes, lung disease or heart problems

Emory Clinic Geriatrics offers programs and specialized centers that get you right to the health care you need most. But they care for you as a whole, vibrant person — not just treating one aspect of your health. Learn more about our Healthy Start assessments and the Emory Coordinated Care Center
