Geriatrics (Aging)

Aging Well Together

With age comes a new approach to maintaining health. Serious diseases or chronic medical conditions can significantly affect older adults’ quality of life and place demands on family and caregivers. At UT Health North Campus, we provide care that is patient-centered. Our team works together to be your partner in health whenever you need care.

Our geriatricians are doctors with specialized expertise in caring for the unique medical needs of older people by working to maintain their physical and mental well-being. We teach our aging patients self-management skills with the goal of preventing diseases and diagnosing diseases at the early stages. As part of a patient-centered medical home, we help patients set and achieve their health goals. Call (903) 877-7911 to make an appointment for you or someone you care about.

Our team includes experts from within the Center for Healthy Aging working with experts from our Center for Diabetes Care, internal medicine, and our Breast Center. With the active involvement of our patients and their families, we combine our skills and all available community resources to provide our patients with the best healthcare and quality of life possible.
