The Division of Geriatric Medicine and Aging at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital provides older adults with medical, functional, cognitive, and psychosocial care, as well as other support services to promote optimum health in later years. We also provide support for the caregivers of older adults.

A Team Approach

Our interdisciplinary team includes fellowship-trained board-certified geriatricians, as well as nurse practitioners, social workers, and others who specialize in the care of frailer, older adults. We also collaborate with subspecialty physicians and other clinicians to offer comprehensive care.

Comprehensive Expertise

Allen Hospital's geriatric medicine clinicians are specialty-trained in issues of aging, including arthritis, balance problems and falls, diabetes, frailty, hypertension, dementia, pain management, function, urinary problems, and supportive and end-of-life care.

A Full Suite of Services

Geriatrics and Aging Services include coordinated, specialized programs for older adults through outreach programs in the community. We provide older adults with the diagnostic services, medical and treatment, and continued support necessary to preserve optimum health. We offer clinical services in both the inpatient and outpatient settings and include local long-term care facilities.

Consultation Service

Many vulnerable elderly patients admitted to the hospital by either subspecialty or primary care physicians have specific geriatric issues. The Geriatric Consultation Service is available for older inpatients on any nursing unit at Allen Hospital. Geriatrics clinicians involved in the consultation service are able to address issues common in the elderly, such as incontinence, hospital-induced delirium, dizziness, dementia, polypharmacy (use of multiple medications by a patient), falls, sleep disorders, elder abuse, palliative care, and discharge planning.

A Commitment to Education

One goal of the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Aging is to foster geriatric education among members of the healthcare field, as well as in the community. Through our educational programs, we teach physicians, Columbia University medical students, and other clinicians, as well as people in the community, about evidence-based and compassionate ways to care for older adults.

Our Physicians

Our Geriatric Medicine physicians are also on the staff of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, one of the country's major medical centers. In addition, each of our physicians is a member of the highly regarded ColumbiaDoctors faculty practice. You can experience the level of exceptional care expected from NewYork-Presbyterian in a personal and accessible environment.
