We have several providers including physicians, nurse practitioners ("NPs"), physician assistants ("PAs"), and other providers who are specially-trained in geriatric medicine.
WHO IS THE RIGHT PERSON FOR YOUR CARE?
A primary factor is determining where you live and where you will receive care. Many of our providers only work out in the field at specific skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. If that's where you live, you'll be cared for by one of the providers who is assigned to that facility
It's also important to understand the unique team approach we use at Southwest Center on Aging. You'll have a physician responsible for your care as well as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. You may see the doctor from time-to-time and NP or PA more frequently. They are able to spend plenty of time addressing your health needs and concerns, and will collaborate with the physician when necessary.
All of our providers are dedicated to Southwest Center on Aging commitment to bringing you high-quality, compassionate, expert geriatric care.
