Senior Medicine: Primary Care for Older Adults

Among the Nation's Best

As your body ages, your health care needs change. It's important to work with a physician who has special training in keeping older adults healthy.

Led by Victor Legner, MD, MS, our senior medicine internists have certifications in geriatrics and provide general health care for patients age 65 and older, including:

  • Primary care
  • Health maintenance
  • Diagnostic evaluations
  • Acute and chronic care
  • Medical consultations

To make an appointment with any of our physicians, please call 800-926-8273 (new patients) or 858-657-8440 (existing UC San Diego patients).
