Senior Medicine: Primary Care for Older Adults

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. Our program has been ranked among the nation's top 50 programs for geriatrics care by U.S. News & World Report.

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).
