What can I expect during my initial geriatrics consultation?

During your initial geriatrics consultation, Dr. Narayan spends time reviewing your medical history, any treatments you’re currently on, and any health concerns you have. He also performs a physical exam to check your muscle strength, joint flexibility, and skin health.

Depending on your current health and history, Dr. Narayan may order bloodwork or other diagnostic tests to assess your health. You might also need blood testing if you’re taking medications to ensure they’re working well for your condition.

Through regular follow-up appointments, Dr. Narayan continues to monitor your health and can address any new symptoms or mobility issues that develop.
