Elliot Senior Health Primary Care providers also offer a Geriatric Consultation Clinic for seniors living in our community. This service involves a medical examination by a Board Certified Geriatrician intended to help primary care physicians determine a course of treatment for older patients with multiple, complex health issues. Reasons for referring patients to the Geriatric Consultation Clinic include falls, depression, functional decline, infections, incontinence, malnutrition, pressure sores, drug interactions and side effects, and repeated emergency room visits. Appointments for the Geriatric Consultation Clinic require a physician’s referral. For more information call (603) 663-7030.
Working with your primary care provider, an Elliot clinical pharmacist will review your medications with you for drug interactions, side effects and potential cost savings. The pharmacist will provide you with education for the medications that you take, as well as education for conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and osteoporosis.
