Geriatric Care Santa Monica, CA

As people age, their bodies change dramatically. Though many considerations remain the same, older people often have different health requirements than younger patients. The health issues that older patients experience at this stage of life may present differently from earlier years. As more Americans move into their golden years, geriatric care becomes more necessary. Dr. Brent J. Michael has training and expertise in this area.

Elderly patients often experience new health issues in their lives. It is important to have a doctor who can explain what can be done to prevent or delay the onset of certain conditions. It is also important for the doctor to be able to detect the coming changes, treat them, and teach the patients and their loved ones how to manage these health issues.

The Importance of Geriatric Care

Older adults may face health concerns that can be embarrassing or even frightening. Impaired memory, incontinence, loss of balance and decreased mobility are a few of the problems elderly patients may encounter. Discussing some of these issues can be challenging. Dr. Michael provides a safe place to talk over these concerns. With a compassionate listening ear, he counsels older adults and helps them manage the new changes in their lives.

The preventive aspect of his practice helps ward off some of the diseases that can impact senior citizens.

Patient education, regular checkups and family involvement can make a patient’s golden years truly golden. Dr. Michael has the expertise and experience to help you achieve that standard.

Dr. Michael is not your average doctor. I feel fortunate to have enjoyed Dr. Michael as my primary GP for over 6 years and have found him to be extremely trustworthy, personable, knowledgeable, honest, thorough, compassionate and non-judgmental. He takes the time to talk to you and to listen to all of your concerns. Dr. Michael is someone you can talk with and he really cares about each one of his patients. He listens and provides suggestions. A patient couldn't ask for a more caring physician than Dr. Michael. The entire office staff is extremely friendly, personable and accommodating. Dr. Michael is a great doctor, mentor and friend. I'm glad I have him as my primary care provider! I am forever grateful to Dr. Michael and strongly recommend him to anyone who desires personalized care.

Dr. Michael takes time to listen, diagnose, and prescribe the best treatment possible. He made me feel comfortable talking to him about all of my health concerns and I left my appointment with answers to all of my questions. Dr Michael really understood what I was feeling both emotionally and physically and communicated that understanding to me.

Jose Hernandez

Dr. Michaels is easy to talk to, down-to-earth as well as smart and competent. It feels more like you’re getting good advice from a personal friend who is also a licensed physician. I have been recommending him to friends and family for years now and with absolutely no complaints. He is always able to fit me into his schedule and help me as promptly as possible. I haven’t had to wait more than twenty minutes after checking in to see him. He is very knowledgeable and polite and is willing to answer all of my questions without being rude or cold.
