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.

Dr. Michael is trained in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases that affect senior citizens. He knows the aging process and is aware of the types of ailments that many older adults experience. Dementia, depression and other life-altering conditions can present challenges. 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. He understands the special needs older patients may require, and he is willing to go that extra mile to help you or your loved one move comfortably into the golden years.

Dr. Michael is the most Caring Dr. I have had the privilege of having taking care of my health needs. His calm and personal demeanor is above and beyond what I have ever experienced. I have never had issues with the the waiting time but, if ever I did I would not complain because he is worth the wait. I get his complete attention the entire visit. When I leave I feel very confident that he has completely covered my heath needs from head to toe. I would recommend him to anyone who wants is concerned or wants a Dr. to be concerned about their health.

Dr. Michael has been our family doctor for over 10 years. He has always been the main pillar in our family care; specially a few years ago when my father wouldn’t have been able to get through a very difficult period without his care. He always goes the extra mile. His staff is amazing. Anita, his nurse, always efficient, loving and caring. Aileen, in the front desk, always responsive and helpful. I’m very grateful to have them on our side.

I could literally write pages about Dr. Michael. I thankfully met him and his staff over 13 years ago after I had been suffering from a serious lung infection for over a month that 2 other doctors had missed.- 1 due to being totally arrogant and thinking I just had a cold. I was burning up and so sick I could barely walk. Dr. Michael took the time and actually listened to me - instead of just saying its probably just the flu (as the other doctors had done) or just a cold and sending me home, he actually did a complete physical on me an then had the intuition to order a chest x ray on me (I was not even coughing at the time) and then really looked at it and discovered that I actually had a really serious lung infection and started me on antibiotics. While this may sound like no big deal - it actually was, as he actually saw that it was not a normal looking lung infection and I later learned he went above and beyond and had a infectious disease specialist look at the x ray just to be safe and as he suspected it was even more serious. Since that day he has always been my main doctor. I would also like to add that I have a serious long term health condition and most doctors would generally attribute many of my current and past health issues to my main condition (it usually is the case) but Dr. Michael always looks at whatever is happening to me at the moment as if I was a new patient. This is probably his biggest talent and gift as a doctor as he has on more than one occasion over the years thought outside the box with me and has figured out quickly why I was sick at the time - sometimes it was minor but more than a few times it was really serious. His quick way of thinking and knowledge and intuition is what kept me from getting sicker and going into the hospital. If you are looking for a doctor that actually treats you like a person and not a number then see this man. I am not a celebrity or a wealthy person - far from it - but he treats me like I am - many Vets like myself go to the VA and its a great blessing but I just do not have the energy to go there as its so big. Dr. Michael is seriously brilliant and really patient and I am truly thankful I found him.

Dr. Michael takes the time to explain the meaning of medical terms and test results in a way that a lay person can understand. He is very thorough and answers any question that you may have. His staff is also very professional and competent at their tasks. Given a choice, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Tim Whalen

Dr. Michael is an intelligent caring human being who is focused on positive outcomes. He has a great ability to synthesize the details of lab results and other tests into preventive measures. I greatly respect his approach to care.

A very smart and caring doctor. Very intuitive and yet he will base his decisions on test data. Patient for over 10 years. 5 stars
