Senior Health Clinic - Medical City Lewisville
Medical City Lewisville opened its Senior Health Clinic in October 2013. Focused on the high quality primary medical care of patients 65 years of age and older, the Senior Health Clinic is prepared to help local seniors make the golden years healthier. Residents over the age of 65, are the fastest growing demographic in the area at a rate of over 51%. With the community’s population aging and many primary care physicians limiting or not accepting Medicare patients, the hospital recognized a need to expand their comprehensive healthcare experience to seniors. “We are excited to offer this specialized service to the senior community and look forward to meeting their healthcare needs”, said Jim Russell, Chief Operating Officer at Medical City Lewisville.
The clinic is staffed with specially trained healthcare professionals who can assess, coordinate, and monitor all aspects of treatment and progress. In addition, a social worker is available to assist patients with remaining as independent as possible in their living situations. They work directly with patients, their families and physicians to assess individual needs and provide appropriate referrals. Assistance can be provided with such needs as medications, homemaker/personal care, transportation, support groups, financial aid, and much more.
How is the Senior Health Clinic different from a primary care office?
The Senior Health Clinic is staffed by a specially trained geriatrician - Afeefa Chaudhry, MD. Board certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, Dr. Chaudhry understands the unique health needs of seniors. As the physician for Medical City Lewisville’s Senior Health Clinic, she is focused on high quality primary medical care of patients 65 years of age and older.
