Medical City Lewisville Announces New Senior Health Clinic Physician

On April 21, Medical City Lewisville will host a HealthyU seminar to introduce the new physician for the Senior Health Clinic, 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.

Dr Chaudhry completed her residency program at Columbia University in New York and was fellowship-trained in gerontology at Robert Wood Johnson University in New Jersey. After her fellowship, she worked at Hunterdon Medical Centre in New Jersey in its Geriatrics department, diagnosing and managing memory disorders along with other ailments in an outpatient setting. She relocated to Texas in 2008 and worked as a Hospitalist at Medical City Lewisville in 2010. Dr. Chaudhry joined the Senior Health Clinic in February.

To support ongoing health education in the community, Medical City Lewisville offers a monthly HealthyU "Healthy Hour" program. Programs feature physician speakers, health education and motivation to help patients and community members stay healthy throughout the year.

All events are 6:00 - 7:00pm (1 hour) and are held in the 2nd Floor Community Room at Medical City Lewisville (500 West Main Street). Doors open at 5:30pm and healthy snacks are provided before the presentation begins at 6:00pm. Door prizes conclude the evening.

This month’s program will take place on Thursday, April 21. Dr. Chaudhry will explain the importance of Geriatrics and why she chose to focus on primary medical care for patients 65 and older. There will be plenty of time for Q&A, allowing attendees to better get to know the new physician.
