Geriatrics Care | Unimed


Geriatrics in itself is a multifaceted medical practice in which the well being of the patient as a whole must be combined with the social and emotional factors which are involved in the aging process. Few physicians have been adequately trained to understand the complex and interrelated health and emotional issues associated with the study of geriatrics.

The aging body differs physiologically from younger adults. Younger adults often are treated by addressing specific health issues – treating a symptom or condition in isolation. However, all organs and body systems are clearly deeply interconnected – one condition manifestly has impact on other body systems and our entire well-being. In the case of the medical practice of Geriatrics, this truth is far more obvious. Physicians must be trained and able to treat the total person – understanding how all of the body’s systems interact to create health and well-being.

Thus previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of increasingly complex symptoms and interacting disease states as we age. In addition, the elderly are more susceptible and sensitive to certain situations than younger people. For example, simple stomach flu may be a nuisance for a younger person but a far more serious threat in on older adult because of the dangers of dehydration. The elderly are more susceptible to falls and consequent fractures. Also, geriatric physician must be far more attentive to the impact of the medications a patient takes – monitoring dosage, checking for contraindications and adverse drug interactions.

It takes a very special kind of physician to address these diverse needs. It takes a physician who has a deep understanding of the entirety of medicine. It takes a person who has the emotional and spiritual depth to appreciate who his patients are, who appreciates the depths of their lives and their stories.

In our practice, we view the total person as a whole and all the complexities that are involved in the practice of Geriatrics are handled with the utmost care, professionalism and grace. Our practice is able to service the needs of individuals in many areas including Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Pompano Beach.

Our Geriatrics practice of UNIMED offer doctors, nurses, and staff who love their work and the patients for whom they work – creating healthier, happier lives -one by one.

Primary Care Physicians | Unimed Care Center

Primary care physicians have the full responsibility of ensuring the overall health of their patients. They are one of the most important factors in establishing the sound health and care at the rudimentary level. In a world of specialists, primary care is becoming an antiquated word. Good medicine begins with primary care. And the best primary care begins with prevention. Every healthcare problem prevented means savings in terms of personal suffering, money and time. Prevention means more quality time to enjoy family, friends and life.

Our primary care specialists understand that good prevention takes work. We ensure that all our patients get their annual physicals (including lab work & EKG) that meet Medicare (Hedis) guidelines. We reach out to every patient, helping them fulfill their medical protocols and reminding them to come in for their follow-up visits. We have two Nurse Practitioners who do diabetic teaching and nutritional counseling.

In addition, as primary care internists we want to understand the entire patient.  Health issues are only the beginning. We want to know the whole story – family history, social background and environment. This allows us to have a full understanding of how any illnesses may have their roots in genetic or local factors. As primary care physicians, the scope of our service goes beyond simply practicing medicine and also takes on investigative aspects to help us care for our patients by utilizing the most thorough and complete methods available.

The more we learn about you, the more we are able to see potential problems before they happen – to intercede early when necessary.

As primary care physicians we encompass the entire range of health issues, understanding how the emotional, psychological aspects of our patients interact with their physical health. We appreciate that a good final outcome must include not only how a patient feels physically but how they feel about themselves.

Ultimately, the relationship between doctor and patient is one of trust. Our goal is to build a bond of trust. We want our patients to know that they can count on us. That we will be there for them – always.

UNIMED offers its services to everyone that can reach our office conveniently. Our practice often has patients from Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach and the surrounding areas.
