Polypharmacy: So many pills!
"Drugs don't work in patients who don't take them."

Taking multiple medications several times a day can feel overwhelming. Geriatricians specialize in reducing pill burden and decreasing medications when possible, as well as educating you on the ones you need. We enjoy coordinating care with your specialists, such as your cardiologist or urologist, and also with any nutritionist or integrative provider you may have to manage supplements or other treatments.
