As adults get older, certain health risks begin to arise that may not have been so urgent before. Because of these increased risks, it’s extremely important that the physicians working to care for older adult patients are experienced in identifying a wide range of conditions, attentive to their patients’ needs, and available to reach the patient if their mobility should be impaired.
At PT Family Medicine, Dr. Kevin Wong and his team are proud to provide top-quality primary care for elderly patients throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. As an independent practice, we have the freedom to provide a personalized approach that allows us to make every patient feel seen and cared for in our office. We’re also able to make home visits, and provide care for seniors in hospitals or nursing homes when necessary.
If you or an older loved one are ready to receive patient-first primary care from the top geriatric doctor near you, don’t wait. Schedule your first appointment with the team at PT Family Medicine today.
Building a trusting relationship with a primary care provider is important for any patient, but for seniors, it’s essential that their care is hands-on, attentive, and continuous in order to prevent high-risk conditions from arising, or catch them when they’re in stages early enough to treat successfully. A top-quality care plan for older adult patients includes routine exams, screenings for various high-risk conditions, and accessibility of care should their mobility become limited.
At PT Family Medicine, we’re highly experienced in providing all of these services, including:

Yes! Our Pittsburgh care team is experienced in offering long-term care for geriatric patients who are living with a long-term, chronic illness. We can provide this level of care in the home, via telemedicine, in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or in a hospital.
When routine screenings and wellness exams are performed on patients, both early risk factors and signs of illness or injury tend to be detected earlier, resulting in better outcomes once treatment begins. For older adult patients, for whom those risks are higher and treatments can be more dangerous, early detection can potentially save a life.
