Our Patients Are Saying…

My doctor, Dr. Brittany Love, is a very caring doctor, and as well as her staff, they go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable. And to make sure that you understand all issues that you have. I’m just comfortable in her care and that of her staff as well.

Everyone listened carefully to my concerns about my mother’s health and living arrangements and made clear suggestions on how to help her going forward.

The house call was a great relief. My mother doesn’t travel well and having the option for a home visit was/is amazing.

Dr. Ross is a true professional and a very caring doctor. You’re in good hands with Dr. Ross. HSC should be proud to have her.

Dr. Knebl and her staff are outstanding in their care for our father. Her technical skill and more importantly her compassion, extra time she spends with Dad to explain everything to him in a manner in which he can understand is so appreciated by the entire family. We are all so grateful for her and her entire staff.

Center for Older Adults Frequently Asked Questions

Most patients start to see a geriatrician when they are 65 years old or older. Our Center for Older Adults team is specially trained to assist with cognitive and physical changes as the patient ages.

Medicaid Advantage Members are welcome to utilize our dedicated clinic for WellMed patients!

Qualifying patients must be 65 years or older and “homebound” due to mobility limitations, problems with transportation, or memory loss with behavioral issues. Patients can be homebound while living:

  • At home
  • In an independent living facility
  • In an assisted-living facility

For referrals, have your insurance information on hand and your discharge summary if recently hospitalized.

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Dementia will include regularly scheduled meetings with the patient, the care team, a neuropsychologist, and the patient’s family to discuss what changes to expect over time. These meetings will include practical guidance for day-to-day activities along with medical advice.
