What to Expect From Your Consultation

The geriatric clinic at the Gerlach Center provides non-urgent geriatric consultation services. The results of your assessment can inform the treatment plans you and your primary care providers develop to help you feel and function at your best

Our geriatric consultation process is generally comprised of two appointments that last up to two hours each.

  1. A social assessment – you will meet with a clinical social worker for a review of your social history and discussion about community resources that might be helpful to you.
  2. A medical examination – you will be seen for a medical examination by a board-certified geriatrician who specializes in treating the conditions of aging. The physician will also discuss any additional testing or medication changes that may be needed.  Follow-up appointments may be scheduled as the physician deems appropriate.

All of our associates at the OhioHealth John J. Gerlach Center for Senior Health specialize in aging issues, and are available to answer your questions, even if you do not need a consultation. Our team can also provide information and referrals to community agencies and resources that provide useful services, like housing, transportation, adult day care and hospice.
