Geriatric Physician in Kerala- Online Consultation| Expert Opinion on Elder Care

Welcome to the Official website of Senior Citizens Clinic

The medical field of Geriatric medicine focuses on treating older individuals. Due to the rise in older people and their challenges, it is becoming more and more important these days. There are very few specialists in the discipline because it is still in its infancy.

An expert Geriatric physician's input is essential in management of complicated problems in elderly patients since they can spot potential issues that could develop in elderly individuals receiving therapy for a certain condition and take precautions to avoid them. 

Even though there may not be a nearby Geriatric expert, a Telemedicine consultation with an expert Geriatrician can greatly assist families in making informed decisions about the elderly person's care.

Patients from all over Kerala can access our Tele Medicine services.. 

Health problems for which Online Consultation can be effectively utilized

Online consultation has its limitations since doctor can'tt examine the patient physically and rely only on history.

But it can be utilized effectively for certain conditions like:

> Clarifying doubts regarding disease process and medication use

> To know whether a symptom is significant in a patient with underlying chronic condition

> Counseling patient/ carers

> Diabetes control: adjust medicines/ Insulin

> Care plan formulation: for an elderly patient if in doubt regarding outcome of on going treatment
