Summary

  • I'm a geriatrician specializing in housecalls and collaborative consultation services for frail older adults. My direct-pay practice focuses on helping seniors and caregivers with geriatric issues that may be quite time-consuming to address during routine primary care visits. My fees are based on a reasonable hourly rate and are not covered by Medicare. All my notes are always copied to the PCP. For more info drkernisan.net

    I also have a geriatrics health information website at GeriatricsForCaregivers.net, and I blog about geriatrics and technology at www.geritech.org.
