Apple Ridge Family Medicine delivers comprehensive primary care to seniors. As part of our preventative approach to healthcare, we believe in proactive methods to protect our older patients against health-related issues that come with age.
We offer regular physical examinations and treatment for most acute and chronic conditions commonly experienced by seniors. Our caring physicians are here to help you preserve your independence, stay active, and maintain a good quality of life as you advance in age.
We take the time to get to know you, understand your medical history, and evaluate your medical and medication needs. We work closely with you, as well as your family members and caregivers when appropriate, to help you achieve and maintain good health.
We recommend routine physical and wellness visits for our seniors. Keeping a close and consistent eye on your wellbeing is important for detecting and treating issues as early as possible.
