Because of the variations of experiences that accompany a patient’s long life and the clinical complexity of geriatric disorders, geriatric patient care management must be facilitated correctly and competently. Sopris Medical Practice uses an advanced system of Electronic Medical Records to provide our elderly patients with the most up-to-date and comprehensive care.
The planning of geriatric patient care requires an awareness of the interactions of treatments, pathologies, life experiences, family, and support systems. The overall goal of Sopris Medical Practice is to help you and your family understand the special needs of older adults and apply this understanding to your plan of care. Dr. Bowen is experienced in recognizing how the aging process affects the prescription of medications, the success of various treatments, and the outcomes of patient care in general.
