The cornerstone of our clinical care program is the acclaimed Duke Geriatric Evaluation and Treatment (GET) Clinic, an entity associated with Duke University Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development that has helped thousands of “frail elders” -- older people with multiple health problems -- enjoy more robust health and a better quality of life.
The clinic’s dedicated and compassionate team of physicians, social workers, nurses, and other caregivers carefully evaluates each patient, and then works with families to design a care program and living plan that meets the specific needs of that patient.
We encourage our patients to continue their relationships with their primary care physicians, and we work closely with those providers to seamlessly diagnose, treat, and deliver follow-up care for a full range of health and wellness concerns that are prevalent among the elderly.
At the GET Clinic, Duke geriatricians provide diagnostic, consultative, and treatment services to outpatients for medical conditions that include:
