As we get older our reasons for seeing a doctor changes. We are encountering different changes in our bodies, some of which need extra special attention and care. The 50 and over population begin to deal with different ailments, diseases, and illnesses many doctors are not focused on or trained to treat. Sometimes as we age our expectations for doctor–patient relationships change. One of the things we may have to consider is looking to find a doctor that deals specifically with the 50 and over population. A doctor who is trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and care that is specific to our population and who is up to date on the latest conditions, medicines, theories, tests, and nutritional needs specific to our population. While many of us have held long-standing relationships with our physicians, some of us need to transition to physicians geared towards the 50 and over population. This is a decision not easily made, but can be the one decision made to your greatest benefit: your health and well being. If you are in the position or feel the need to consider transitioning to a doctor who has the latest care information on the 50 and over population, consider contacting the WNY Medical, PC professionals located at 4979 Harlem Rd., Amherst or calling 923-4389 for an appointment.
