Austin Geriatric Specialists

Austin Geriatric Specialists is a group of health care providers dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate geriatric care in skilled nursing facilities. Our practice consists of board certified internal medicine, family practice, and geriatric physicians as well as advanced practice nurses with special training in geriatrics. Our practice has been serving Austin and the surrounding communities for over 25 years.

Our practitioners are strong advocates for the frail geriatric patient, both individually as well as a group. Our physicians have served as past-president of the Travis County Medical Society, past-president of Texas Medical Directors Association, chairman of the TCMS Geriatric Committee, and have been the recipients of numerous awards, including the 2014 Travis County Medical Society Physician of the Year award. We participate in geriatric research and education, and currently serve as the instructors of geriatric medicine for the Family Practice and Internal Medicine Residencies at Brackenridge. Many of our practitioners also have special training in end of life care, and our staff includes physicians board certified in palliative and hospice medicine. Our practice currently cares for patients in post-acute care facilities including skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities.
