Geriatric Dermatology

Due to improvements in medical care and nutrition and advances in technology, the number of people in the United States who are over the age of 65 is larger than ever before. This growing population often has special medical concerns. Geriatric dermatology is the subspecialty of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of skin disease in older adults.

Dr. Gilchrist welcomes elderly patients to her practice and values the wisdom, perspectives, and humor that only they can bring. A 25-mile-per-hour senior zone on the street that leads to her office, easy and abundant parking, automatic access doors, elevator access, wide examination rooms to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, and friendly staff will ease your visit.

We accept Medicare, as well!
