Heart Care for the Elderly
Cardiology for the Elderly
Older individuals often do not respond the same way to conventional heart disease treatments. Geriatric cardiology, is a branch of cardiology that deals with cardiovascular disorders in older people. It incorporates both traditional evidence based cardiovascular management plus comprehensive geriatric assessment, medication reduction, team-based coordination of care, improving functional outcomes, and consideration of patient goals.
Dr. Peter Ting has a diploma in geriatric medicine and has experience in helping the older cardiac patient and their families sort through their complex conditions and unique needs.
Our priority lies within:
Enhance quality of life
Reduce symptoms & hospitalization
Improve function & independence
decrease medications & potential side effects.
