We serve our community's older adults who have complex medical conditions.
Just as you may be referred to a cardiologist for heart care, you may be referred to Geriatric Care for help to improve your function, enhance your quality of life and maintain your independence.
How Geriatric Care can help
Serving ages 65+
You must be a resident of King County Public Hospital District No. 2, which includes Bothell, Duvall, Kenmore, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish and Woodinville.
No referral is needed.
Our experienced geriatric team will assess your medical conditions, cognitive status, functional ability and mental health needs to determine the best care for you.
Then we’ll work in partnership with you, your family and your other health care providers to put a care plan into place.
We also work with hospitalized older adults, and we’re able to reduce their hospital readmission rates because we partner with them, their families, their primary care physicians and other medical specialists to ensure a smooth transition from hospitalization to recovery.
Our Geriatric Care team
Our team of specialists includes geriatricians, nurses, social workers and pharmacists—all with special training and experience to help you live your healthiest best.
Our services include:
We evaluate your health status, including functional and cognitive ability, emotional health and your support needs.
If you have repeated falls, this evaluation and intervention planning will help reduce your risks.
Learn more about fall prevention in this podcast with Dr. Marissa Black. You can also read a transcript of the podcast.

We coordinate your care needs with your primary care physician, specialty physicians, home care providers and other community resources.
We work with you and your family to better understand topics such as living with chronic diseases, managing difficult behaviors and social problems associated with dementia, and making thoughtful end-of-life decisions.
Memory loss and dementia assessment
There are many causes of memory loss, and it's important to know if yours is normal memory changes related to aging or memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
Our comprehensive evaluation can help determine the cause, provide treatment and support you and your family.
The evaluation and expert diagnosis by our team is then used to develop your treatment plan.

Neurodegenerative workup, diagnosis and management
Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Reza Ghomi assists with patients who have cognitive decline where the underlying diagnosis is unknown. He screens for conditions such as frontal variant Alzheimer’s, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia, primary progressive aphasia, posterior cortical atrophy and corticobasal degeneration, among others.
Dr. Ghomi will ensure you get a correct diagnosis and discover which of your symptoms are part of the disease. Then you'll get a plan to manage genetic implications, learn about available treatments or clinical trials, and get support and monitoring for both you and your caregivers.
Appointments are available for current patients of the Geriatric Care clinic. You will need a referral from your physician.
