Description

The Geriatric Care Clinic at Denver Health provides both primary care for patients age 60 and above as well as consultation services. Staffed by a dedicated and experienced multidisciplinary team, we believe in caring for the whole patient as an individual as they strive to meet the challenges of healthy aging. We have a particular interest and experience caring for patients from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, priding ourselves in offering culturally competent and sensitive health care.

Our multidisciplinary team includes two board-certified geriatricians (Dr. Robin Yasui and Dr. Elizabeth Clarke), a dedicated RN and social worker, a medical assistant, clerical staff, a navigator and a pharmacist. Located in the Webb Adult Primary Care Clinic, we also offer services from behavioral health/mental health specialists and an addiction counselor on site. Patients seen in our clinic are able to obtain same-day blood work and basic radiology services in our building at the end of their visit as needed. The Wellington E. Webb Center for Primary Care also houses a full-service pharmacy for patient convenience.

Who Should See a Geriatrician?

Not all persons age 60 and above need a geriatrician. Good family medicine and internal medicine providers are well-trained to care for aging patients. However, if a patient is struggling with some of the conditions noted above and needs a few consultation visits with our team, we are able to work with their primary care provider to evaluate and offer recommendations.
