Marble Valley Healthworks Geriatric Medicine
Seth Coombs, MD, and Bruce B. Bullock, MD are board-certified physicians with experience in geriatric medicine. Each takes a holistic approach to care that emphasizes healthy aging and prevention, while also taking into consideration the importance of maintaining independent living and social support. Our doctors have years of experience managing subacute rehabilitation, and visit patients at all of the area’s residential rehabilitation facilities. Serious illness or injury can lead to long hospitalizations followed by nursing home stays and rehabilitation. Our patients enjoy the reassurance and security of knowing that their doctor will be involved with their care every step of the way, and will be working hard to return them home as safely and independently as possible.
Dr. Coombs and Dr. Bullock work to prevent and treat diseases, conditions, and disabilities that commonly affect older adults. Their focus includes the management of chronic conditions, prevention of falls, coordination of multiple medications, and following the cognitive changes that often occur with aging. The team at Marble Valley HealthWorks also understands the importance of end of life care. We work hand in hand with home health providers, visiting nurse agencies, assisted living facilities, and hospice services to ensure our patients and their families receive comprehensive and attentive care when they need it most.
