Patient Education 
We encourage our patients to learn about health-related topics by reading information gathered by Geriatrics & Adult Psychiatry professionals. This page gives you online access to materials that can alter health behaviors and improve overall well being.

The value of patient education can be summarized as follows:
  • Improved understanding of medical conditions, diagnosis, disease, or disability
  • Helping patients decide the best plan of action
  • Increasing opportunities for treatment acceptance
  • Enabling patients to assume responsibility for their own health care
  • Increasing patient trust, satisfaction, and loyalty
  • Providing patients with the opportunity to practice prevention techniques at home
  • Ensuring continuity of care between appointments.
  • Improving communication between you and your patients
