“Life is worth living – stay in the moment.”



I am a geriatrician and author, with over 20 years experience, having been board certified in Internal, Geriatric and Palliative Medicine.

I focus on the whole person, and how medical, pain, behavioral challenges affect their daily life.

I provide expert geriatric assessment to aid the primary provider to help elders live their best lives, engaged, comfortable and active.

TeleHealth Geriatric Assessment

An in-depth evaluation of the medical, behavioral, pain and function challenges to elders in their home. This is similar to, but not telemedicine. She works to identify medications that may be problematic, evaluates pain, advises primary providers on strategies to improve function, and restores joy.

Speaker and Consultant

There are only 3500 practicing geriatricians in the United States. There are over 54 million people over 65 in the United States. Therefore there is a massive need for teaching techniques to help people who aren’t necessarily board-certified geriatricians. Dr Liz has over twenty years of developing teaching methods to help family caregivers and professionals understand how best to think about and work with Elders. She’s a dynamic, engaging speaker and brings a wealth of real-life knowledge and experience to her sessions.
