drlizElizabeth Landsverk MD

Dr Landsverk (Dr Liz) provides in-depth evaluation to the medical, behavioral, pain and function challenges to elders in their home. This is similar, but not telemedicine. Dr Landsverk has over 20 years of experience as an assistant professor of Medicine, UCSF, consultant to the San Francisco Elder Abuse Forensics Center, hospice medical director, medical director for Silverado and Kensington Dementia Communities, as well as housecalls for 15 years for elders with complex medical and behavioral symptoms. She works to identify medications that may be problematic, assess pain, advise primary providers on strategies to improve function, relieve pain and restore joy.

Each Session Includes:

  • Review of Geriatric Assessment
  • Medical review of the health records
  • 30-minute telehealth video appointment
  • Follow up written report with suggestions you can discuss with your doctor complete with an action plan

Schedule Your 30-minute Session with Dr Landsverk

The registering participant understands that this is not direct medical treatment but a geriatric assessment to support your primary physician. A report will be written and sent to the responsible party and the primary doctor, who will look at the recommendations and decide what treatments are appropriate for this person.
