Personal Statement

As healthcare has improved over the past several decades, more and more adults are living into their 8th, 9th and even 10th decades of life. I seek to provide comprehensive, compassionate and individualized care to all adults based on their preferences and values, with a focus on care of the rapidly increasing population of older adults. I also seek to dedicate considerable efforts to educating the next generation of internal medicine physicians in the principles of geriatric medicine while they are still in training so that they are better prepared to care for older adults regardless of the subspecialty within internal medicine they choose for their career paths.

 

I practice primarily at Weill Cornell Medicine's Adult Internal Medicine practice, where I see adult patients of all ages, but mainly older adults, and maintain a smaller practice at the Irving Sherwood Wright Center on Aging, which is Weill Cornell Medicine’s geriatrics faculty practice. I rotate on the inpatient medicine and geriatrics services and the palliative care consultation service at New York Presbyterian -Weill Cornell Medical Center several weeks out of the year. I am as passionate about teaching medical students and physicians in training as I am about patient care and am active in clinical and preclinical education at Weill Cornell Medical College. I also have a background in quality improvement and patient safety, serving on several committees and participating in quality improvement initiatives and research projects.

Biography

Dr. Eiss received his MD from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2008 and completed his internal medicine residency in 2011 and geriatric fellowship in 2012 at NewYork-Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center. He was recruited to serve as the Quality Improvement/Patient Safety Chief Resident for the Department finishing his fellowship and in this role, he launched several important initiatives in both inpatient and outpatient sign-out and helped change the structure of the daily resident schedule so that night float residents stay for morning rounds to reduce unnecessary handoffs and add an additional educational opportunity to that rotation. He is currently working on a quality improvement initiative on the inpatient wards to institute a multidisciplinary “discharge timeout” to reinforce crucial changes made to a patient’s medication regimen and aspects of follow up in hopes of reducing unnecessary readmissions and improving patient satisfaction. As the sole member of Weill Cornell Internal Medicine Associates with formal geriatrics training, he provides residents with lectures on geriatric medicine in the outpatient venue and is interested in expanding exposure to geriatrics to residents during their outpatient medicine rotations as well as developing a “Geriatrics Resource Center” and tracking outcomes after implementation.
