Weill Cornell Medicine – New York's Expert Geriatric Specialists
Physicians and nurse practitioners at the Irving Sherwood Wright Center on Aging provide both primary care and consultation in a multidisciplinary, collaborative setting. The Center also runs Housecalls, an innovative program that brings physicians to the homes of elderly patients in the neighborhood of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and delivers care for those unable to visit our physicians.
Additionally, in the summer of 1999, Weill Cornell Medicine formed the Center for Aging Research and Clinical Care, which integrates all geriatrics activities across the institution. The Center is administered by Weill Cornell Medicine's Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology, and its mission is to improve the quality of life of older adults through an integration of NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine's Aging Programs in research, clinical care, and teaching.
What Our Patients Are Saying
"Self-verified patient of Dr. Eiss Dr. Eiss is an amazing person and very patient with his patients (even the demanding ones). He has the patience of a Saint. Not only is he a knowledgeable and intelligent man, but he treats you like a real person. When you're with him, it feels as though you're his only patient (and when he has good news, he seems genuinely happy to be able to convey that good news to you). I don't know many doctors who are so personable and have such a bedside manner. He has an innate kindness and concern for his patients (and people in general). I highly recommend him!"
