About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine’s Geriatric and Palliative Care physicians offer advanced and compassionate palliative care in New York. Our Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine team provides an extensive network of resources for the comprehensive care of older adults, bringing together a wide range of services that provide easy access to high-quality care. Weill Cornell Medicine gerontologists coordinate closely with physicians in other practices, such as neurology and psychiatry, as needed to offer the full spectrum of palliative treatments.

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.

Anonymous But Grateful Patient
Talking about Barrie L. Raik, M.D.

"Dr. Raik has been my doctor for several decades. Most years, I see her once per year, but sometimes I fail to get there. Dr. Raik is truly an exceptional physician, who is honest and caring. She does not pretend to know everything, but helps the patient to make intelligent decisions. While that sounds like small thing, it is not. If you are looking for a doctor who pretends to be a god, who talks down to you and gets off on their status as a doctor, then, Barrie Raik is not for you. If you are looking for someone who considers herself a partner in this aging journey, who is kind and smart, consider yourself lucky for finding Dr. Raik. BTW-- the staff at the Wright Center is spectacular. kind and expert."
