We are moving my 87 year old mother, who has moderate Alzheimer’s, from the Sacramento area to Sunrise Belmont near us. We’re looking for a primary care doctor for her nearby. She prefers a holistic approach and doesn’t want a doctor who will just write prescriptions. She has IBS (with bad constipation) and has been struggling more with it lately than ever. Can you please recommend local doctors who we can check out for her. She has Medicare. My name is Felice Stahl, phone 650-678-7592. Thank you very much.

Hello, When looking for a good doctor for an elder and particularly for an elder with dementia, I would look several places. I would ask at a caregiver support group and the Alzheimer's Association. I would ask at a senior center, who have many participants liked. Then I would try them out before there is a medical emergency.
