Andrew Ting is a medical doctor who specializes in addressing health care issues that are most common among geriatric patients. With several decades of experience in the medical industry, Andrew Ting, MD, has a deep understanding of the issues that typically arise as patients age and has a long track record of success in providing compassionate and effective care to patients. It is through this site that Dr. Ting hopes to educate and inform health care practitioners, families and patients with regard to best practices in treating the conditions that most often afflict elder care patients.
In addition to his work in addressing the issues elderly patients must often face, Dr. Ting is also heavily involved in programs that promote lifestyle choices that are helpful from a preventive care standpoint. These programs are comprehensive in nature and cover topics that include diet and exercise, among other relevant subjects. Dr. Ting also works with patients to identify the kinds of habits that are considered most healthy and those that are considered most unhealthy, a process that is quite difficult due to the need to correct misconceptions while also convincing patients to give up habits that are firmly entrenched.
Dr. Ting’s interest in medicine began at a very early age as he was fascinated by the biology of the body’s processes and the various methods used to correct any issues relating to these processes. Upon entering college as an undergraduate, Dr. Ting immediately enrolled in the pre-med program and set forth on a path that would lead him to a long and successful career in medicine. During his residency, Dr. Ting became particularly interested in the conditions afflicting the elderly patients under his care due to the complexities inherent in treating those with failing health.
It is because of these complexities that many doctors choose to specialize in areas other than elder care. It is imperative that each patient is treated in a highly individualized manner, and the standard care procedures for a specific condition do not always apply when it comes to geriatric patients. Conditions that are typically treated aggressively may have to be addressed in a more careful manner to account for a patient’s weakened state or in consideration of other conditions also afflicting the patient. Dr. Ting enjoys working with these patients and developing a specific treatment plan based on their individual needs, and he hopes that the information he shares here will help others do the same.
