We need to hire an excellent Concierge type Dr. to visit and help manage meds for my 81.5 year-old Mom (COPD, CHF, terrible varicose veins and very poor circulation), now in Rehab after a burst varicose vein that sent her the hospital 3.5 weeks, and now in Rehab 3 weeks.. We noticed a sudden mental deterioration in Rehab, following Oxycodone being prescribed, and frightening symptoms like tongue swelling, but the resident Dr. didn't respond. Instead of evaluating the new meds she'd been put on, he prescribed Namenda for dementia! We realize that we need a very competent XXXXXXX Med Dr. who specializes in geriatrics and is willing to visit my Mom in Rehab (i.e., does housecalls) to help us correctly
manage her meds & care. My Mom is in Rehab in Canoga Park, CA and lives in Woodland Hills, CA. Thanks for your help!
