Geriatrician Establishes Practice with OU Physicians

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 -

Geriatrician Roberto E. Medina, M.D., has established his medical practice with OU Physicians. He has also been named an assistant professor of the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. 

Geriatricians provide health care services specific to seniors just as pediatricians specialize in health needs specific to children. This care may include management of chronic disease, improving functional independence, advanced directives and end of life care as well as family and caregiver support.

Medina is board certified in family medicine and board eligible in geriatric medicine. He completed a geriatrics fellowship at the OU College of Medicine. He completed a family medicine residency at the Wichita Falls Family Practice Residency Program, Wichita Falls, Texas. He earned his medical degree in the Dominican Republic. 

Medina is a member of the American Geriatric Society and the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is fluent in English and Spanish. OU Physicians geriatricians see patients on the OU Health Sciences Center campus at 1122 NE 13th Street. For appointments, call (405) 271-3050. 

As part of The Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the OU College of Medicine, OU Physicians geriatricians teach other physicians about specialized care for seniors at the OU College of Medicine. 

With more than 1,000 doctors and advanced practice providers, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City, Lawton and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
