Dr. John Geiss started his medical profession treating patients in a regular doctor’s office setting. As more elderly patients came to him for treatment, he saw how taxing the process was on them, and recognized the need for a house call service that focused on the care of seniors in their homes for Southern California. He started Geiss MED 4 years ago with the mission, and purpose, to improve senior healthcare by bringing the doctor’s office to them. This approach keeps our seniors as healthy as possible and at home, so they only go to the hospital or emergency room when they really need to. This improves the quality of their care, and even lowers their healthcare cost. Dr. Geiss is very passionate about his patients and believes that by delivering tailored medical care to them, we can help make their lives better.
