Phyllis and Lee Coffey Geriatrics Practice at
The Martha Stewart Center for Living

The Phyllis and Lee Coffey Geriatrics Practice is dedicated to providing outstanding, affordable primary care and specialty services for older adults on an outpatient basis. We specialize in caring for frail elders (75 years +) with complex health problems, such as polypharmia (side effects caused by multiple medications), incontinence, memory loss, dementia, osteoporosis, falls, delirium and functional impairment.

We offer comprehensive, coordinated patient- and family-centered care through programs housed within the Martha Stewart Center for Living (MSCL). MSCL is a state-of-the-art geriatric outpatient center located on Mount Sinai’s main campus on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Our caring and compassionate multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and other health professionals strive to help older adults make informed decisions about their health. We have the advantage of being able to draw on Mount Sinai’s vast resources, including specialists and researchers spanning numerous disciplines.

If you already have a primary care physician but would like the opinions of a geriatrics comprehensive practice, members of our practice are available to consult with your provider. In addition to outstanding medical care, our patients have access to healthy living activities including yoga, tai chi, disease education, social enhancement, support groups, and arts and crafts classes. We also provide support and education for family members and caregivers.
