We are still serving our patients during the COVID19 pandemic

Nursing Home Residents: Our providers are in the building multiple times a week taking care of you and keeping you out of the hospital during this critical time. Also managing issues between visits with the help of our brave and dedicated nursing staff at the facilities. 

Assisted Living Residents buildings:

We are preset in the building on Twice a week  in person, and manage our nurses calls 24/7 in between visits.

Independent living residents at Sable Lodge, and Sentry Hill: We are calling everyone, every week, during surge conditions to confirm that everyone is doing okay, and we are making house calls as needed in your apartment. The every 2-3 months scheduled visits remain in place except in outbreak situations where we do telemedicine.

We are able to do Covid testing in your apartment in coordination with home health, and Nordx lab processes these tests within hours. 


Call us if something comes up, and stay safe!

Dr. Fazeli is working with the Directors of Nurses, Resident Care Directors, and Home Health Agencies, to stay ahead of any outbrakes in our buildings and we are proactively testing and isolating as needed. This is above and beyond any national recommendations, and it has proven effective in preventing loss of life thus far.

Dr. Fazeli is advocating at state level and through the Maine Medical Directors Association to make COVID19 testing more available to the elderly in Nursing homes & other facilities. We ecourage you to call state and federal officials and ask for same.

About our Geriatrician and Founder

Dr. Jabbar Fazeli 

Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Geriatrician  with nineteen years experience, and a passion for the elderly and high ethical standards.

Dr. Fazeli maintains privileges in various hospitals, including MMC, Mercy Hospital, and SMHC, but not employed by any.  He founded Maine Geriatrics to be a provider of independent, high quality, and ethical geriatric care. 

He developed the C.A.L.M .(Curtailing Antipsychotic use in LTC Medicine) protocol to help long term care facilities reduce antipsyhotic use in dementia residents. He also co-chairs the Maine Partnership to improve dementia care which shares the same goals as C.A.L.M.

He takes personal interest in training new NPs with the goal of creating consistency of care among the different providers in the practice.

Dr. Fazeli was involved in the teaching of the first generation of geriatric fellows at Maine Medical Center in 2003-2005 and headed the inpatient geriatric consult service at MMC when it was first established. He remains involved in the teaching of health care professionals who provide medical care to the geriatric population in nursing homes, skilled care, and hospital settings through his work with the Maine Medical Directors Association (MaineMDA). He helps organize an annual post acute and long term care Geriatric conference for the association.

Dr. Fazeli’s areas of expertise include chronic non-healing sounds, fall management, dementia with behavioral disturbances, polypharmacy, and management of complex Geriatric cases.
