About Laura Mosqueda , MD

Laura Mosqueda, MD, FAAFP, AGSF, is a widely respected authority on geriatric and family medicine, elder abuse, and care of the elderly and underserved. She is also an expert on medical education curricula design, development and implementation. 

Mosqueda is the director of the National Center on Elder Abuse, a federally-funded initiative that serves as the nation's coordinating body and clearinghouse for information on research, training, best practices, news and resources on elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. She is the principal investigator of an NIA-funded R01 study to understand the causes of abuse of people with dementia, and is the leader of numerous other activities related to elder justice. 

Philosophy of Care  My job is to help my patients be their best. It is important for me to understand the impact of health and illness on a patient and on those who love them. My person-centered approach to care necessitates understanding not only the medical problems a person may have, but also their emotional and social circumstance so that we are able to share in a decision-making process. I utilize a holistic attitude to providing care, making sure that the health care service I offer is in harmony with my patient’s goals, values, and philosophy.

 

This physician only sees patients 65+.
