Senior Doctor Columbus Ohio
Finding the right healthcare professionals for your needs after retirement can sometimes be challenging. As your life enters a new stage, having a compassionate and knowledgeable senior-focused as a part of your team is very important.
At the SeniorSelect Center, we have curated a caring, knowledgeable, and passionate team to cater to each patient and their individual needs. Our services include the care of Dr. Mills, a Central Ohio Primary Care (COPC) physician and an expert in senior medicine.
The Mills mission
Dr. Mills’ passion is to help every patient that he works with to improve their lives and feel their best. Taking care of your health as a senior is one of the most critical steps to having a long and enjoyable retirement. Dr. Mills believes that the role of physicians who care for seniors is to provide holistic primary care to every patient and he is proud to be part of a clinic like SeniorSelect.
Dr. Mills’ background
A lifelong passionate internal medicine physician, Dr. Stephen Mills began by earning his Bachelor of Science in Zoology and his Master of Arts in Physical Education and Exercise Physiology from The Ohio State University. He received his Doctor of Osteopathy from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine, after which he completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Aultman Hospital/Timken Mercy Medicine Center in Canton. He is board certified in internal medicine and has been practicing for over 25 years. In 2021, Dr. Mills relocated from Findlay, Ohio to Columbus to be closer to his family. He is a member of the American Geriatric Society, a triathlete, and is always searching for new ways to pursue his passion for helping seniors lead healthier and happier lives.
SeniorSelect Center’s care team
The team at SeniorSelect is comprised of clinicians and healthcare professionals that specialize in senior care. SeniorSelect’s goal is to provide each patient with individualized, patient-centered and holistic healthcare services. SeniorSelect is leading the revolution in senior primary care. Our team is committed to the highest clinical and ethical standards, nurturing relationships with every patient and using our expertise to enhance the modernization of primary care.
Combined with the expertise of COPC senior care physicians and medical professionals, we have developed an easy process to integrate a new patient into our practice. Once you have toured our clinic and chosen to become a patient, we will begin offering the appropriate services to meet your unique medical needs and help you reach your healthcare goals.
The SeniorSelect Center Journey
When integrating senior-focused primary care and care coordination, we prioritize listening and learning about your health, social, and mental health journey. During the first 30 days of your time with SeniorSelect, we complete a Life Care 360 assessment, which provides our SeniorSelect Guides with the information they need to help our patients connect with resources to address issues like Medicare premium assistance, medication affordability, and housing. The Life Care 360 assessment is done annually to make sure we are uncovering new needs and addressing them as they arise. Throughout the year, our SeniorSelect Guides provide Life Care Monitoring to ensure that our patients are happy with the care they receive and solicit feedback on how we can improve our care and better support them.
We also offer Life Care Plus, a free one-on-one service coordination consultation and Life Enrichment activities that promote healthy lifestyles through fitness and diet classes and connections with other SeniorSelect patients committed to improving their health.
Through our collaboration with COPC, we offer a wide array of health programs to meet all of your medical needs. We offer fitness, diet, tobacco cessation, and stress management classes and we host COPC’s musculoskeletal program that teaches participants how to use movement to manage pain and improve gait and balance. Through COPC’s extensive health care network, patients have access to the Memory Assessment Center, Radiology, Cardiology, Pulmonology, and much more! Though COPC provides services for patients of all ages, the SeniorSelect Center caters specifically to older adults. Your family can rest easy knowing that you are in the best hands and that our programs will support you through the many stages of aging.
Here are just some of the things our actual patients have to say about their experiences with SeniorSelect:
“I live by myself–I am by myself–and it would be easy for me to get used to being completely by myself. So my favorite part [of SeniorSelect] is knowing that I can come here every day and be with other people. There’s so much to do and find here.”
“When you come, you don’t have to wait all day for your appointment. They get right on it!”
“I love how, whenever you have a question, they will always find somebody to help answer you. I just like the homeliness, the closeness, of SeniorSelect.”
“If I talk to a friend who needs a new health facility, I always ask, ‘Well, have you tried SeniorSelect? I guarantee you’re going to like it.’ ”
Helping you stay healthy and active
What separates SeniorSelect from other providers is that we don’t just offer you the best medical services in Columbus. Our mission is to enhance your entire life, not just your physical health, which is why we’ve built our Center around a model of community. Sometimes, aging can lead to a social rut. However, our engaging programs—including bingo, scavenger hunts, crafting, health lectures, and exercise programs—are designed to enhance and expand your social life. The best part about it is that you can choose to participate in as many or as few activities as you’d like and select the ones that best fit your interests.
Expand your community; enhance your horizons
While the SeniorSelect Center will provide you with a bevy of resources, including experts in senior care and various health services, retirement is much more than healthcare. While seeking out medical services is a necessary and important element of this stage in life, you are at an age that allows you to explore new sides of yourself. Your retirement can be the most enjoyable time of your life if you prioritize your health and start exploring new hobbies, making new friends, and discovering a community you never knew you needed.
