Visiting Practitioners was founded in 2010 by Dr. Lyn O'Brien, NP, board certified in both adult and geriatric medicine, with the vision of creating a geriatric-focused medical practice for elders and the disabled confined to their home.  We understand that many elders find it taxing to leave their home due to transportation issues, medical issues, and safety concerns. By visiting our patients at home, we can provide personalized, high-quality care in a comfortable setting.  In addition, we can formulate a reality-based treatment plan that considers the patient's environmental status, physical and mental limitaions, and resources.
