Beyond treating current medical conditions, UCF Health’s geriatric team takes a holistic approach to senior care. By understanding a patient’s past illnesses, their ability to handle activities of daily living, the support structure in place, psychological attitudes and personal goals, an individualized healthcare plan can be developed.

During each visit, the physician also takes great care to ensure that medications are appropriate, as well as evaluates the patient’s memory to detect any sudden declines. This is done in a manner that is medically sound, while remaining respectful of the patient’s fears and concerns.

In addition, our geriatric specialist works closely with seniors and their caregivers to ensure the right accommodations are made for the safety and wellbeing of the patient, from fall-prevention strategies within the home to emergency assistance plans. When patients are no longer able to live independently or under the care of a family member or friend, the geriatric team can provide guidance about the many assisted living options.

  • I have visited many doctors before and nothing like Dr. Dangiolo! To be honest I had been looking for a doctor like her for a long time and I finally found her. She sit down with me to hear all my concerns which is wonderful because most doctors doesn’t even sit down with you like she did. She even asked me how I was doing with my personal life and how I was feeling recently. She is very human and knowledgeable. Awesome doctor I highly recommend her and all the staff. Nurse lily and even the receptionist was very helpful and patient. They all speak English and Spanish also.

    I found this doctor back in 2012 after I was looking for a clinic closer to my house. I went to UCF Pegasus, part of UCF College of Medicine for many years. Then the doctor relocated to the new UCF at Lake Nona and even though it was much farther away, my whole family decided to follow Dr. Dangiolo. Because she is that good! If you need a doctor that cares and takes their time with you, she is the one!!
