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.
