Long Term Care
Amy Rohlfing, MD, CMD, holds the unique distinction of being board certified in both internal medicine and geriatrics. This means that she has a deeper understanding of complex diseases and patients age 50+.
Dr. Rohlfing serves as a Hospitalist at Red Bud Regional Hospital. Her background in primary care and her years of service at Red Bud Regional provide her with a strong foundation for caring for inpatients and for effective communication with the patient’s primary care provider.
In addition to her hospitalist role, Dr. Rohlfing makes it convenient for her patients to receive medical care while living at a long term care or assisted living facility. Instead of her patients traveling to her office, Dr. Rohlfing goes to her patient at the long term care or assisted living facilities. She performs the same type of care that she would perform in the clinic, in the comfort of their home instead.
Dr. Rohlfing obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from St. Louis University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She received her medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in internal medicine at St. John’s Mercy Medical and her fellowship in geriatrics at Washington University School of Medicine.
