"Thank you so much for the thorough job you did with our mother’s evaluation. I was very impressed with the clarity with which you communicated your findings to us as well as with your compassion and diplomacy on some sensitive issues. You have provided us with the clear and unbiased direction we needed to move forward with a plan that is in our mother’s best interest. I am not sure we would have gotten there with any confidence without you. You are providing a great service with tremendous readily recognizable value."
Timothy L. Flanagan, Esquire
"I have known Dr. Gary Oberlender since 2006 and have utilized his professional services on multiple occasions in my work as an elder law attorney. Dr. Oberlender has assisted me in obtaining the documentation necessary to pursue guardianship for incapacitated persons. This can become difficult if the person refuses to be evaluated by a physician or their physician is reluctant to offer a medical opinion on the client’s capacity. Dr. Oberlender has successfully overcome these and other difficulties. He travels to the client’s home and establishes a rapport that allows him to make an objective medical assessment. At other times I have asked Dr. Oberlender for his professional medical opinion regarding a client’s capacity to sign estate planning and other legal documents, which can serve as evidence if their capacity is subsequently challenged. I have found Dr. Oberlender to be professional, timely and honest in all of his work and I heartily recommend him."

I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Oberlender in an intimate fashion at the Salem VA hospital. It was during this time that I became especially familiar with his work as a physician, leader, and person. His skills and abilities as a geriatric physician were excellent and beyond reproach. His interpersonal skills with patients, coworkers, and colleagues were unsurpassed and his communication skills similarly were superb. It was certainly a pleasure to work with him and I always found him facilitating, approachable, diligent, and responsive. His professionalism, integrity, honesty, and objectivity were hallmarks of his practice of medicine.
I trust that others may be able to experience the excellence that he can offer. It is with these thoughts that I unreservedly recommend and endorse Dr. Oberlender’s practice of geriatrics.
