Dr. Bob Uslander received his BS in Biology at the University of Illinois (Summa Cum Laude), and is a graduate of the UCLA School of Medicine (AOA Honor Society). He completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois Affiliated Hospitals. Dr. Bob is board certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine and is a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), the California Medical Association and the San Diego County Medical Association. While his training was in emergency medicine, his career has evolved toward taking care of the elderly and those nearing the end of their lives.
Since 2003, he has focused on creating and working with practices and programs that help the elderly and clinically complex members of the community receive excellent health care. In 2003 Dr. Bob created Sierra Housecalls Medical Group to provide medical care to the homebound and elderly members of his Northern California community. In 2004, he helped form Seniority Life Care at Home, a provider of non-medical in-home care for seniors, which allows them to remain in their own homes more safely and independently. He was a founder and past president of Sierra LifeNet, a non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the frail elderly, including the operation of a local Adult Day Health Care program.
