A geriatrician is a physician with additional training in caring for the elderly.
An internist or family doctor; a geriatrician generally sees individuals that are frail or have complex medical issues. Therefore, some geriatricians may see younger adults too that have multiple medical problems that affect their function(like those with MS or als).
