In brief: No! Why?
Regardless of whether you have pectus excavatum (hollow chest) or pectus carinatum (pigeon chest) makes no difference to me as a geriatrician.
While it may affect your heart & lungs, it matters not in what i think of you as a patient. I think that's your concern, right?

In brief: Depends
There is no set age for patients if under the care by a geriatrician.
However it is up to a geriatrician to take your case.
