Know any good gerontologists or internists for older people?

My Dad is having a lot of health problems and just got out of the hospital; his internist was out of town and didn't have a backup doctor so my Dad didn't have his own doctor seeing him in the hospital and had to rely on busy, random docs who don't know him. I would like to find someone who genuinely cares, has hospital privileges, doesn't dismiss his problems as all being just because he's old, and someone really sharp who can think outside of the box. Of course, don't we all want to find that in a doc?  :)
