If you want to avoid any legal or license issues good cause to leave the employment is possible, however you should consider the following steps, to ensure you protect yourself.
1. Consider sending the employer a detailed letter stating what happened during the incident, and his patter of harassment since you mentioned you would be leaving.

would verbal abuse and ridicule in front of co-workers and patients be considered good cause? I have witnesses and this has happened more than once

2. Consider filing or threatening to file an EEOC or State Civil Rights case for age discrimination.
Yes, verbal abuse, defamation, could be good cause,
however, in order to have a stong case, you need to inform the employer of the hostile environment you face due to your age,
and ask him to stop.
If he fails to rectify the situation, after notice, then if you resign you would have a strong case for leaving with "good cause".
Your letter will show that the employer had notice of the incidents at work, and your concerns, and the fact they did not respond, shows that they allowed it to continue, so you can argue that you had no choice but to leave.
If you file a State complaint, that would support your case as well.
In Massachusetts, it is possible to file a discrimination claim either with the state administrative agency, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) or the federal administrative agency, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
To file a claim with the MCAD, contact the closest office below. More information about filing a claim with MCAD can be found at http://www.workplacefairness.org/link?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mass.gov%2Fmcad%2F.

I would send a letter detailing the issues at work, and file an official complaint, if nothing changes within a weeks submit your letter of resignation.
