Practice Philosophy: Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. I collaborate with other providers on my patient’s health care team to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. My goals are to provide care that honors my patients’ values and to provide healing that meets the whole person, by addressing their physical, psychosocial and spiritual concerns. I take the time to hear patients’ concerns and to tailor care to meet the unique needs of each person.
