Living with a serious illness can be challenging in so many ways. If you are visiting this website because you or a loved on is seriously ill you may be dealing with pain and other uncomfortable symptoms, fearful about your future or concerned about how your loved ones are coping with your illness. We hope the information and guidance you find here will be helpful.
We are doctors who specialize in palliative medicine, a type of care that prevents and alleviates suffering. We have special training and expertise in relieving pain and other symptoms caused by your illness or your medical treatments. We can provide guidance as you make decisions about your care, and we work as part of a team that helps you and your loved ones find the emotional or spiritual support you need.
Palliative care is for people of any age, and at any stage in an illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic or life-threatening. Palliative medicine specialists work alongside and support your other doctors, who may be providing treatments to cure or reverse the course of your illness. If a cure is out of reach, we can provide palliative medicine through a hospice program, helping you focus on quality time with your loved ones.
With a focus on comfort and compassion, we are committed to helping you and your loved ones meet the challenges of your illness and live each day as fully as possible.
