WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Palliative care is a relatively new field of medicine that helps patients and families facing serious illness focus on quality of life. A lot involves trying to understand their needs, hopes and goals, and being a presence for them to ask questions. My style is to go in with a gentle touch. A lot of people have misconceptions about what is palliative care and think the worst. So they’re very fearful about what will happen when I see them. I generally just ask questions and get a sense of what is going on and what their worries are, and try to allay a lot of their fears. I’m really here to be their cheerleader and walk the journey with them. My grandfather passed away when I was about 12 from lung cancer, and I saw him and my family suffer through that period of time. It was an influence on my decision to become a doctor and aid the suffering of those with cancer.
