Palliative Care medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on symptoms of chronic and serious advanced illnesses. These symptoms include your physical symptoms, but also anxiety, stress, coping skills and much more. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their families. Palliative Care office visits are comprehensive and include a 360-degree view of your illness. This allows us to equip you with the necessary skills to cope and manage your illness.
