Palliative medicine focuses on the many ways that serious illness affects patients and their families. Our goal is to ensure the highest quality of life possible for patients and their families by helping relieve physical and non-physical suffering brought on by one’s disease.
Our physicians provide medical and/or comfort care to reduce the severity of one’s disease or slow its progress.
Individuals are treated regardless of prognosis, and can receive palliative care at any point in their illness. You may benefit from palliative medicine if you have been diagnosed with a serious illness; you or your family need help with decisions regarding medical care; you have uncontrolled pain or other physical, emotional or spiritual symptoms; you or your family need support to cope with your illness.
