My Vision:

Palliative Care As the Standard of Care for All Patients with Serious Illness 

Inspired by my mother's journey through serious illness and the complexities of the health system, as a specialist physician in hospice and palliative medicine, I aim to improve the lives of patients and their loved ones and teach other clinicians how to do the same.


Palliative Care is
Whole-Person Care... for Life

The philosophy and practice of palliative care is a holistic approach to living well in the face of serious illness right from the moment of diagnosis. Palliative care is comprehensive care that empowers patients to live their lives fully for as long as they want, living life on their own terms.


Palliative care is seeing beyond the disease to understand the entirety of the person, their values, lived experience, hopes, and fears, in the context of their home and community. The aim is to understand the person, to center on what is important, and to bring that to bear through clear communication and the practice of common-sense, innovative, and evidence-based medicine. 

Palliative care isn't just about living long... it's about living well too.
