Palliative Care

Palliative care includes medical or surgical methods to ease the pain of a serious or incurable illness.

Palliative care is focused on providing patients with good quality of life.

Patients or families can request a consult from a palliative care doctor when they would like to focus on treating and managing symptoms associated with their illness.
