- Clinical interest for patients
In my clinics I care for patients with serious or life-limiting neurologic disease, focusing on symptom management, coping, planning next steps, and aiding in difficult decision-making. I have a keen interest in identifying the unique palliative care needs of specific populations with neurologic diseases, to identify how best we can help them as a team.
In the hospital setting I work with the inpatient Palliative care consult team focusing on relief of pain, stress, and other distressing symptoms of all serious illnesses.
*It is never too early to receive Palliative Care when living with a serious illness.*
