"My focus of care is on patients with chronic and life limiting-illnesses and their families. I feel that health care is interdisciplinary, requiring a team approach, including the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual aspects that require professionals with different training and expertise. I spend a lot of time listening to patients and families to determine their goals and what is important to them at each stage of an illness. Then we work together to achieve the control of their symptoms, improve their quality of life, and meet their goals."
