Co-Medical Director Palliative Care Program at Palomar Health
Chair, Palliative Care Committee at Palomar Health


When I began my training as an Internist, I never imagined that I would move to a career in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. However, over the years, as I listened to my patient’s stories and sat with them in times of crisis, my thoughts turned more and more to the quote from Hippocrates: “Cure sometimes, Treat often, Comfort always”. I am so very grateful every day that I can come to work and care for our patients and families. I think the unique thing about Palliative Care is that we work as a truly interdisciplinary team, incorporating the physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological aspects of our patient’s health into their care plans and decision making.
