I was raised by my grandparents. While practicing another medical specialty my grandfather was diagnosed with dementia and my grandmother with metastatic breast cancer. Watching them struggle through these illnesses changed my life. I completed additional training in palliative medicine and have been fulfilled ever since. I am driven to do this because of the wonderful relationships patients, their loved ones, and I forge. It is my hope that my clinical work is a reflection of the love and care I received from my grandparents.
