Palliative Care Team​ ​
​  Lisa Podgurski, MD
A physician-led team carefully evaluates each patient's needs and goals and develops tailored treatment plans that include the management of pain and other physical symptoms. We also help patients and their families plan for home care or hospice care while addressing psychological and spiritual concerns.
Working with the patient's team of primary health care providers, we strive to help the patient maintain a high quality of life for as long as possible.
