Palliative Care
I will honor the goals and wishes of each patient I meet.

Approach To Care

Daniela has a great deal of experience communicating medical information in ways that patients and their families can understand. She recognizes that each person is unique and may have a different view of what it means to live well with illness. She strives to help patients (often those with symptomatic or serious illnesses) by looking at the whole person, understanding his/her/their priorities, reviewing what care options are available and/or recommended, and implementing strategies so patients feel as good as possible.
