Palliative Care

Palliative care is for people of any age, at any stage of illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic, or life threatening.

In the clinic, you will have a 60-minute appointment with a Mission Heritage Medical Group hospitalist, specializing in Palliative medicine. The doctor will discuss your condition, treatment plan and address any concerns.
