WCM Physician (What is this?)

Personal Statement

I have always loved older adults. It was my training in geriatrics that introduced me to the field of palliative care. The physicians who shaped me during my geriatric fellowship here at Cornell demonstrated the patience, empathy, and communication skills that are so vital to both geriatrics and palliative care. I feel humbled and privileged to take care of patients and families who are living with serious, often life-threatening illnesses. Our multidisciplinary team provides pain management, symptom relief, and emotional support to patients and families in need of comfort.
