    Philosophy of Care

    It is a great privilege to work with a dedicated, passionate healthcare team committed to providing high-quality care to older adults at PAMF. I am truly blessed to work with a diverse, dynamic patient population.

    Our mission is to develop innovative ways to better care for older people across the whole spectrum. From maximizing quality of life and independence to bringing compassionate, coordinated care during a serious illness, there are many great rewards and challenges in this field. Ultimately, my goal is to make sure that the treatment you receive matches your preferences and that we provide comprehensive, patient-centered care as we strive to age successfully.
