NO! We support doing whatever you, your family and your primary health care team feel is right for you. Many of the patients we see are receiving treatments, such as:
- Chemotherapy or radiation for cancer
- Cardiac procedures (angiography or pacemakers, and surgery)
- Clinical trials (offering experimental approaches for your condition)
If difficult decisions about treatments arise, we can help you sort through the options. Palliative Care does not replace your primary treatment; it works to support the care you are receiving to improve your quality of life.
