- Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.

Dr. Waugh is truly gifted. I went to First Choice Emergency Room after an unfortunate meeting between my finger and a door. I was panicked. I work in veterinary medicine but when it comes to my own wounds, I tend to get pretty freaked out. To me, the wound looked horrendous. I was convinced my finger was a goner and I was being quite dramatic. The staff was so comforting and truly eased my nerves. I'm so appreciative they were there! Dr. Waugh came in and assessed the situation and assured me it was not quite as traumatic as I thought. She gave me pain medication and made sure I was comfortable and sutured the wound. She explained every step of the process and what I would need to do to care for the wound and my fractured finger. She asked me to call with any concerns I had. Later that day, I was concerned about the bandage and and the bleeding from my finger. I thought it would probably be ok but wanted to make sure. She invited me to come back and have the bandage changed at no additional charge. I was concerned because I was home with my two small children and didn't know how they would act while I was getting my bandage changed. Dr. Waugh brought in a coloring book for the kids and sat with them while Eddy (RN) changed my bandage. Everyone was so friendly and wonderful my kids almost didn't want to leave! I had my follow-up appointment with the orthopedist and he said Dr. Waugh did everything he would've done and made their job very easy. The wound is healing beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome! Thanks so much Dr. Waugh, Eddy and Ryan! You all were awesome!
