- 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.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I've only seen Dr. Hailou once! As soon as she walked in the room, I knew she was going to be amazing and she really is. If you can feel so comfortable and trust someone by one doctor visit, that doctor is an angel sent to me from heaven. She makes sure I'm always okay and really cares about YOU. I am most certain she is the perfect doctor. In my eyes she is truly a blessing and I thank her for helping me through my situation.
I can honestly tell you that have seen Dr Hailu once. All other visits were spent with her NP, Sue. Sue is completely worthless. My lab work came in high but her response to it all was, "Well, I see that it's high, but it's not high enough to warrant anything else right now." I told her that I still felt fatigued and her answer was for me to go home and rest more. ?????
