Chesapeake Supportive Care Team

Our Chesapeake Supportive Care team (previously known as Chesapeake Palliative Medicine) is a group of Physicians and Nurse Practitioners who specialize in the care of people with advanced illness. We are experts in helping manage pain and other difficult symptoms, and more importantly, we can help guide you along this journey. Many doctors consult us to help patients and their families navigate the health care system, reduce unnecessary suffering and define the goals of care that make sense for you.
