"During my medical career, I have seen so many patients with terminal illness not understand or even have hospice care presented as an option. Sometimes they have their final days of life in the hospital when it was truly not what they had wanted. I am passionate about hospice because I want everyone to be aware of these wonderful services."
— Dr. Reichmuth
