Recognized as industry leaders, Capital Caring’s doctors are board-certified* palliative medicine physicians. We medically manage pain and symptoms associated with cancer, heart disease, stroke, pulmonary disease, Alzheimer’s, ALS, HIV/AIDS, neurological diseases and other serious and chronic progressive conditions. This also includes experiences of side effects from treatments, the disease, or emotional stress that progressive illness can bring.
