As a board-certified physician in both family medicine and hospice and palliative medicine, Timothy Jessick, DO, specializes in the care and treatment of patients during various stages of illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic or life threatening.
Dr. Jessick focuses on improving a patient's quality of life through palliative care, which involves managing pain and other distressing sypmtoms of serious illness. He listens carefully to his patients and their families, helping them to understand the illness and aligning his treatments to what is important to them. He wants every patient to know that they do have a choice in their long-term health decisions. When necessary, he collaborates with other doctors and clinicians, as well.
