It’s a blessing that the state of California provides qualifying patients with an option. Nobody should have to suffer. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Bob Uslander for his professionalism, sensitivity and care.

They transformed a very difficult situation into a peaceful, comfortable, and spiritual experience. They were not only supportive of my mother, who was facing end of life, but also offered so much support, patience, and guidance.
