" I like to tell my patients that the health care system is like a giant conveyor belt carrying you along with “evidence-based guidelines” and “standard practice”. People feel pushed and prodded, confused and stressed by a system that doesn’t listen well. My role is to get to know you as a person and understand what makes you, well you. What brings you joy and meaning and purpose? What causes pain and stress? Once I understand you, then we can talk about how to give you more joy in life and time with those you love. And I think that is the purpose of CareAlly. "
