How it works

Let’s Talk About It

  Explore Together with your coach

Advance Care Planning

Your coach can help you think about the type of medical care you want as you age and/or live with illness. You are never too young or too healthy to start these conversations.


Direct Your Healthcare

Your coach can help you communicate your goals and wishes with your medical team and ensure that your medical care aligns with your values.

Palliative Care

Your coach can help you understand what palliative care is and how it could help.


Coping with Stress

Your coach can help you cope with the stress of changes in health, an uncertain future, and illness.


Caring for a loved one can simultaneously be a fulfilling and a stressful experience. Your coach can help you better cope with the stress.


Emotional Health

Your coach can help you cope with the uncertainty about your current and future health, and feelings of anxiety, sadness, resilience, and courage. 

Spiritual Health

Your coach can explore how spiritual beliefs impact our response to health and illness, and our ability to cope with stress.

Existential Matters

Uncertainty and serious illness can make you re-evaluate your life. Your coach can help you explore the most essential questions. Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?

Cultural Matters

Your coach can help you navigate situations where the cultural values of an individual and their loved ones conflict with the values of the healthcare system.

Navigating Family Conflict

Changes in health can stress relationships,  often leading to more conflict amongst loved ones. Your coach can help you  navigate this challenge.

Grief and Bereavement

Your coach can help you cope with the loss of a loved one or the anticipated loss of a loved one.


End-of-Life & Hospice Care

Your coach will help you explore end-of-life care options, preferences, and how hospice care can help.


What People Say

“Even though most people think it is important to talk about their preferences for medical care in the event of an emergency or change in health, most people have not had conversations about their preferences and values or do not know where to start. EpioneMD fills that important gap by offering skilled, sensitive, and empathic communication that is tailored to the individual. Dr. Ashwini Bapat is an outstanding palliative care physician with a gift for creating a welcoming space for meaningful dialogue. She has extensive experience working with individuals and teams to ensure that health care is as person-centered as possible.
– Laura A. Petrillo, MD

 “It is my pleasure to endorse Ashwini Bapat and the services of EpioneMD. She is a deeply compassionate physician with an ardent desire to truly help individuals and families who face serious or life threatening illness. She brings a calming and soothing presence to her interactions, even in the most difficult of situations.  Dr. Bapat is an honest, principled and trustworthy professional.  I would recommend her services to my own family. I am confident that Dr. Bapat will be of tremendous help and comfort to whomever seeks her care and services through EpioneMD.”
