Bay Area End of Life Options closed to new patients as of August, 2020.

Patients seeking aid-in-dying care can now find a supportive physician by using the Patient to Doctor Referral System of the American Clinicians Academy on Medical Aid in Dying.  Please use their Patient Intake Form.

Be sure to first ask all of your current health providers if they will evaluate your request to consider medical aid in dying — either as attending/prescribing doctor or as the consulting (second-opinion) physician. More and more doctors are now working with aid-in-dying requests from their patients, so do not hesitate to ask.

Questions to Bay Area End of Life Options are now directed by email to:
