Dr. Bob Uslander, MD
Medical Director & Palliative Care Physician

Bob Uslander, MD, is the medical director and founder of Integrated MD Care in San Diego, California. With 30+ years of experience as an emergency and palliative care and hospice physician, Dr. Bob specializes in providing concierge medicine services while fostering deep connections with patients and families throughout their major health and life challenges.

Dr. Bob believes that effective care is more than simply keeping patients comfortable. He believes it is vital to address the whole person and their physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs to ensure the best quality of life possible.

He strives to foster deep connections with his patients and their families who are experiencing health challenges and guide them in making the best decisions about their care. His goal is to ensure patients enjoy the greatest sense of peace and well-being as they go through the stages of aging and complex illness until their final breath.

On behalf of his patients and families, Dr. Bob collaborates with other physicians in the San Diego area and throughout Southern California. His gentle and communicative manner brings families together to support their loved ones. He takes a “village” approach in providing health care, meaning he focuses on what’s important to his patients rather than their condition. This allows him to deliver the best care possible to ensure his patients are comfortable and at peace.

After more than 30 years in the medical field, Dr. Bob understands that the most valuable gift he can offer as a physician and a human being is to listen and empathize with his patients and families. His experience as an emergency physician and a palliative care and hospice physician, combined with his personal experience of caring for friends and family members through illness and death, has given him a unique perspective that allows him to be a genuine and effective patient navigator, guide, advocate, and friend.

Dr. Bob graduated summa cum laude from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign with his Bachelor of Science in biology. He then attended the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles, California, where he earned his Doctor of Medicine and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago, Il.
Prior to establishing Integrated MD Care, Dr. Bob practiced as an emergency physician in Chicago, Guam and Sonora, Ca. From 2013 to 2015 he served as the Medical Director for Palliative Care and Hospice at LightBridge Medical Associates in San Diego, California.

Transformational Counselor & Co-Creator

Rev. Elizabeth Uslander has been with Integrated MD Care since it’s second year, 2017. In partnership with our founder, Dr. Bob, she has co-created the “Medicine for the Body and the Soul” model of Palliative and End of Life Care, and intimately serves our patients as families in their Palliative and End of Life Care journeys. Together they have founded Empowered Endings to teach their proven model and further the social paradigm shift in creating Empowered End of Life Experiences. She is also the founder of her private practice, Voyages LLC, providing exceptional care to clients seeking counseling without clinical care and alternative support not traditionally available in the medical model.

Elizabeth is a loving counselor who works closely with her clients to heal the wounds of a lifetime and navigate life’s major transitions. She supports her clients through deep, nurturing interpersonal relationships as she guides them in transforming their experience of life. Elizabeth’s unique therapeutic and educational modality that integrates Eastern & Western, modern & ancient, traditional & alternative, clinical & spiritual principles and practices to bring nourishing alignment to each individual’s mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and social experience.

Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, in ethics and social justice from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She then completed her Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary, also in Washington, DC., before graduating cum laude from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles with her Master of Social Work. Following her ordination in the ecumenical Universal Life Church Ministry in 2007, Elizabeth has served as a Medical Social Worker and Spiritual Counselor in the fields of spiritual transformation, grief and bereavement counseling, palliative and end of life care, family and couples’ counseling, mental health and addiction recovery, multicultural social justice movements, community resource development, and early childhood development and education.

Elizabeth’s greatest passion is to help those in transition and crisis see the light of possibility, empower them to become who they were born to be, and support them in living with the peace, joy and love we all deserve. To that end, she created an original counseling modality: Transformational Transitions Therapy© (TTT©). This process is a unique approach that facilitates transformation in individuals and family systems through six simple steps: Awaken to who you are, Embrace your vulnerability and power, Envision your ideal, Release the limitations to being, Nourish the possibilities and Surrender to the process of becoming. The journey weaves together elements of wisdom traditions and evidence-based models to support you in creating your optimal experience of life, even in the face of life’s most challenging changes.
