To my patients:
To begin, I would like to thank you for the trust you have given me over the years as your physician. Taking care of you has been an honor for my staff and me. Your continuing wellness and health are priorities for us.
I have made the decision to close my practice effective December 8, 2022. I will be available until that date for your care.
It is important that you continue with appropriate medical care, therefore, you should establish contact with another physician as soon as possible.
