It is with great heartache that I am writing to let you know of my decision to stop practicing with Abilene Children’s Medical Association. This was not an easy decision for me because I have loved caring for your families for the last 11 years. Being your pediatrician has been an honor and I will miss this work dearly. My last day with Abilene Children’s Medical association will be March 20, 2020. If you so choose, the physicians of Abilene Children’s Medical Association will continue to provide quality pediatric care for your children in my absence.
Your medical records are confidential and will remain on file with Abilene Children’s Medical Association. If you choose another physician within our organization, you do not need to take any action concerning your records. I understand that some of you may want to select a new physician outside of our practice. If you choose a physician outside of our clinic, you will need to sign an authorization form before we can release your medical records. Please note, by law we cannot share your medical information without your written consent. You may sign this form at our office, or you may complete the necessary paperwork at your first visit with your new doctor. Please be assured that my staff and I will do everything we can to make the transition as smooth and stress-free as possible.
It has been my great pleasure to know you and your children, to care for them when sick and well, and to watch them grow. I will miss every one of you! I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.
