It has been my pleasure to serve our community for the past 47 years as a family physician. I have had the privilege of meeting a great many people and developing lifelong friendships with many patients. But, now it is time for me to retire and pass along my patients to the other competent physicians at Company Name Medical.
Please know that all of your medical records are safely on file here at Company Name Medical and remain confidential, as per federal law. If you decide to take on a new physician outside of our practice, then you can follow the traditional routes to have your records transferred.
Over the past five decades, I have watched many families in the area grow and have shared heartache and joy with hundreds of patients. I appreciate your loyalty throughout the years and will take the memories of all that I have experienced with me into my retirement. But medicine is a young man’s game and I need to take my final ride into the sunset.
If you have any questions, you can contact Diane Notion here at the practice. Diane is chief of records. Her phone number is 000-000-0000. My retirement is effective on September 15, 2014. If I do not have an appointment to see you, then I wish you health and happiness.
