After long consideration and anxious deliberation, I have decided to
retire from my medical practice. The economics of the Covid Epidemic

without it. This will be effective 12/15/2021. After this date, the portal will
no longer be available.

Please arrange to have another physician take care of you. 
There will be a LIST OF OBGYNS under the office tab->

If you have not found another provider you can always check with your
insurance company’s provider directory.

physician or practice, please contact our office no later than 11/15/2021
to obtain copies of your medical record, as it may take up to 2 weeks in
processing, as everyone is requesting records.

fill out a Medical Records Release Form, which is found under the
office tab or at your new physician’s office.
