October 20, 2014
I have been seeing, diagnosing, and treating patients, particularly those with diabetes, for more than forty years. Helping patients has been my lifelong commitment. I have known the greatest satisfaction from this experience. However, I need to let you know that, effective November 1, 2014, we will close the Endocrine Metabolic Medical Center office. This may or may not be permanent and I will keep you informed.
I anticipate that many of you will continue to need the care of a physician. If you need recommendations, my office staff, or I will be pleased to provide you with the names of other qualified physicians.
I have taken great pleasure in knowing each of you, learning about your families and participating in your medical care. My role as a physician is one of partnership with my patients. I firmly believe that is what yields the best possible results. We have very successfully reduced the complications of diabetes for many of you and have avoided hospitalization and other procedures.
The EMMC nurses and office staff are a dedicated group of professionals who share the joy of our many years together.
