It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter informing you of my intention to close my medical practice effective August 31, 2020. On the one hand, I look forward to the next phase of my life in retirement, spending more time with my family and friends, and taking it a bit easier after 32 years of practicing medicine in San Antonio. On the other hand, I will miss the valuable and meaningful relationships I have developed with all of my patients. I want to thank you for entrusting me with your care over these many years.
Your medical records are confidential and will be stored and accessible to you upon written request. If you would like a copy of your medical file, please call Lupe Rodriguez at 210.733.0990 or email Lupe at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and she can arrange to have a copy made and available to you for a small fee. If you would like to transfer your records to another provider, please request an authorized medical release form from them.
If you are in need of any refills for your medications, including those that may require lab tests prior to refilling, please contact the office at 210.733.0990 as soon as possible, so that you have adequate supply during the transition period. Please note that I will not be writing any prescriptions after August 31, 2020.
Again, I appreciate the opportunity and privilege of serving you. I will be available to consult with current patients through August 31, 2020. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at email@example.com, and your message will be forwarded to me.
Lawrence M. Cohen, M.D.
