My Dear Patients,
As we enter the Holiday Season, I am reminded of all the many blessings God has given me. He has enriched my life in so many ways. He has given me the knowledge, skill, and ability to care and to serve each of you. It has been an incredible journey over these 45 years of practicing medicine. But it is time for me to take the road less traveled and explore what makes me happy outside of work. And so, I will be closing my practice and my office at the close of day, Friday, December 15, 2023. Any skincare products that you are presently using can be purchased on Amazon.
For those wanting copies of their records:
Effective 12-20-23 we have retained Cariend, a medical records custodian, to manage the records for the next 7 years for adults, and up to 20 years for pediatrics. Cariend is not a medical provider and does not handle billing, medications, or referrals for the practice.
Requestors should be prepared to complete the Records Release Authorization Form and provide a copy of government-issued photo ID, as required by HIPAA. The fastest way to process requests for copies of medical records is to visit Cariend’s website and submit your contact information at the link below – you will then be sent an email with instructions to securely upload your authorization form and ID: https://www.cariend.com/request-records/
If you do not have access to a computer or internet, Cariend can be reached by phone at 404- 991-7080 – please note the HIPAA laws do not allow medical records to be released based on a phone or email request.
If you prefer to mail your completed Authorization Form and Government-issued Photo ID: Cariend ROI, PO Box 1866, Thomasville, GA 31799-1866
If you have questions about the process, Cariend can also be contacted via email at Request@Cariend.com however, you should not send sensitive personal information or request documents through email.
It has been an honor and a privilege for me to not just be your physician, but to get to know YOU. Thank you for this opportunity. God’s peace to you and may you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
