As you may already be aware, I will be retiring from medical practice and closing the Arthritis Treatment Center (ATC) before the end of this year. It has been an honor to care for you and to be a part of the Frederick medical community for the past X years.
Though I am very sorry to say goodbye to all of my patients, I am pleased to inform you that another excellent rheumatology practice will begin seeing patients in my office upon my retirement.
With 18 physicians and 5 offices in the metro D.C. area, Arthritis and Rheumatism Associates, P.C. (ARA) is one of the largest rheumatology practices in the country and they bring a national reputation for high quality care and research. I have no hesitation in recommending that you continue your care with ARA and have the highest confidence that you will be pleased with their physicians and staff. In fact, you’ll probably see a few familiar faces! I’ve enclosed their brochure for your convenience.
Should you decide that you would like to continue your care with ARA, please contact them at 301-942-7600 to find out more about the practice and to schedule an appointment. If you would prefer to continue your care elsewhere, you may request your medical record by calling my office until we permanently close on December xx, 2017. After that time, your record will be stored on site by ARA and you may request it from them by calling 301-942-7600.
