After much reflection over the past months, I’ve come to the conclusion that I will not be returning to private practice in the forseeable future. The business model for private practice, as it has been shaped by the forces of regulation and the insurance system, is simply not an ideal fit for the way I practice medicine.
I am touched and humbled by the number of people who have followed this blog and reached out in other ways, and am honored to have participated in the care of each of my patients over the years. My goal was not just to diagnose and treat illness, but also to encourage you to use nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and mindset to find self-healing. I hope that you will continue to embrace those concepts and feel empowered to be an active participant in your own healthcare.
Much love and appreciation to you all.
Yours in best health,
We are now preparing records to burn to CD. Each full patient record takes 30 to 40 minutes to prepare and burn. We have several people working on this process to fulfill all requests as quickly as possible. However, with over 1,000 requests for records, it may take up to 60 days to prepare and send all records requested. If you have requested your records, please be assured that you will receive it by mail as soon as it is complete. Your patience is very much appreciated!
Change is the only constant in life. After 23 years in practice and almost 11 years at the King Plow location, it is time for me to make a change: Midtown West Medical will close permanently at noon on Wednesday, November 27, 2013. This is a necessary business decision, made not lightly but with a heavy heart. I will be taking a sabbatical during the months after the practice closes to find a new opportunity in medicine that fits well for me.
The patient/physician relationship is a deep bond, and it has been an honor and a privilege for my staff and for me personally to care for you. I hope that we have served you well and given you some tools for self-healing along the way.
I truly love being a physician and I am humbled that so many of you have entrusted me with your care! I do intend to return to medicine, so please follow this blog for updates on my next position by clicking the “Follow” button in the bottom right hand corner of this page. You’ll receive an email when I post new information.
Wishing each of you abundance in health,
