It is with much gratitude that I write this letter to you and announce my retirement. After nearly 35 years in practice,I have decided to retire and begin the next chapter of my life. Each and every one of you has enriched my life as we have gotten to know each other and yes, I will miss you.
I want you to know that the trust and faith that you have placed in me is an honor that I take very seriously and this is why I have chosen to not sell my practice but simply to ask a colleague whom I trust and respect to care for you. This doctor is Dr. Donald Altman my neighbor on the 10th floor of 16300 Sand Canyon and friend.
Dr. Altman, a board certified plastic surgeon has been in practice for over 20 years and has the same, caring careful approach to patients that I have. I am very aware of the high quality of his work and the excellent results and testimonials he continues to receive from his patients.
I fully trust Dr. Altman to offer you excellent, professional care, and to inform and guide you through your aesthetic and medical concerns. Dr. Altman and his friendly staff will welcome you and answer any questions you may have. If you wish to schedule an initial consultation, please call Dr. Altman’s office at (949) 727-3999. It is your decision whether or not to seek care from Dr. Altman.
Please let us know if you wish to receive a copy of your patient files prior to their transfer to Dr. Altman’s office. On receipt of a signed, HIPPA-compliant authorization form, my office will forward a copy of your medical records to you or to the physician you designate. Our contact information is (949) 727-0102, 16300 Sand Canyon Avenue, Suite 1007, Irvine, CA 92618.
