Practice Closing

Dear patients and friends:

After 16 years in practice in Summit County, I am writing to inform you that I will be closing my practice on July 10, 2015. I will be available to serve your medical needs until that date.

Please contact your primary care physician for help in finding another pain management specialist. I realize this may be difficult so I am trying to give you as much notice as possible. You m ay download a list of pain physicians in the area whom you may want to contact.

My office will forward your medical records to you or your new physician. Unfortunately, your medical records cannot be released without a written authorization from you. For your convenience, you may download an authorization form for you to complete and return to the office once you have selected a new physician. Assuming I receive your completed authorization form prior to my last day of practice, there will not be a charge for copying your record. All authorization forms received after July 10th will be subject to a reasonable copying fee to cover the cost of duplication.

Thank you for having chosen me as your pain management physician. It has been my pleasure and honor to serve you. I wish you health and wellness.

Kindest regards,
Ross Dickstein MD
