Dear Families of The Kids Clinic,

I am writing you to let you know I will be retiring from my practice at the end of November 2022. We will continue to keep the phone and practice hours as before through the months of August and September. As of October and through November, I will reduce my hours to 8:30 am to noon in those months. The practice will formally be closed in December.

August & September normal hours:

          Mon & Fri – phone only 8:30 – 12:00 noon
          Tues, Weds, Thurs – office hours 8:30 – 5:00

October & November reduced hours:
          Mon & Fri – phone only 8:30 – 12:00 noon
          Tues, Weds, Thurs – office and phone hours 8:30 – 12:00 noon

As a young girl I knew I wanted to be a doctor. Once I went to medical school, I discovered my true passion was children. People would ask my “Why pediatrics,”, and I would say “I did not pick pediatrics, pediatrics picked me”. I want to thank you for letting me be your pediatrician for all these years. It has been even more amazing that I have had the privilege of caring for some of the children of the children I cared for when they were young. It has been a joy and privilege to care for you all and I will miss you.

If you require a release of information form for your new provider, go to Our Clinic -> Office Forms -> Medical Records Release on our web site, Once it is completed, signed and dated, please send the form through the Portal or post it to us in US Mail. This request contains Protected Health Information and we do not recommend emailing it to us. We will honor all properly filled out and signed Authorization to Release Protected Health Information forms that we receive, regardless of how you send it to us, however we will only send medical information via CD or to a fax number.
