This letter is to inform you that effective June 30, 2015, I will be leaving Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine. It has been an honor and a privilege to care for you.
It is important for you to know that you have a choice of health care providers. The providers at Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine and the other Duke Private Diagnostic clinics (PDC) remain committed to continuing to provide the highest quality care for you and your family.
Carolina Family Practice has recently added four new providers and they are accepting new patients. To schedule a follow-up appointment with any provider at Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine, call 919-238-2000. To find other PDC providers in your area, contact the Duke Consultation and Referral Center at 855-855-6484.
You may, however, choose to seek care elsewhere. Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine and the PDC will assist in the transition of medical records to your new provider. Please inquire at the front desk for an authorization for the release of your medical records. You may obtain your medical records by mailing the completed form to: Duke University Hospital, Health Information Management Department, Attn: Medical Information Release Unit, DUMC Box 3016, Durham, NC 27710. If you have any questions about the transfer of your medical records, contact the Duke University Hospital Health Information Release Unit at 919-384-7119.
I apologize for any inconvenience that my departure may cause. The providers and staff at Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine and the PDC continue to be available to offer you the highest quality medical care possible. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 919-238-2000.
