Dr. Autumn Drouin sent this letter to all of her patients earlier this week, and we wanted to be sure that everyone know of her impending retirement. Dr. Drouin has been a tremendous asset to our practice for the past five years, and we will miss her tremendously! Dr. Drouin is available to wrap up with patients through January, so please contact the office if you would like to schedule an appointment to see her. You can also schedule free informational interview appointments with either Dr. Lutrin or Dr. Levy to determine if you will transfer care to another doctor in the practice. We wish Dr. Drouin well in her future endeavors!
Dear Patients —
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from active practice, effective January 19, 2017. It has been my pleasure to serve our community for the past 4 years as a family doctor. I am grateful to have met many great people and developed lifelong friendships with many patients.
If you want to schedule a final visit with me, please call the office at 925-949-8604 to schedule an appointment. After my retirement, I will pass on my patients to the other competent doctors at Tara Natural Medicine. I am glad to leave my patients in their capable hands. Of course, you may seek medical care from another doctor if you prefer.
Medical records are confidential, and a copy of your records or your child’s records can be released to you, transferred to another doctor or released to another person you designate only with your permission. If you choose to see a different physician or have your file sent to you, please sign the enclosed authorization form and return it to my office as soon as possible so we may transfer your records in a timely fashion. Until then, your records will remain on file at Tara Natural Medicine. The fee for transferring your file to you or to another medical office is $25. If you have any questions, please contact our front office staff at 925-949-8604.
For over two decades, I have watched many families grow and have shared joy and heartache with hundreds of patients. I appreciate your loyalty throughout the years and will take the memories of all that I have experienced with me into my retirement. I have greatly valued our relationship, and I thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years.
Best wishes for your future health.
Autumn Drouin, ND
