It is with many wonderful memories and much emotion that I am sharing news of my retirement from pediatric practice. I have spent the last thirty-four years learning, caring, sharing, and enjoying my interactions with you, as parents, and your precious children. The trust you placed in me and the responsibility I assumed was not taken lightly.
I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to advise you and watch your children grow, in many cases into happy and healthy young adults. We have persevered through some rough waters and celebrated many achievements. Sharing these moments with you has given me great purpose and fulfillment.
I have looked forward to this time of my life: a time to pursue personal interests and the ability to share more time with my family members. The time is right and I remain your advocate and friend, looking forward to watching from a distance all the good things to come.
I wish you and your children happiness and health in the days ahead!!
