It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing the closure of my practice, effective June 1, 2018. I will not be
available to attend to your medical needs after that date. It has been a great pleasure providing your health care
over the years.
Dr. James Little will be taking over my duties. I am pleased that you have the opportunity to have him as your
physician. He was trained at The University of Chicago Medical School, and did his Internal Medicine residency at
The University of Michigan Medical Center. I am glad to have left you in his capable hands. From our office, Geri
Garlo PA-C, Deb Tollafield, CMA, and Sue Robinson, referral specialist, will be joining Dr. Little's practice. Your
charts will be there automatically. His office number is (586) 826-8932 and he is in Suite 100 in the same building.
Of course, you may seek medical care from another physician if you prefer. If you are not acquainted with a
physician, you may use your insurance company’s provider directory or check with the hospital’s physician referral
service. Once you have identified a physician or practice, please contact my office by June 1, 2018 to obtain
copies of your medical record. After June 1, 2018 call (586) 826-8932.
If you decide to find a new physician (not Dr. Little), a copy of your medical records can be transferred to
another physician or released to you only with your permission. For your convenience, I have attached a records
release authorization. There will be a fee of between $25 - $67+, depending on number of pages requested, to
make copies of your chart to cover copy and transmittal costs. As the office is actually closing, it is important to
transfer your records as soon as possible.
I have greatly valued our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. Best wishes
for your future health and happiness.
