I am deeply sad to tell you that I must close my medical practice in Tucson. I have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. My last day in practice will be December 31, 2021.
It has been a privilege to take care of you, to have you trust me with your health care. I have tried my best to make a practice that is simple and accessible. I hope I have been able to make a positive difference in your health journey. My relationships with patients have been some of the most meaningful in my life.
Because I now have to deal with my own illness, I won’t be as fully available as I wish I could be. I also wish I had someone to recommend to you, but I don’t. Most of the doctors I would highly recommend aren’t taking new patients. Ask your friends and family whom they recommend. This is one of the best ways to find a new doctor. You can also ask your insurance, if you have it, to see who takes your plan and is taking new patients. Another good resource is the Pima County Medical Society.
I can prescribe your medications up until December 31st, 2021, with refills into the new year. I will not be able to write prescriptions after that date.
Your medical records belong to you. Please call in advance to request them, and we will arrange a convenient time for you to pick them up.
This practice has been a dream come true for me and it breaks my heart to ask you to find another doctor. I wish you the best of health and happiness in the future.
Take good care of yourself,
Laurie A Thomas MD
