Dear Valued Patient,
I have made the difficult decision to close my practice as of March 1, 2021. You may see me for your remaining scheduled appointments through February 23, 2021.
Because I want to be certain you continue to receive the best possible care, I am transitioning your care over to Dr. Lifei Guo. Dr. Guo is a respected plastic surgeon and practices at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. I am please to let you know he will be taking over your care as of March 1, 2021. You can contact his office located at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, 41 Mall Road, Burlington, MA 01805 or by calling 781-744-5760. At this time, his office will ask you to authorize release of your records to him for your continuing care.
I have the utmost confidence in recommending Dr. Lifei Guo for your continued care and will be working closely with him to ensure a smooth transition, and the continuity of your care.
If you desire to have your records sent to another physician of your choosing, please send us a signed request indicating the name and address of the physician who should receive your records. I have included the necessary release form that can be found below. You may email the request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
