Dr. Wertheimer Has Closed his Office
I regret to announce that for a variety of reasons (none of them health) I have decided to close my office practice. The last date of appointments will be November 30, 2012. For ongoing care I am suggesting Boston Obstetrics and Gynecology LLC – a group practice at One Brookline Place, Suite 423, Brookline, MA 02445, 617-566-1535. They are associated with Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. Or you could ask your primary care physician for names of other gynecologists.
If you would like your medical record, please arrange a date to pick it up with my medical assistant Shelia before December 31, when we will be vacating suite 7-A at 1180 Beacon St. Contact her several days in advance by e-mail at email@example.com or call 617-734-7600. I strongly recommend you obtain your own records, rather than ask us to forward them to another provider. From experience we have learned that mailing and faxing to a third party can be quite unreliable, and you will also be able to make copies for providers you might have in the future.
After December 31, record requests should be sent to:
Austin Wertheimer, M.D.
P.O. Box 1101
Brookline, MA 02446
Also after December 31, the phone number will change to 617-730-9372. Expect to leave a message, and I or my assistant will return your call. My e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org will remain the same for the foreseeable future.
If you are in need of emergency gynecologic care before you have registered with another practice, you may go to the Emergency Room at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at 190 Pilgrim Rd., Boston, MA 02215, main hospital number 617-667-7000.
I am going to miss all of you who are, indeed, my friends as well as my patients. If any of you want to drop me an e-mail or a note from time to time, it would be great to hear from you. Thank you for many good years of rewarding caregving.
