to: my patients and friends
This is a time that always seemed so far away in the future, but it has arrived, it seems, very quickly. I am announcing that I plan to retire from my medical practice on December 31, 2017. The past thirty-four years that you have allowed me to share in your healthcare and in the joys of bringing new life into your families has been a source of great happiness and satisfaction for me. My family has been most gracious in allowing me the time away from home to fulfill my dream and mission in life. Although I will miss my contact with many of you, it is time for me to pay back my family with more time for them. I can make this transition knowing that I leave each of you in good hands with the other physicians and the staff at Page, Hudson & Taylor, Gynecology at St. Vincent's.
I want to thank each of you and your families for letting me share the many joys, and also a few of the heartaches over the years. I will always cherish these memories as I go onto making new memories with my wonderful wife, Carolyn, our five children, Bill, Jennifer, Margaret, Rebecca and Tim along with their families. Your loyalty through the years has made many of you almost like family to me, and I hope that through email, social media and other avenues, that you will let me know how you and yours are doing.
This past year was not an easy one for me. Most of you know that I had two separate injuries that each required extensive surgery and a prolonged recovery time. I think that this was the sign that it was time for me to make this move in my life. I want to leave while I am still on top of my game and not be like the quarterback that should have retired last season.
Please know that your medical records and all of your information is safely on file at our office, and I hope that you will continue your medical care at Page, Hudson & Taylor, either through our physicians or nurse practitioner. They will have access to all of your information immediately. You can make your appointment by calling (205) 939-2806 or email email@example.com. Appointments may be made with Frank Page, M.D., Brenda Taylor, M.D. and Shereka Lewis, C.N.P. Each of them will do a marvelous job in continuing your healthcare in my absence.
Charles Hudson, M.D.
