It’s with a heavy heart, I write this letter. I have had the privilege of providing medical care to you, for some 30 plus years! We have travelled many roads together, we have laughed, we have cried and I am grateful and honoured to have been your doctor.
Over the years we have gotten to know each other and our families, (you know I can talk a little too much and too long and I will miss these interactions). It is with much consideration that at this juncture in my life I have made the decision to readjust my time commitment. Thus, moving forward, I have decided to provide only consultative occupational medical services. This provides me the opportunity to spend more time with my family, (whether they like it or not).
I have actively searched and advertised to find a replacement for the last 6 months, but unfortunately, have not found a doctor to assume care for my practice. As such you will need to find another family doctor. I realize this is not an easy task. Here are some resources available for finding family doctors:
My last day of Family Practice will be OCT.31st. I have made provisions to handle any outstanding medical tests and referrals and to ensure prescriptions will be renewed through until December 01.2022
Your medical records will remain with River Medical Centre, but can be transferred to your new family doctor upon request. This request must be facilitated through your new family doctor. If you want a copy of your medical record, please sign the attached consent and return it to the office. Upon receipt of your signed consent, the office will forward you your medical record. There is an administrative fee for record transferal.
It has been my pleasure, honour and joy to have been your family doctor. I wish each of you health, happiness and laughter in the years ahead.
Dr. Todd Walters
