Dear Parents, Grandparents and Caregivers,

I appreciate the trust you have shown in allowing me to provide for your child’s medical needs over the last 13 years.

With great sadness, I am writing to announce the closure of my medical practice. I am discontinuing after many years of practicing pediatrics due to medical conditions I am experiencing which are preventing me from doing what I love the most. My practice will close for patient appointments on 10/04/2019.

No medical services may be provided after that date. I recommend that you arrange for care with another physician. You may want to contact the county medical society, a local hospital or your health care plan for a referral. I am also attaching a list of local pediatricians that you can contact.

Should you want another physician to have a copy of your medical records, please fill out the medical release authorization form and return it to my office no later than 10/04/2019. Please allow 24 hours for my staff to get your records ready for pick up.

After this date, all requests for medical records should be sent to 619 W. FM 544 Suite 1B Murphy TX 75094 and/or [email protected] After practice closure please allow 2-4 weeks for us to process your requests due to the high volume.

If you need medical care prior to the closure of my practice listed above, please do not hesitate to contact my office or the Emergency Department at Medical City, Plano at 972-596-6800.

It is my desire that the practice closure be as easy on you as possible. Once again, I am grateful for the opportunity to have been your physician.

Very truly yours,

Deepika Minnal, M.D.
