In case we missed you in the snail mail I am posting a copy of Dr. Kennedy's recent letter.
May 10, 2016
Dear Friends, Patients and Families,
After 40 years of medical practice it is time for me to retire. Making this decision has been difficult for me, but it is the right thing to do. It has been a pleasure serving you all over the last 11 years. The timing of my departure will be about a year from now.
We will be looking for someone to take my place, but great family doctors are few and far between. Fortunately, Byers Peak will be in Kelley’s capable hands and she will carry on. Our mission has been to be a patient centered practice that allows ample time to care for everyone who enters our doors. I think we have mostly done this, and this will not change. In anticipation of not finding the right provider fit, we will be scaling back the practice. I am not accepting any new patients. We will not be able to accept any new Medicare or Medicaid patients, but will continue to accept new families. If you are a current patient and are expecting to be a Medicare patient soon, we will happily see you as well. We will continue to keep you updated as we move through the transition.
Lindy and I will not be leaving the county, and we look forward to seeing all of you around. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
