To my dear patients,
It is with mixed emotions that I have decided to retire on September 1st, 2019. For 32 years, I have been invited into your lives and I have learned so much from each of you. As you shared your joys, frustrations, and fears, I have been truly privileged to have your trust. I treasure those times of connection.
Thank you for the honor of allowing me to be involved in your healthcare and for sharing a small part of your life with me. My last appointments will be on August 29, and after that I leave you in good hands at The Endocrine Center. There are nine Endocrinologists who are knowledgeable and caring to help you continue your healthy journeys. Please be patient with them, as you have been with me, for we all strive to do our very best to provide expert care of your endocrine health.
If you wish to see another doctor, please contact the office for information to transfer your records.
I wish you the very best. I will keep our relationship in my heart and memory forever.
Hope D. Shipman MD
