April 25, 2021
It is with mixed emotion that I write to you today to announce my retirement from the practice of medicine after 30 years of commitment to patient care. It has been my pleasure to serve our community and to be a collaborative part of your health care. I have had the privilege of meeting so many amazing people over the course of my career and have developed lifelong friendships.
After the transition of my private practice to new owners, the subsequent retirement of my business partner, Darla Smedley, and the urgent calling to care for family members in need, I feel that now is the time for me to focus on the next phase of my life’s journey.
Over the past three decades, I have watched many families grow and have shared in the heartache and joy of healthcare. The steadfast loyalty and trust placed in me as your provider has been humbling and fulfilling. It was an honor to care for each and every one of you, and I will cherish the memories of all that I have experienced in my career.
My last day of patient care will be June 25, 2021. Please know that you are welcome to continue gynecology care at Advanced Women’s Health, and your medical records remain confidentially on file.
I wish you good health, peace and happiness.
Michelle Dosa, ARNP
