Many have asked when I would retire . My answer was always ‘years away’, if not  “never”. The pandemic has forced that time to be now .
I am grateful to Arlene Harms and the Rio Grande Hospital system for giving me additional time with patients and to reconnect with friends.
May 2020, marks 51 years as a physician. That will have to be enough to repay my country for educating me and providing a profession that I have loved.
I will remain available to assist in whatever way possible. I just will not have clinic appointments.
To help with the transition, you may call the South Fork Clinic at 719-873-5494.
