It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to let you know that I will be leaving my clinical, research and education staff positions at Joslin Diabetes Center. I will be taking on a new position in California to pursue the next phase of my professional development. This has been a very difficult decision for me. However, I'd like to thank you for letting me be a part of your health care team. I know that I will leave your diabetes care in the hands of a trusted and capable team at Joslin. My last day in the clinic will be August 29th, 2019.
If you do not already have an appointment scheduled for follow-up care with your new provider, please call the Asian Clinic (617) 309-3444 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
If you do choose to seek your diabetic care outside the Diabetes Center, Joslin will provide your new healthcare provider with your medical information upon your request and written authorization.
