Dear Much Loved Patients:
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing the closure of my practice, effective January 31, 2018. It has been a great pleasure providing for your health care needs over the years, and it is not easy for me to give up my work, but unfortunately I suffered a stroke in early December am in currently in a rehabilitation facility and cannot actively practice at this time. I am cognitively intact but have left sided weakness.
As of February 1, 2018, Dr. Rudy Tovar’s Group will be taking over my practice. I am pleased that you have the opportunity to have him or his colleagues as your physician. Dr. Tovar is a native Texan and is a well trained graduate of the University of Texas Medical Branch. He has been taking care of women with their gynecological and obstetrical needs since 1977. He also helped found North Texas Ob-Gyn Associates in 1980. You will be in good hands and I trust him to care for you while I am in recovery. He has a larger group and since they are located right down the street this may be the easiest transition. Of course, you may seek medical care from another doctor if you prefer. If you choose to do so, I recommend looking for a new physician as soon as possible. If you need help with this please feel free to call my staff.
Cheryl Smitherman is still seeing patients until the end of the month at our same clinic at 3051 Churchill Dr #220 in Flower Mound until 1/31/18 and then will be at North Texas Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates starting 2/1/18. We have negotiated a smooth transfer of care to this office for those of you who would like to do so. The address is below:
North Texas Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates
3424 Long Prairie Rd, Suite 200
Flower Mound, TX 75022
Tel: (972) 436-7557
Your medical records remain confidential, and a copy can be transferred to another doctor or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. If you plan to continue with transferring care to North Texas Ob-Gyn Associates, you can sign an authorization form to release your records on your next visit. If you choose to see a different physician, please sign the enclosed authorization form and return it to my office as soon as possible so we may transfer your records to your new doctor. Until then, your records will remain on file at my former office until February 28th and then will be located at North Texas Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates.
You can also download release of records form on the main page of our website and fax the request to 214-513-2244. You may pick up your medical records at 3051 Churchill Dr. until February 15,2018 after that date you may request your records from North Texas OB. (You will need to bring a photo ID and you will be asked to sign a consent.) I do apologize for any inconvenience this had brought, and am working hard in rehabilitation to be available again in the future. I am getting stronger every day thanks to the love and support of you all, my staff, and my family.
If you’d like to send me mail, you may send it to: 4608 Oak Springs Dr., Flower Mound TX 75028. Please do continue your prayers for my recovery as this does help. Thank you so much and I am so hopeful to be able to see you again soon.
