NOTICE: Due to retirement, Dr. Ross is no longer accepting new patients. We regret any inconvenience.
I am writing to let you know of my plan to retire from private practice. The effective date is scheduled to be on JANUARY 31, 2017.
It is important that you make arrangements to continue to receive quality medical care. If you need assistance in locating another podiatrist, I would like to suggest that you contact your current health plan or the Massachusetts Podiatric Medical Society customer service line. The customer service line is 978-256-0935 and may be reached Monday thru Friday from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM.
I have contacted Dr. Albert Bravo, 800 North Street, Pittsfield @ 413-448-3668, Dr. Stephen Quinn, 455 South Street @ 413-499-4461 or Dr. Karen Dobe-Costa, 197 Adams Road, Williamstown, MA @ 413-458-8182. You may also wish to speak to your primary care physician if you have any questions regarding your health and associated foot care. You may also wish to contact Berkshire Medical Center for referrals.
For those who may have difficulty in accessing either office you may wish to contact Elder Services @ 413-499-0524 for names of nurses who may be able to provide foot care.
Once you have a new physician, he/she will need copies of your medical record in order to treat you. I cannot release copies of your records unless I have your signed authorization, so I have enclosed an authorization form for you to sign. Please fill it out and send it to me or you may wish to stop by the office prior to January 31, 2017 and obtain this information personally. After January 31, 2017, I may be reached at 413-499-9269. If no one is able to answer, kindly speak slowly and distinctly with your message and I shall contact you to arrange for records to be forwarded.
I would like to thank you for the many years of continued confidence in allowing me the opportunity to provide podiatric care to you and your family. Retiring is never easy but after 45 years the time is now appropriate for a change. I extend my best wishes to you for your future health care.
