Dr. Allen’s Retirement Letter

Dear Patient,

It is with much gratitude towards you, my patient, that I write this letter to let you know I have made the decision to retire as of June 30, 2022. One of my life’s greatest blessings has been serving as your Urologist through the years and I am grateful for our time together. Thank you for being my patient.

I have a close relationship with Dr. John Blankenship, covering our hospitals and personal practices for approximately 5 years. I cannot think of anyone that you could obtain better care and
thoughtful guidance from than Dr. Blankenship. He is a kind and thoughtful person and an exceptional urological surgeon. Dr. Blankenship’s practice is “Urology Group of Athens”, and its
main location is 195 King Ave, Athens, Ga 30606. You can reach his office at (706) 543-6261 to schedule appointments in his Athens or Royston locations. More information can be found at his
website www.urologygroupofathens.com

Moving forward, we are preparing and working diligently to help you transition your care to another physician. Your medical care has always been and will continue to be our primary focus over the next month. To obtain a copy or request transfer of your medical records during this transition please call my office at (706) 543-2718, select option 2 to speak with a receptionist or
leave a message before June 30, 2022. 1 have asked for Dr. Blankenship to be custodian (manager) of your medical records thereafter. Beginning July 1, 2022, if you need assistance with your
medical record, please contact his office at (706) 543-6261. You will need to follow his office’s policy to formally become part of his practice or to transfer to another physician of your choice.

It has been a privilege to know you both professional and personally. I wish you the best in the years to come.
