The following is a letter from Dr. Shill to his patients.
This letter is to inform you that I will be leaving The Gastroenterology Group and moving out of state to be closer to family and friends.
My last day in the office will be December 4, 2020. As I’m sure you are aware, I leave three highly reputable colleagues who will be available to continue your gastroenterology care. Please rest assured and feel confident to continue your care with the remaining physicians of the group.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
It has been my privilege to participate in providing your care and I wish you good health, happiness and prosperity.
With warm regards,
