An Open Letter to All Dr. Liu's Patients:
This letter is to inform you that I will retire at the end of year 2021. It has been a great privilege of mine to have your confidence and to be able to take care of you for all these years. For any medical care to be effective, it takes a team effort, and you have been a great teammate.
You have taught me more than you probably realized: the way you handle adversity, your insights into issues, your resilience and resourcefulness. So, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge to you my debt and thank you. You have made me a better physician than I could ever be by myself.
Dr. Natasha Kasid will join our practice by January 2022, in order to ensure the continuity of your medical care. She hails from Joslin Diabetes Center in Needham, MA and was an instructor endocrinologist at the Harvard Medical School. I have full confidence in her competence and dedication as a physician.
Please take care, and carry on. With many fond thoughts and wishing you the best.
Linda Liu, MD
