To my patients:
I want to thank you for your business and tell you how much I have enjoyed having you as a patient. It is with mixed emotions that I inform you of a change in my career. I have accepted a position with HealthPartners. On September 1, 2016, my practice will move to Saint Paul, Minnesota, where I will be working at the HealthPartners Multispecialty Clinic and Regions Hospital.
This has been a very difficult decision, but one that is founded in my desires to forego the business responsibilities of my practice, allowing me to focus on patient care. Over the last several years, there has been a growing demand of my time and energy to focus on the non-clinical aspects of running a private practice business. My true love is caring for patients and the clinical work that I do. With this transition, I will be able to focus my energy on taking care of patients. At HealthPartners, I will continue to provide the same breath of clinical procedures that I have done in the past. I am also excited for the opportunities that I will have to expand my clinical practice.
While I am moving my practice to Saint Paul, I will still be available to provide care for all of you. I am impressed with the clinical mission of HealthPartners and I know I will be able to provide you with the same informed and individualized care I have been able to provide though Witzke Plastic Surgery. Over the next several weeks, we will work with you to provide you with a smooth transition of your care and to assist you in scheduling your appointments to see me in Saint Paul. I understand that for some of you, there may be geographical constraints limiting your ability to follow me to Saint Paul. For those patients, we will do everything we can to provide you with a plastic surgeon in Minneapolis who will be able to continue to provide your care.
This has been a very difficult decision for me, both professionally and personally. However, I am energized by the prospects of expanding my clinical practice and being able to focus all of my energy and attention on my patients. Over the last nine years, it has been an honor to provide your care and be a part of your lives. I have never taken the honor you have given me to assist with your care for granted. I am humbled to have worked with the fantastic staff in my office: Kim Starr, Lacy Kuhnau, and Mary Page. They have been inspirational to me and their dedication to providing my patients with the best possible care and creating the best clinical and surgical experience possible, has been unsurpassed.
