He is in a new office in Rockwall!

He left that office but is still practicing in Rockwall, don't try to read into their, staff at S. Family Clinic. He is a great doctor, listen's, cares, also excellent on the knowledge, diagnosing, etc. Due to frequent moves prior to 7 years ago I have learned a lot about finding good doctors, with good staff, accepts my insurance, etc. Where he was working has joined up with a company that tends to handle the management side, is my understanding. Changes like that with offices with multiple doctors, and other health care providers, PA, RNP, RNs....tend to result in staffing changes. I have been thru it before, sometimes it works, but I have seen how bad it can get when it doesn't. They should have sent you a letter last spring. Said something about the management company, also gave address and phone number of Dr. W's new office. I got one, but I can't find it now. When a Doctor leaves an clinic practice (multiple doctors) the rules are tricky. Staff won't tell you why and last I saw this happen, the Doctor(s) who leave and go into their own office, or a group office, aren't allowed to reach out to the patients from the office they leave, at least for a contracted amount of time. If you choose to you can go to his new office, might have to sign something saying you called him not him contacting you. New patients won't have to, the other office doesn't want to loose his patients. They also instruct the employees to only say he doesn't work here anymore. One they don't want to risk an employee saying anything that is legally actionable, or could be perceived to be so. So they say he isn't working there anymore. Remain silent otherwise. They avoid potential law suits, don't freely offer his new office info. Which at least delays you leaving,and I am betting the hush hush also plants a seed of doubt, at least for some people.

I am at a loss here

Dr Witherspoon was my family doctor at the Sandknop practice. I was informed that he simply left the practice and they had no idea why. The front desk was rather distant and said they had many doctors who were taking his patients, Well, these other doctors dont know me.. Dr. Witherspoon has virtually saved my life and has helped me through the most serious of medical probems. Cancer. And I do not want another stranger going through my files and not knowing the person I am. He was my doctor and friend, I am seriously worried about him and cannot believe the unprofessional attitude of the office. I have a right to know where my doctor is and if he is still here practicing medicine. There are several others who feel the same way I do. I cannot get a straight answer and I need him.
