A Heartfelt Farewell & Gratitude from Dr. Vital

Dear Valued Patient:

With a mixture of emotions, I write to you to share some news.  After many fulfilling years of practice and having the privilege of caring for your eye health, I am announcing my retirement from active practice.  While this decision comes sooner than anticipated, it is one that I make with a heart full of gratitude and a deep sense of fulfillment.

I want to express my sincerest thanks to each and every one of you for entrusting me with your eye care needs over the years.  It has been an honor to be a part of your lives, and I am profoundly grateful for the trust you placed in me.  Your smiles, stories, and shared moments have enriched my life in ways that I cannot adequately express.  I hope I have been able to help you with your eye care needs with the focus and compassion that you deserve.

Regrettably, unforeseen personal health matters have necessitated this sudden departure from practice. However, I want to reassure you that I am safe and content.  While I will miss our interactions dearly, I take comfort in knowing that your will continue to receive exceptional care from the talented and dedicated doctors of Houston Eye Associates.  Please reach out to my staff at (713) 668-6828, ext. 2395 for any questions and to discuss your future care.

As I reflect on my career, I am filled with immense pride in the relationships we’ve built and the positive impact we’ve made together.  Your commitment to prioritizing your eye health has been inspiring, and I encourage you to continue this journey with the same dedication and enthusiasm.

Your medical records will be maintained by Houston Eye Associates.  They will be kept confidential and available to the Houston Eye physicians.  If you have any questions or need access to your records, please contact the Medical Records Department at (713) 668-6828.

In closing, I extend my heartfelt thanks once again for the privilege of being your ophthalmologist.  It has been an honor and a joy to serve you.  As I embark on this new chapter, please know that I carry each of you with me in my heart.  

Wishing you continued health, happiness, and bright futures ahead!

With warm regards and deepest gratitude,
