Dr. James Long Retirement Letter

October 1, 2021

Dear Patients,
It is with a mix of sadness, nostalgia, and some trepidation that I am announcing my retirement from active medical practice as of January 1, 2022. It has been a genuine honor and pleasure to have provided care for you and your families, and I will cherish the many friendships I have made in the process. Over the last near half century, I have seen many changes in the practice of medicine, and it was of the highest priority that my replacement be a caring, well-qualified, dedicated individual, and not a corporate-owned impersonal entity. Therefore, I am proud to announce that Nazia Malick, MD, will be assuming the leadership of Flower Mound Family Physicians as of January 1, 2022. Since July 2013 as a hospitalist at a local hospital, Dr. Malick has provided excellent care for many of my patients who required inpatient treatment. Dr. Malick is a Board Certified Family Physician who completed her medical degree at Dow Medical University of Health Sciences in 2003, her residency in Family Medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in 2010, and her fellowship at Stony Brook Geriatric Medicine in 2011. She also completed training in aesthetic medicine at the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine in 2017. With Dr. Malick’s vast experience in handling complex hospital cases, as well as her additional training in Geriatric Medicine, I feel comfortable that the practice is being left in excellent hands. I understand some of you may want to select a new provider outside of the practice. If you choose to do so, I recommend looking for a new physician as soon as possible. Your medical records are confidential, and a copy can be transferred to another doctor or released to you or a person you designate, only through your written permission. If you choose to continue with the practice, no action in needed on your part concerning your medical records. If you choose a physician or provider outside of the practice, please fill out the enclosed release of medical records and return it to the office as soon as possible so that we can transfer your records to your new provider. Until then, your medical records will remain on file at my former practice. I have greatly valued our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. Best wishes for your future health and all the best in coming years.

  Sincerely,
James R Long MD.
