Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are ready for a beautiful new year ahead! I was out of the country for 3 weeks and just returned this week, so I apologize for any delays in correspondence. Firstly, I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support, words of encouragement and faith in me. I never imagined that so many of you would reach out. You all reflect the truest gift of medicine–the love and respect of your patients. It is a gift I treasure and hold closely to my heart.

I have tried to personally call or email back as many of you as possible, but if I have missed anyone, please reach out again! I know many of you have struggled with getting medication refills and have requested that I do so. Please know that if I could, I would. I am not able to do so until I establish a practice. I understand that there have been many changes at my previous office, and this can contribute to delays in getting refills.

The most important and urgent question on your minds is when my new practice will open. Please know that your healthcare is critically important to me, but starting a new practice in the current economy takes time—a lot of time. Medicine has changed tremendously in the past few decades, and there are many more changes ahead in the immediate future due to The Affordable Healthcare Act. This greatly influences the way in which I can practice medicine on my own. I need to take the time to establish a practice that will be successful, so that I can provide the quality of care you deserve. Therefore, I cannot say when my my practice will open for sure. I do not want any of you to suffer a lapse in your care as it could take me many months.

I wish I could recommend another physician in the interim, but this depends on your individual insurance coverage and whether a good doctor is taking new patients, etc.

If insurance is not a concern, a few excellent doctors I know are: Dr.Sheril Stansberry, Dr.Ivan Castro and Dr.William House. They all have independent offices in Winter Park and practice VIP medicine. To see them, you must pay a retainer up front. Unfortunately, that is what is seems to take for a good internist to succeed in private practice on his or her own. Sad but true.

While I contemplate my future practice, I am enjoying long overdue quality time with my children and husband. You must know how deeply I care for all of you and I am sorry for how the the rug was pulled out from under your feet. This was not the outcome I would have chosen.

I will continue to post periodic updates as to my progress and wish you well until we meet again. Again, it pains me greatly that I cannot provide medication refills and dispense medical advice until I am back in practice. Wishing you all a peaceful and productive 2013!

Kindest regards,

Neha Doshi, MD

    Dear Dr. Doshi, I appreciate the update and wish you success in your future practice. If there is anything that I can do to help you through this process, please do not hesitate to call. As my physical condition requires primary care, I will go to a different physician. When you are ready, please advise.

    I’m 54 and you provided the best care I’ve received in my life. I am so sad to hear the way things were handled, and I hope you will find a way to continue your practicein the way you see fit.

    Dr. Doshi, Thank you for you kind call of sympathy on the loss of mother. It was so good to talk to you about her and going forward with the future.
