May 28, 2021
I would like to begin this letter by expressing my gratitude to each of my patients and their families for allowing me to provide your allergy and asthma care over the years. I started my practice, the Allergy & Asthma Care Center, here in Monroeville, thirty three years ago with my goal being to provide the best treatment, care and education to my patients and their families. Over the years, providing these services has been my privilege.
It is with mixed emotions that I am writing today to let you know that, after 33 years of practice, I will be retiring so that I may spend time with my family and focus on other personal interests. My retirement will be effective July 30, 2021. I will be available in the office until that date for your ongoing allergy and asthma care.
It is important that you continue your treatment plan to control your allergies and asthma. In order to provide that continuity I’m leaving my practice in the care of Dr. Kumar Patel, M.D.
Dr. Patel grew up locally in Plum and attended Plum High School. He did his undergraduate work at The University of Pittsburgh and went to medical school at University of Illinois, College of Medicine. He did an Internal Medicine Residency at University of Illinois, Lutheran General Hospital and completed his Allergy / Immunology Fellowship at New Jersey Medical School. He is board certified in Internal medicine and Allergy and Immunology.
Please rest assured that my services will remain available to you until July 30, 2021 to make this transition as smooth as possible. After that date Dr. Patel will be available for your continued care in my current location in addition to his other office locations.
I wish to thank you for your loyalty and wish you and your family the best of health and happiness in the future.
With much gratitude,
Barry Asman, M.D.
