First and foremost, I hope you and your family have been fortunate to stay healthy during this
recent crisis. I am writing you this letter today to inform you that, after much soul searching, I
have decided to leave practicing with Bay West Endocrinology on July 16, 2020, and spend as
much time as possible with my children while they are still young.
What does this mean for you as my patient? I will continue to see any scheduled patients until
July 16, 2020. I will continue to provide any necessary medical care for you, as usual until that
date. If you have an appointment after this date, you will be rescheduled by our office with either
our nurse practitioner, or one of our physician assistants, and assigned to the care of one of my
physician partners, for whom I have the utmost esteem and regard, in terms of their clinical
abilities as endocrinologists. If you have any questions or concerns about the transition, please do
not hesitate to call.
Lastly, please know that I have truly enjoyed being your doctor. You have been a special part of
my professional life. It has been a tremendous privilege and honor to have taken care of you. I
hope you all the best in the future.
Francis Y.G. Lee, M.D.
