Dear Carolina ENT patients,
We wanted to inform you of two upcoming changes for Carolina ENT Associates.
On August 31, 2015, Dr. Kim Richard Jones is retiring after a long and distinguished career in medicine, and we wish him the best. The physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and staff at Carolina ENT will continue to provide the same quality health care you received from Dr. Jones. Dr. Kathy Yu will remain at the practice and we will be hiring a new physician shortly. If you wish to remain a patient of this practice, you do not have to do anything.
If, however, you would prefer to seek medical care elsewhere, you are free to do so. You may pick up a copy of your medical records at our office or you may ask us to transfer them directly to another office. For either of these options, we will need a signed authorization to transfer records. You may find this form on our website at www.chapelhillent.com under the Appointments Section. You may return the form to our office in person or by mail. Please be advised that you may be charged for records that are greater than 25 pages at a rate of $0.05/page.
The second exciting change is that Carolina ENT will be merging with North Carolina Eye Ear Nose Throat, effective October 1, 2015. NCEENT is a well-established multi-specialty practice based in Durham and we are excited to become their Chapel Hill office. Our office location, hours, and staff will remain the same but the name of the practice will change.
Please call us if you have any questions about your current or future treatment.
Carolina ENT Associates
Dr. Kim Richard Jones and Dr. Kathy Yu
