To my patients and friends:
 
It has been a great pleasure to serve as your physician the past 19 years.

I will be retiring from Family Medicine effective April 26, 2018. I will be available for medical appointments through April 26th.

Dr Joseph Sheppard, an excellent DPC physician in Neosho, has agreed to include our members in his practice. His contact information is:
Joseph Sheppard, DO
Free Market Physician
317 S. Wood St.
Neosho, MO 64850
417-283-4953
 
Diane Rowe, NP will be taking over the New Direction weight loss program.
If you have paid an annual membership and do not wish your records transferred to Dr. Sheppard, you will be refunded unused months. Contact the office to start the refund process.

Non-member patients are welcome to contact Dr. Sheppard and Ms. Rowe to discuss membership options. Alternatively, contact your insurance provider or your hospital of choice for a referral to a new primary care provider.
 
Please let us know if you would like to transfer your membership and medical records to him.
If you prefer we send your records directly to you, reply to this email or notify the office. After May 1, 2018 records requests will be fulfilled by Dr. Sheppard's office. Requests will be filled as per time limitations dictated by state law retention requirements.
Thank you for the trust and friendships you have extended to me and my staff.
 
Sincerely,
 
Cynthia D. Croy, MD
