RE: Notice of Dr. Kay Departure and Practice Closure
We are writing this letter to inform you that Dr. Nwakaego Inyamah-Osijo (Dr. Kay) will be leaving P.L. Physicians and will no longer be able to serve as your child's primary care pediatrician. P.L. Physicians has also made the difficult decision to close its practice after providing medical care for over 15 years. The last day that we will see patients will be June 1, 2023. Should you wish for your child to be seen by Dr. Kay prior to June 1st, please contact our practice at (540)361-1800 to schedule a final appointment. We will continue to provide medical care for your child prior to this closing date.
Dr. Pamela Mancini's practice of PL Pediatrics, PLLC (located in the same clinic space of P.L. Physicians) is not affected by this closing and she will continue to see patients in her practice. Should you wish to transfer your child's medical care to Dr. Mancini, please contact the practice. Should you need assistance in locating different primary care services for your child we recommend contacting Mary Washington Healthcare at (540) 741-1404 or the Virginia Department of Health Professions at (804) 367-4400.
Once the office is closed, your child's medical records will continue to remain available until August 1, 2023. To obtain a copy of your child's medical records or have the medical records transferred to another pediatrician, federal and state regulations require an authorization for release of information form to be completed, signed and returned to the practice. There is an administration fee of $10.00 for copying and/or transferring each medical record copy unless you are transferring your child's care to the practice of Dr. Mancini.
You may return the completed authorization form to PL Physicians, 4550 Empire Court, Fredericksburg, VA 22408 prior to July 15, 2023. Assisting with your child's healthcare needs has been a privilege and we wish your child and your family the best of health.
