August 1, 2018 Announcement

August 1. 2018

Dear Patients,

My staff and I have been honored to serve the Wilson community for nearly 14 years at our present location. However, to meet the growing challenges of medicine, as of October 10, 2018, I will be closing my own private medical practice.

Beginning in November, I will be joining the new Vidant Healthplex-Wilson currently being built over on Raleigh Road here in Wilson.   After much contemplation, I feel that this transition will be better both for me and for my patients with increased support, more resources, and expanded services. I attended medical school in Greenville and completed my family medicine residency there so I am very confident in Vidant’s mission to improve the health and well-being of eastern North Carolina.

Your privacy is important to us, so please note that your medical records will not be transferred anywhere without a signed medical record release authorization.  If you wish to continue your care with me, you must still fill out a medical record release form and return it to our office..

If you are a current patient seen recently, you should receive one in the mail soon.  If you do not, call us at 252-234-1704 and we will send you one immediately.   Just fill in “Vidant” on the form, sign and return to us and we will make sure that your records are transferred and your care will continue as usual over at the new Vidant Healthplex-Wilson.  Any appointments with me currently booked at my office after October 10th can be transferred over to Vidant along with your records.

If you wish to transfer your care to another physician, indicate where you want your records sent on the authorization form and return to us as soon as possible, or have them fax us their own medical record release form before October 1, 2018.  Our fax number is 252-234-0404.

In either case, please make sure to sign and date the form completely and return it to our office as soon as possible.  If you have left old medical records at my office from other previous providers, you may pick them up at any time.  All medical records must be picked up or transferred by October 1, 2018.  All records not picked up will eventually be destroyed.  It has been a wonderful experience to run my own practice but I look forward to joining a new and growing group and still remaining here in Wilson. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call.

Yours very truly,

Tonya S. Little, MD
