It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Dr. Claudia Taubman. She is retiring from medical practice as of December 31, 2016.
Dr. Taubman’s work as a doctor has left the world a better place. She has treated her patients with dignity and respect, and the way she has helped so many people is admirable. She has earned the respect of her peers and the admiration of her patients.
Please join us in extending best wishes to Dr. Taubman as she begins a new chapter in her life. We wish her only the best in retirement and that each day may bring new experiences and much happiness. Thank you, Dr. Taubman.
From Dr. Taubman to her patients:
I have always believed we should take stock of our time on this earth and periodically evaluate where we have been and where we are going. At the age of 67, I feel it right to proceed with the next phase.
Unfortunately, the rules and regulations have become progressively more intrusive in how I like to practice medicine. We were once physicians. Then we were identified as providers. Now, many days, I feel we are data entry personnel.
I have tried hard to not let those impediments interfere with what I have truly loved, caring – truly caring for you. I hope my respect for each of you has come through. You are what has kept me going. The fact that you shared your private lives, both the fears and the happiness, is something I will continue to treasure.
There are many skilled doctors at Advantia Health who will be able to take over your care, and I'm confident you will find a physician you will be comfortable with. If you plan to see a doctor in a different practice, your confidential medical records can be transferred after you sign an authorization.
The Hippocratic Oath states "May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help." I hope, in your view, I have fulfilled my oath.
With fondness and sincerity,
Claudia Taubman, MD, FACOG
