Notice of Practice Closure

Dear Patients,

As you may or may not be aware, Dr. Thomas J. Smith has been in a very serious accident and will not be able to return to the practice of medicine.  Therefore, we regret to inform you, Dr. Smith's practice is closing.

Dr. Smith has enjoyed taking care of all his patients for these many decades and wishes each one of you well as you transition to new providers. 

Please find details below for collecting your medical records, lab results, and transitioning to a new provider.

Respectfully,

Dr. Tim Smith for Dr. Tom J. Smith


How can I obtain my medical records?

Medical Records are available for pick-up at the practice through 5/23/2018.  Please schedule a pick-up time by contacting Kelly at drtom@drtomseattle.com.  We are requesting all those who are able to  pick-up your records in person. 

If you are under case management by Lifelong your records are being provided directly to your Case Manager so they may assist you in transitioning to a new provider.

What if I am disabled or out of state and cannot physically be present to pick-up my records?

If you require your medical records to be mailed to you because you are outside of the state and will not return prior to 5/23/18 or are disabled and unable to come to the office we can assist you, however, there will be a fee for postage and handling and must be prepaid by credit card prior to releasing your records.

How can I access my past lab results?

Your previous lab results are available at www.labcorp.com.  Please visit their website and log-in to access your lab records.  Please do not contact the office for technical assistance.  If you are unable to log-in you need to contact Lab Corp directly.

How do I find a new provider?

Because Dr. Smith's practice is closing you need to transition your care to a new provider.  We encourage you to immediately reach out to your insurance carrier for a list of providers that are in your network.  You may also want to research providers at UW Medicine or Swedish Physicians.  Please do not contact the office for a referral to a new provider.  We will not be able to assist you.

For those patients that live in Washington State and are HIV positive you may want to reach out to www.lifelong.org for assistance. 

How can I send cards and letters to Dr. Smith as he recovers?

If you would like to send cards or well wishes to Dr. Tom please mail them directly to his office through the end of  May.  The practice location will be closed and we will no longer have access to the building as of 5/31/18.
