It will be strange for us to come to work in 2020 knowing that Dr. Strong will no longer regularly be with us in the office as he has announced his retirement for 12/31/19 after nearly 25 years with Pediatric Associates. He has been a valued colleague and friend and has provided quality pediatric care to families in the Abilene area for years. If your child is cared for primarily by Dr. Strong, know that we remain committed to continuing to provide quality pediatric care for your family. See below for his official retirement letter:
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from active practice, effective December 31, 2019. It has been a great pleasure and honor providing for your child(ren’s) health care needs for the last 38 years, and it is not easy for me to give it up.
As you all know, this practice is staffed with the most knowledgeable and caring physicians anywhere. I highly recommend that you select one of these physicians for your child(ren’s) future medical needs.
Your medical records are confidential and will remain on file with Pediatric Associates. If you choose another physician within our organization, you do not need to take any ation concerning your child’s records. If you choose a physician outside of our clinic, you will need to sign an authorization form before we can release your medical records. By law, we cannot share your medical information without your written consent.
Again, I will forever cherish the relationships I have established with your family. I sincerely appreciate your trust and loyalty. I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.
Jimmy L. Strong, M.D.
