A message from Dr. Mead

October 14, 2015

Dear Patients:

dr_meadThe purpose of this letter is to let you know of my plans to close my medical practice effective immediately. I have taken an extended medical leave of absence, and cannot be certain of my date of return to practicing medicine.

I enjoyed my years of service to my patients and my community. Thank you for entrusting me with your medical care.

You will need to make arrangements to find another physician to provide your medical care. You may find another physician from the community by contacting your health insurance company or consulting with your primary care provider.

If you were referred by a physician to this office, they will have been sent a record of your treatment.

Your medical records cannot be released without your consent. Should you require a copy of your medical records, you may request it by downloading and submitting the Authorization of Medical Release one of two ways:

  1. By regular mail:
    Grand Rapids Hand, PLC
    4215 Michigan St NE
    Grand Rapids, MI  49525
  2. By email to:
    (please remove the asterisks and all letters between; this is to prevent spambot harvesting).

It has been my pleasure and privilege to treat you during the course of my practice. I wish you and your family well.



Marilee J. Mead, MD
