This letter is to inform you of some important updates and changes within our practice.
Dr. Melissa Hager has accepted a position with another practice and will be leaving Arthritis Consultants on September 4th, 2022. We wish her the best in her new venture.
Arthritis Consultants remains committed to providing you with the highest standards of care possible. We will try our best to reassign you to one of our other providers; however, this may not be possible for all patients. If needed, we will provide referrals and prescription refills for at least 90 days.
If you are not acquainted with another Rheumatologist, you can contact your primary care provider or your insurance carrier for the names of local Rheumatologists accepting new patients. We will make copies of your medical records available to the Rheumatologist you designate once a signed release form is received.
We are fortunate to have Dr. Richard Brasington, Jr., M.D. bring his wealth of experience to our practice. He will be joining us on a part-time basis.
If you have questions about this transition, please contact our office at 314-372-8214 or visit our website at www.arthritisconsultants.org for information. Our office staff will be able to assist you and answer any of your questions or concerns.
