To my patients:
After 19 years of practicing medicine at Gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont (formerly Piedmont Gastroenterology Specialists), I have made a life decision to pursue a new career in the clinical research industry. My new role is primarily remote and will give me the opportunity to spend significantly more time with my family – something I value greatly. Given this, after much consideration, my last day at GAP will be December 31st, 2021.
I have enjoyed the years of service to my patients and want to sincerely thank you for entrusting me with your medical care.
Please know that it is very important that you continue any recommendations you received while under my care. I have the utmost confidence and respect for my colleagues at GAP, and encourage you to continue care with one of the practice’s competent physicians. It brings me comfort to know that you will be in good hands.
If you prefer to transfer your care to a GI provider outside of GAP, please call our medical records department at your convenience. Upon proper authorization, your records will be sent to the physician of your choice. If you choose to stay with GAP, no authorization is necessary.
It has been a pleasure and privilege to treat you during the course of my practice. I will miss the relationships that I have established over the years, and wish you and your family good health and happiness.
Please do not hesitate to call GAP at (336) 448-2427 for assistance during this transition.
Sincerely,Sean M. Harris, MD
