Dr Gary Brewton is retiring and is closing the office permanently on March 19, 2020
February 14, 2020
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
I have practiced medicine since 1981. I have given the profession of medicine my all. I have cared first for people living and dying with HIV and AIDS, from the earliest days of the epidemic until now; and second, for the wellness and primary adult care of people in my local communities in Montrose and in Houston.
My recent successful surgery for prostate cancer has reminded me that life is precious and this mortal life is finite. Now I must redirect my efforts to better care for myself.
For this reason, I am closing my office at 1213 Hermann Drive, Suite 845, Houston, Texas, 77004, effective March 19, 2020. My last day to see patients in the office is March 12, 2020.
Consequently, you will need to find a new primary care physician. I recommend you check with your insurance company for the names of physicians or clinics where you can receive care. I am unable to give you any specific names.
Please note that after March 19, 2020, I will no longer be available to you for any aspect of your continued medical care. This would include direct care requiring my presence, telephone consultation, or issuance or renewal of any medications previously prescribed by me.
Your medical records are confidential, and a copy can be transferred to another doctor or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. Please sign the authorization form available by clicking here and return it to my office by FAX to 713-529-9311 or by mail to Gary Brewton MD, PO Box 541565, Houston TX 77254-1565.
I shall miss working with my office manager Stephanie Kimble. Her patience, professionalism, and concern for you have made my work possible. No doubt you will miss her too.
I am grateful for the trust you have shown me. I have valued our relationship greatly. Thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years.
Best wishes and blessings for your future health.
Gary Brewton, MD
