CFWH was acquired by Saint Mary’s Medical Group on June 1, 2015. I am currently on a medical leave of absense and I have no intention of ever working for Saint Mary’s. Cookie Bible, APN has taken a position with Elizabeth Hutson, MD @775-432-1343. I highly recommend their office.
A former patient kindly reached out to me and informed me that my website and former phone numbers have been disconnected without further notice. In the negotiations I was reassured that all of my patients would receive a letter explaining the situation with instructions to obtain copies of your charts and that the phones and faxes would be forwarded to the group to assist you. I feel obligated to update you here because as always, taking care of patients has been my primary concern for 28 years.
Your medical records are available at Women’s Health Center, 775-770-6940, 645 N. Arlington Suite 555, Reno, NV 89502. You will need to send or fax a signed records release to obtain copies of your records. It is probably easiest if you have your new physician request the records for you. If you need a prescription refill and can’t get a timely appointment then your family physician may give you an Rx until you find another gynecologist. I deeply regret the inconvenience to you and the frustrations for me during this acquisition.

On a personal note, I injured my hip in March and I am slowly recovering. I am taking a much needed sabbatical away from medicine and only time will tell if I will return to clinical practice. I miss you, my patients, every day and I wish you happiness and good health in the years ahead. I consider many of you friends after all these years together. I’m deeply grateful for everything that you gave back to me over the years. Feel free to follow my blog and I will post any updates as they become available.

That’s a sweet thing to say. I’m not saving any lives these days but thank you.
Thank you so much for posting this Tracey! I was so sad when I tried to reach your office to schedule an appointment with you and there was no forwarding information or help…just a message that the business was closed. So I hopped online and searched for some bit of information – then came upon your website! Even though it has been a couple of years since I saw you, my heart sank when I realized I would not be able to utilize your care any longer. You ALWAYS made me feel like I was a friend and I felt that you truly cared about me and my health! I could discuss anything with you in complete comfort, knowing that there would be no judgement or bias… I will miss you, but I am thrilled to be able to follow you on your blog & website. Heal deeply my friend. Enjoy the time and space to nourish your body and feed your soul.
Thank you so much Jan. I do miss my time with patients but I am well and happy. Saint Mary’s, ugh. They totally dropped the ball so I’m glad you found me. My personal MD is Elizabeth Hutson but I don’t know if she’s taking new patients. I don’t know any of the “new young” women gynecologist but I’m sure there are some great ones. My newest blog is at http://www.mybajakitchen.com where I write about my life in Baja and cooking. I have to keep my brain busy even as my body fails me.
All the best to you,
