To my dearest patients and families,

I am writing this letter to let you know that I have retired from private practice of plastic surgery and hand surgery as of June 1, 2021.  I continued to provide an answering service for my office phone until 12/31/2021, but after that date you will find that the phone has been discontinued and will not be answered.

If your care is continuing it will need to be transitioned to other physicians. I am happy to help facilitate the transition by providing your medical records at your request.  Please email me at and I will provide your medical records as expeditiously as possible.  You may also mail your request to:

Richard K. Vanik, M.D., J.D., F.A.C.S. 

P.O. Box 6079

I very much appreciate your placing your care in my trust.  I will miss all of you, even as I look forward to spending much more time with my wife, children and grandchildren.  I wish you all the very best.

With deep personal gratitude,

Richard K. Vanik, M.D, J.D., F.A.C.S.
