NOTICE OF RETIREMENT
Dr. Alicia D. Zalka
It is with truly mixed emotions I write to inform you of my plans to retire from practice on December 31st 2022.
This is a thank-you letter.
Thank you for taking care of your skin, your health, for referring friends and family to our practice, and for your trust in me and Dermatology Associates of Western Connecticut, for all these years.
Saying goodbye to you is so difficult, and this conclusion did not happen capriciously. After deep consideration, I have decided it is time to pivot. Veering off the carefully directed path I have been following, of career and commitment to the practice of dermatology, I will now see where life takes me. I will rebalance my life and dedicate myself to some of my passions that have taken a back seat to dermatology for many years.
It has been nearly 27 years that I have been privileged to provide you and your neighbors with dermatologic care. And from my very first day in 1995 at DAWC, I have been greatly fulfilled working with you, and getting to know your families and serving our community.
Please remember to protect and care for your skin, and continue to do skin checks both in your own home/ self-checks and get yearly skin exams at Dermatology Associates. We now have six healthcare providers and four offices, including a new state of the art office in Newtown. These substantial additions in dermatologic services are all supported by a qualified and professional clinical, business and administrative staff. I recommend that you continue your care with any of the highly competent providers here at Dermatology Associates. Your records will be filed with us indefinitely. If you should consider transferring your care elsewhere, then we will efficiently send your records as requested.
Please call the office at your earliest convenience to make your final appointments with me and to discuss your seamless transition to one of our other highly qualified providers.
In closing, I will be thinking of you, as I do not have plans to leave CT, I hope we run into each other.
Alicia Zalka, M.D.
