Dear Patients:

I want to inform you I will be leaving my practices located at 13460 S. Archer Avenue, next to Target Optical, Lemont, and 1111 Brook Forest Avenue, next to Target Optical, Shorewood, effective 6/19/21. My associates, Dr. Lanae Yong and Dr. Margaret Slowik, will also be taking opportunities elsewhere.  It has been a great pleasure providing for your eye care.

Each location will have a new doctor taking over the practice.  Your health records are confidential and, if you have visited the Shorewood location, all records will remain on file at the office under Dr. Tanya Le’s custodianship.   If you have had an eye exam since November 2019 in Lemont, your records will be in the Lemont office under Dr. Amna Malik’s custodianship.  A copy can be transferred to another doctor or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. If you choose to seek eye care elsewhere, please contact our office, by calling the Lemont office at 630-243-1492 or Shorewood at 815-254-6692, or stopping in, to sign an authorization form so we may transfer your records to a new location.  You may also access the form here and return it to our office: https://eforms.com/download/2016/10/HIPAA-Authorization-for-Use-or-Disclosure-of-Health-Information.pdf

If you have visited the Lemont office before November 2019, and not since, your health records will stay in my custody.  I may be reached after 6/28/21 at MyEyeDr. located at 310 S. Weber Rd, Bolingbrook.  The phone number is 630-771-0600.

I have greatly valued your loyalty and friendship over the years.  Thank you for trusting me with your eye care needs.
