Dr. Distefano Retiring
as of June 30, 2023
Dear Dr. Distefano Patients,
I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to inform you of my decision to retire after 40+ years from my practice as an orthopedic surgeon. After careful consideration, I have come to the realization that it is time for me to embark on the next chapter of my life.
Over the years, it has been my privilege and honor to serve as your orthopedic surgeon. The trust and confidence you have placed in me have been truly humbling, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of your healthcare journey. Each patient encounter has been a valuable learning experience, and I have cherished the relationships we have built along the way.
Retiring from my practice was not an easy decision for me to make. However, I am confident that my colleagues will continue to provide you with the excellent care you deserve. The chief surgeon of Orthopedic Sports Medicine and Joint Replacement, Dr James Cahill along with the other doctors of this practice will be taking over care of my patients. I have been a part of this practice for the past 2 years and am confident in their knowledge and expertise. Both the Paramus and Hackensack location will remain open. All of your records will remain with the practice.
I want to express my sincere appreciation for your support, loyalty, and cooperation throughout our doctor-patient relationship. Your resilience, determination, and trust have always inspired me, and I feel privileged to have been a part of your healing process. Please know that you will always hold a special place in my heart and memories.
Finally, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your trust, kindness, and patience over the years. It has been an honor to serve as your orthopedic surgeon, and I am grateful for the privilege to have been a part of your lives.
Thank you once again for your understanding and support. Please accept my warmest wishes for your continued health, happiness, and prosperity.
With sincerest gratitude,
Michael Distefano, MD
