San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
On January 3rd, 2013, the medical practice of Harold Rodgers, M.D. will merge with the California Skin Institute, Northern California's largest private dermatology practice. The San Jose/Santa Clara- based practice will become the ninth location of the California Skin Institute, and the second location serving San Jose, Santa Clara, and the surrounding areas.
Anjali Morales M.D., PhD, and Amena Deluca, M.D. will work initially alongside Dr. Rodgers and then will transition to full time patient care as Dr. Rodgers reduces his clinic time. The office will remain open and welcoming of shared patients, as well as new patients. Despite the changes in personnel, Dr. Rodgers and the California Skin Institute will maintain the excellence that Dr. Rodgers practice has always embodied. “I am confident that this office will continue to see your patients promptly, care for them with individual attention and excellence, offer new and effective state-of-the art treatments, and communicate the treatment plan by phone call or letter to referring doctors in a timely manner,” Dr. Rodgers assured in a letter announcing the merger with California Skin Institute.
