Dear Patients

It has been an honor and a privilege to have served you as a physician for the past 34 years.

The advances in therapeutics and technology over that period of time have been staggering, enabling us to treat and cure many conditions that were previously thought untreatable, and I am proud to have played a part in this.

More than that, though, is the deep humility I feel in having gained your trust in allowing me to be a part of your lives, as you all have been a part of mine.

It is thus, with mixed emotions, that I announce my transition to a non-clinical, administrative position within the NY Presbyterian Hudson Valley family.

Many of you already know Dr. David Lin MD, who has been practicing with me for many years.

David is a fine physician, and has served as my own Gastroenterologist. Dr. Lin will be, with your permission, assuming your ongoing care, at our present locations in Cortlandt Manor and Carmel; along with the same Staff you’ve all come to know.

Rest assured that your records will be available to Dr. Lin, or any other physician, should you choose to go elsewhere.

I intend to remain a strong voice in the ongoing conversations about the delivery of healthcare going forward.

With Warm Regards,

Eric S Teitel, M.D.
