CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
It is with great disappointment that Dr. Foust must announce the closure of practice at Port Orange Gynecology. As a small private business, we have struggled against setbacks ever since the COVID lock-down. Five employees dwindled to one on Sep 29, 2021 with the unexpected early exit of our manager. We will no longer be able to provide your medical care. Existing appointments are cancelled, and we cannot reschedule them. You will have to find another Ob-Gyn office or other option for your routine or specialized gynecology care.
Luckily, we have excellent Ob-Gyn's in our medical community. If you need help choosing, it is best to contact your insurance company to find a provider in network with your insurance that is accepting new patients.
***As a reminder, your health records are confidential. The secure portal will remain open for now, but not beyond 2021. A copy of your records can be released to your new Ob-Gyn with your signed release form. You can use our form or theirs and either mail it or FAX it to 888.987.7157.
Remember, if you verified your PCP at each visit, then they should already receive visit summaries and copies of labs and imaging, including pap smears and mammogram reports.
Thank you for trusting us with your health care needs. It has been a pleasure to know you and to provide your care. We wish you the best in the future.
Paula M Foust, MD and Traci Owens, Med Asst
