AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM DR. SILVERS
Dear Colleagues and Friends:
I feel blessed to have worked with so many fine people over the past 33+ years of practice. I value our relationships and the trust you have put in me.
I am now transitioning Allergy Asthma Colorado P.C. into Colorado Allergy & Asthma Centers P.C. (CAAC), effective April 1, 2016, and will thereafter operate under their umbrella. They will continue to capably care for our patients at our Greenwood Medical Center office. My colleagues at Colorado Allergy, many friends and some of whom I helped train at the University’s Allergy Clinic, are well positioned for the future in medicine.
Over the following 3 months I look forward to personally transitioning our patients’ care over to CAAC. As of July 1st, I will no longer be seeing patients at either Allergy Asthma Colorado or with Colorado Allergy & Asthma Centers. After the transition is complete, I will be taking a “vacation/sabbatical” for perhaps 6-12 months. I have the honor and responsibility of being on the organizing committee for the World Allergy Organization International Scientific Conference to be held in Jerusalem, Israel, December 6-9, 2016. I will continue teaching as a Clinical Professor at the University of Colorado School Of Medicine’s Allergy Immunology Division, on the Board of Regents of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology; on the steering committee of the Aspen Allergy Conference; and as Chair of the Sports Medicine Committee of the World Allergy Organization. I shall be able to devote more time to the Holocaust Genocide Contemporary Bioethics Program at the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at CU, which I helped establish.
I hope I have met the calling of our profession and the expectations you have had of capable, creative and compassionate care for our patients. After acquiring some new experiences, I look forward to further my work in personalized, integrative care for allergy and asthma patients, which I have written and spoken about locally and nationally. I trust my colleagues at Colorado Allergy will continue to support the values I have embraced for these many years. We in Colorado are fortunate to have a high quality of allergy and asthma expertise available. As the landscape of medicine is evolving, let’s remember to keep the patient first, for “we are only as good as our last patient!”
Let’s keep in touch. My email is email@example.com.
With appreciation and hopes for a “Breathe Easy” future, I wish you health, happiness, peace and prosperity.

DEAR PRECIOUS PATIENTS OF ALLERGY ASTHMA COLORADO, P.C.
It has been my great privilege and pleasure to care for you during my past 33+ years of practice. I have approached our relationship with respect and responsibility, and hope I have cared for you capably and compassionately.
Effective April 1, 2016, I am transitioning my practice into Colorado Allergy & Asthma Centers, P.C. (CAAC) , colleagues with whom I have worked for many years, and several of whom are good friends. They are an excellent group of physicians and support staff with 10 locations in the Denver Metro area, soon to be 11 with our Greenwood Medical Center office, which I started over 33 years ago. Sky Ridge patients please see the information specific to our Lone Tree location in the next column. All of your medical records will continue to be maintained at the Greenwood office in the future. Colorado Allergy & Asthma is well positioned to continue your care with the same values I have striven for at Allergy Asthma Colorado P.C.
Over the ensuing 3 months, I invite you to schedule a summary visit, so I may personally transition your care over to CAAC. As of July 1st, I will no longer be seeing patients at either Colorado Allergy & Asthma Centers or with Allergy Asthma Colorado. After this transition, I shall take a vacation/sabbatical for perhaps 6-12 months to travel and spend some time in Israel, where I am on the organizing committee for the World International Scientific Conference this December. I will also attend to some projects I have put on the back burner until now. After my travels, I wish to further my research in personalized, integrative allergy care; something I have developed, spoken and written about over the years. I will continue as a Clinical Professor at the University of Colorado Allergy Division, on the Board of Regents of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology; on the steering committee of the Aspen Allergy Conference; and as Chair of the Sports Medicine Committee of the World Allergy Organization. I shall also devote more time to the Holocaust Genocide Contemporary Bioethics Program at the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at CU, which I helped establish.
My staff, and the staff of Colorado Allergy & Asthma, will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We are trying to make this transition as seamless as possible. In the meantime, feel free to visit their website at www.coloradoallergy.com to learn more.
I thank you again for the trust you have placed in me. I hope I have measured up to the calling. I wish you good health, happiness, peace, prosperity, and a “Breathe Easy” future.
