Dr. Jaffe is Retiring
To My Patients and their Providers,
I will be retiring this year on December 29, 2021. I truly want to thank you all for the privilege of being your doctor and colleague. It has been wonderful to be part of watching many of you grow up. I appreciate the trust you have placed in me and wish you all the best.
You can choose any doctor you want to continue your care. Our new doctor, Olga Hardin, is very well trained, having completed an Allergy/Immunology Fellowship at Duke. She is kind and compassionate and sees both children and adults. I will miss you.
