To all my patients and families,

I hope this letter finds you all in good health and spirits. Today I am writing to share some bittersweet news with you. As I reflect on the incredible journey we’ve shared over the past 34 years, it is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from the practice of pediatrics at the end of this year. It was not an easy decision for me to make, for I have cherished every moment spent in the company of my patients and families. I will never forget the countless moments of joy, laughter, and even tears that we have shared together. Witnessing the growth, development, and resilience of my patients and families has been an awe inspiring experience.

I want to assure you that the continued care of my patients is very important to me during this transition. I have complete confidence in the pediatricians at EPPC who will be taking over for me. They share my dedication to providing compassionate healthcare. Your trust in them will be well placed, as they possess the expertise and warmth that I’ve always sought to provide.
I wish you and your families a future filled with health, happiness, and endless possibilities. With heartfelt gratitude,

David Skau, MD
