In 2014, I started Atlantic Spine and Pain with the goal of providing quality and individualized care to my patients, which is something I felt was missing in a lot of medical practices. Creating this healing environment and working with my patients these last 9 years has been extremely gratifying. Due to personal circumstances, however, I am writing this letter to notify you that I am stepping down from direct patient care as of June 30, 2023.
This decision was very difficult for me, as I have developed close clinical relationships with all of you. My plan is to remain active in the practice in a non-clinical role as a business owner and administrator. Atlantic Spine & Pain will continue operations and your care with the amazing Ali Elios, PA when she returns from maternity leave, and our very experienced provider, Davis Holt, F-NP. Both of these providers will be able to perform minor injections as well as manage your medication needs and care. Dr. Brian Keogh, my wonderful colleague from Holly Springs, will be providing care on site for more advanced procedures. I am fully confident that the transition of care will be seamless, and you will continue to experience the quality of care you have come to expect and deserve.
Also, with the official end of the public health emergency, we are going to stop telehealth visits as of July 7, 2023 and resume in-office only appointments. We know this may be an inconvenience for some of you, but we hope you will understand that resuming pre-pandemic operations is the best option for your health and safety.
I would sincerely like to thank each of you for your trust and support over the years, and for making me part of your life journeys. Though I am saying goodbye to direct patient care with a heavy heart, I am confident that our team at Atlantic Spine & Pain will continue offering you outstanding care and treatment.
Best regards and continued health,
Dr. Catherine Duncan
