A Message from Dr. Mutch: After much thought and reflection, I am announcing my retirement from the practice of medicine, effective the end of 2018. We are currently working on a replacement for me. Until someone is found my partners will do their very best to accommodate all those wishing to stay with Family Practice. Please be patient with them as they ar already very busy but I am hopeful we will find a new partner soon. You can review the bios of our current medical staff by visiting Meet the Physicians tab.
I want to say a heartfelt thank you to my partners at Family Practice. I have been blessed to be associated with the most competent and caring group of doctors I have ever known in medicine. You are, and always will be; very special to me. I also want to thank our management and staff at Family Practice. The technical and modern day demands of delivering health care are unimaginable and they do it, tirelessly, with care and compassion day after day. You guys are the best.
Lastly, to my patients, “Thank you.” It has been my great joy and honor to share in your health care. The trust and friendship we have cultivated over these many years is precious to me. It has been a privilege to know and serve you; to share your lives.
