It is with a heavy heart that we write this letter to tell you that we will be dissolving our practice, Northwest Florida Diabetes & Nutrition Center. The last day of patient care at our current Crestview location will be July 21st.

However, on a positive note, Deanna will continue her practice under a new name. Her new practice will be Emerald Coast Diabetes & Nutrition Center with an office location in Crestview and she will continue to use the current location in Fort Walton Beach. She will also have more flexibility with the option of home visits for some patients that could include grocery store tours or eating out challenges. Deanna’s new office number is 850-374-7604.

Pat will be taking some time off but plans to start seeing patients again, if her health permits, in the fall. In that case, she would also be contacting your office with more detailed information.

It has been a pleasure working with all of our patients over the last three years. We both look forward to continuing that partnership in the future. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your care.

Deanna and Pat
