An Important Message from Dr. Brown

Dear Patients:

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your gastroenterologist. I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me to participate in your healthcare.

As some of you may know, I am a Huntsville native, and after years of post-graduate study, I returned here to open my practice in July of 1984. I have had the pleasure of working alongside great colleagues at the Center for Colon & Digestive Disease, PC. The practice of medicine has been an integral part of my life, so it is with some degree of sadness that I am writing to inform you that I will be retiring as of December 31, 2020.

It is of utmost importance to me that you continue to have quality gastrointestinal healthcare, and in view of this, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Khurshid Yousuf will be joining our practice as of January 1, 2021. I have worked with Dr. Yousuf at the Madison Surgery Center since 2004. During this time, I have had ample opportunity to observe the quality of the care and treatment of his patients, and I recommend him to you.

Your medical records are confidential and remain on file with our practice. You may schedule an appointment with Dr. Yousuf, or if you prefer, with any of the other equally competent physicians in our group, who are all board- certified gastroenterologists, simply by calling our office at 256-533-6488. I would encourage you to continue with our practice, but if you do choose a physician outside of this practice, you will need to sign a records release form, which you can obtain from our office.

This has been a difficult decision for me but I believe that now is the right time for me to proceed with my retirement and I am looking forward to this new phase of my life. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this process may cause for you but should you stay with the practice, I am convinced that you will receive the quality of care that you desire. I again recommend Dr. Yousuf, as well as any of the other physicians in the practice, for your future gastrointestinal healthcare needs.
