We heard through the Mamavine that after 32 years of taking care of Seattle’s kiddos, Wallingford Pediatrics will close at the end of September. From the Wallingford Pediatrics website:
Wallingford Pediatrics Says ‘Goodbye’
Wallingford Pediatrics 4005 Wallingford Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98103
Amye Hadley, A.R.N.P., N.D David Springer, M.D., M.P.H. July 27, 2012
To all of the Patients at Wallingford Pediatrics: After 32 years Wallingford Pediatrics is closing its doors on September 28, 2012. We would love to continue providing compassionate family-centered care but cannot survive as an independent practice with the costs of electronic medical records, computer hardware updates, and the burdensome limitations imposed by insurance billing. We will gladly help in transitioning care to another provider but you should first check with your insurance company about your options. We are enclosing a medical release of records for your convenience. After the practice closes you can continue directing inquiries to: Wallingford Pediatrics P.O. Box 31509 Seattle, Washington 98103 I personally want to express my fondest appreciation to each of you who over the years has provided me so much more than I could ever return. Thank you, David Springer, M.D., M.P.H. Owner Wallingford Pediatrics, PLLC
We’re also told that Dr. Springer is retiring, and Dr. Dryer will be an urgent care doctor at Children’s Hospital.
