DR AMY GENSLER
Please see the following letter from Dr. Gensler regarding her current health condition. We are so saddened to lose such an amazing pediatrician as part of our PPA team, but look forward to our continued friendship.
If you have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Gensler in our office, you will be contacted to reschedule with another provider. We are committed to continue to care for your children.
We are also happy to collect cards or mementos for Dr. Gensler to deliver at a later date.
We thank you for trusting us with the care of your children always and especially during this difficult time.

To the families and patients at Parker Pediatrics & Adolescents:
As many of you know, I have been on medical leave since mid-July 2021 due to some significant heart and cardiovascular problems. My health has not been stable since and my prognosis at this time is guarded to fair. After serious thought and consideration, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to resign from PPA where I have been a physician for the past 21 years. My health simply is not stable enough for me to be a dependable physician, which all of you deserve and need me to be.
My resignation is effective immediately. I will no longer be seeing patients at the office. However, I will be on after hours call from time to time through December 31, 2021.
As you can imagine this has been a difficult decision that was not made lightly and it is unfortunately not how I envisioned retiring from medicine. I want to thank you for the privilege of providing health care to your children. I have highly valued the trusted relationships we have developed. For some of you, we have known each other and fostered close relationships for almost 21 years. For others, we met just a few times over the years, and for some, we just met this year, but each and every child I had the opportunity to meet and provide care for holds a special place in my heart.
For those who have been with me for many years, we sure went through some fun and great times together and celebrated many of your children’s wonderful milestones together. On occasion, we also endured some very challenging times together when your children were sick or in pain. The memories and relationships will always be a cherished part of me.
As a parent myself and seeing how fast your children have grown, I appreciate this quote by Gretchen Rubin: The days are long, but the years are short. I know some days as a parent are tough, but in the end, raising a child is a gift and one of the most amazing experiences life can offer. Thank you for the opportunity to meet and work with the most exceptional and extraordinary parents that exist. I was and am truly in awe of each of you and what you accomplish day in and day out to raise such honorable and respectable kids/human beings.
Please know my colleagues at PPA look forward to providing ongoing health care for your children. I wish you and your family the best of everything in the future.
Amy Gensler, MD
