Dear patients, families and friends of Sonoran Sky Pediatrics-
With deep sadness, after over ten years of serving our community, Sonoran Sky Pediatrics will be closing its doors June 14, 2019. Our last day to see patients will be June 7, 2019. We are closing due to financial insolvency.
All of Sonoran Sky Pediatrics’ providers will be remaining in the local community and will be happy to see your familiar faces once they start to work at a new pediatric practice. If you would like to stay with your current doctor or provider, please watch our Facebook page and our website for updates. We will make sure to tell you the names and locations of the new practices our providers join once it becomes certain.
If you follow a provider to a new practice, you will need to register as a patient with the new practice and they can request medical records from us on your behalf. Medical records must be requested in writing accompanied by a signature from the legal custodial parent or guardian. You will have the ability to request your medical records until your child has turned 21 years old. You do not have to request your records before June 14, 2019, and we recommend that you wait until your children are established with a new practice.
We have been honored and privileged to serve you and your family. Personally, my life has been blessed by you and your families, and my work as your doctor has been fulfilling in so many ways.
-Dr. Ruth Letizia
How do I handle medication refills?
Depending on the judgement of our doctors, children that are prescribed medications by our office may request three months of refills starting in June. If it has been more than 6 months since your child’s last visit in the office, they will be asked to schedule an appointment prior to medication refills. Due to our concerns about limited appointment availability, please schedule any ADHD or asthma management visits as soon as possible. We will not be seeing patients after June 7, 2019. Medication refills must be requested BEFORE June 7, 2019. We will not be refilling medications after June 12, 2019.
Medications for controlled substances written in June will be paper prescriptions only. After June 14, 2019, our providers may not legally write medications until they start work at a new practice. We will be unable to troubleshoot electronic medications after June 14, 2019.
How do I handle referrals?
Please call our office at 480-365-0050 to request any referral that will be needed prior to September 1, 2019. If you have an appointment scheduled between now and September 1, 2019 with a specialist, please call and verify if they will need an updated referral from us. Referrals must be requested BEFORE June 7, 2019.
