John A. Miyano, M.D.

Dear Colleagues and Patients:

I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that after 27 years of continuous clinical work, I will be taking a brief sabbatical this year.   I will be out of the office between July 1, 2023 and September 30th, 2023.

I am very fortunate to have four outstanding partners in my practice who will be taking care of the needs of my patients until I return.  My medical assistant, Christina, will still be in the office the majority of the time that I will be out and will help coordinate any care issues that arise.

Rest assured that I will be returning to practice in the fall.  I am simply taking some time to spend with family and friends and exercise the non-medical parts of my brain.

Thank you for your understanding.   I look forward to seeing everyone upon my return in October, with renewed energy and enthusiasm!
