Dr. Cottingham Patients:

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from active practice in the DFW area, effective June 11, 2020. It has been a great pleasure providing for your health care needs over the years, and it is not easy for me to give it up.

As of June 12, 2020, Dr. Scott Berlin will be taking over my practice. I am pleased that you have the opportunity to have him as your physician. Dr. Berlin is a well‑trained graduate of New York Medical College and completed his residency at Yale University of Medicine. I am glad to have left my patients in his capable hands. Of course, you may seek medical care from another doctor if you like. If you choose to do so, I recommend looking for a new physician as soon as possible. Your insurance carrier can help you begin your search by giving you the names of doctors in the area who are accepting new patients.

Your medical records are confidential, and a copy can be transferred to another doctor or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. If you plan to continue with this office, you can sign an authorization form to release your files to Dr. Berlin on your next visit. If you choose to see a different physician, you may sign an authorization form at our office, and we will transfer your records to your new doctor. Until then, your records will remain on file at my former office.

I have greatly valued our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. Best wishes for your future health.


Andrew J. Cottingham, MD
