TO ALL PATIENTS OF HOLISTIC FAMILY PRACTICE:

HFP is closed for business effective Monday, October 2nd, 2017. Due to many impactful changes in the local and national health care scene (detailed in this letter) it became necessary to close the business down. We attempted to reach all patients by regular mail back in July regarding this decision. While we made every effort to contact all patients on our computer roster, it is inevitable that some were missed due to simple human error or changes of address. If you are one of those individuals, accept my apology. Following are simple instructions on what you’ll need to do to obtain your medical records, or, if you are an established patient of Dr. March, to follow him to his new practice location in Rowley.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CALL US, NOR SHOULD YOU ATTEMPT TO USE THE ATHENA PATIENT PORTAL! Our phone number is no longer in service, and the Portal is no longer functional. This web site is the only link to the information you will need to expedite your medical care options from here on. Our mailing address - 65 Newburyport Turnpike, Newbury MA 010951 - remains valid for the next few weeks.

We understand that many patients may have waited until now to deal with the matter of signing medical release forms, obtaining records, etc. We will do our level best to promptly process your requests and inquiries.

In a month or so, this web page will be updated with new information on how to obtain medical records, or you may contact the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine at that time for further details.

Thank you for your many years of loyalty and patronage.

- Dr. Jonathan March & all the HFP staff -


Questions and Answers regarding our closing:

Will the present building remain open for business after October 1st, and what will become of the other ancillary providers there (eg. Ranan Cohen, Joan Flynn, Les Weiser)?.........Answer:

The building was closed for all business as of 4:00 PM on Friday, September 29th.  Ranan and Joan are now at 11 Market Square (Unit 8, 2nd Floor), Newburyport, as of September 1st Joan can be reached at 978.499.3955. Ranan can be reached at 978.499.3855 downtown, or either at 603.659.2528 (home office) or at 603.431.6677, x 240 at Whole Life Healthcare.

If I choose to transfer my medical care to NSPG (North Shore Physicians Group) in Rowley, how do I do this?.........Answer: 

Call NSPG at  (877) 892-7707 to make sure your insurance allows them to be your PCP.

Click here for a known list of insurances they do and don't take.

Once NSPG has your signed authorization, please contact their central registration at  (877) 892-7707 FIRST BEFORE calling the Rowley office location at (877) 379-5522 to schedule your future appointments.
 
A downloadable version of the records form to fax/mail or drop off to NSPG in Rowley is available here. Note: Leave the section for "PATIENT MEDICAL RECORD #" blank. 

Mail the completed form to North Shore Physicians Group, Attention Jackie,  414 Haverhill St, Rowley, MA 01969.

There is no fee for this. Do NOT use this form unless you want you records to go to NSPG. Do NOT mail this form to our Newbury office address. You must mail it to them at 414 Haverhill St., Rowley, MA 01969.


What do I do about my records if I do not plan to move my care to NSPG?.........Answer:
 

You will still have to choose a new PCP and sign a medical release form indicating to whom you wish records sent. All requests received from October 1st on must be accompanied by a check made out to Holistic Family Practice, Inc. for the amount of $20. No request can be processed without this pre-payment fee. We can no longer bill for this fee since we are no longer open for business.

If you do not designate a new PCP, but want your records for yourself, we will reproduce and release them to you via a data CD or a digitial download, but a fee will be required to be pre-paid at the same time we receive your records release form. We can no longer bill for this fee since we are no longer open for business.

If you are not going to NSPG or wish to request your own copy of records, use our generic records request form.

NOTE: WE REQUIRE UP TO 10 BUSINESS DAYS TO PROCESS ANY MEDICAL RECORDS REQUEST.

Mail
the form with your pre-payment fee check to Holistic Family Practice, Attention Medical Records, 65 Newburyport Turnpike, Newbury, MA 01951.

We will update this web site with the facility info that will handle future records archiving and records requests shortly.

If you do not wish to follow Dr. March, you must contact your insurance by Oct 1st to name a new PCP if he or our facility is currently named.

 
What is happening with Kate de Kanter, FNP and Lynne Henning, FNP?.........Answer: 

Kate and Lynne are both now at Coastal Medical Associates.
