Practice Closure

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the closing of Sierra Pulmonary & Sleep Institute.
Our office will permanently close on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
 
Due to forces beyond our control, including Medicare requirements, hospital control of the local referrals and challenges with private insurance reimbrusement, we have decided to cease operations and refer our patients to other local and regional providers for their continued care. 
 
YOUR CARE MOVING FORWARD
Most of your prescriptions for items such as CPAP supplies, oxygen and medications are good for a year from your last clinic visit date. You will need to establish with a new provider within that 12-month period to obtain new orders. Please see link below for Provider List.
 
We have greatly appreciated the priveledge and opportunity to care for you over the years and hope you find the care you deserve in our absence.
 
Sincerely,
Michael A. Lucia, MD, FCCP
Rachel Brooks, Practice Manager
