A Letter from Dr. John Pagana

I am sorry to announce my retirement from my and my daughter's practice starting January 1, 2017.

I have had some medical problems over the last year with a  new ankle replacement and infection after that procedure. I am hoping for a good result after the last surgery that was done on December 5th, so that I can enjoy my retirement from private practice. I will maintain my position as Volunteer Medical Director at our free clinic – A Community Clinic.


I have greatly enjoyed being your doctor and taking part in your interest in maintaining good health.

I tried my best to keep you healthy and know my daughter, Dr Jessica, will continue the mission of our practice. Dr Jessica is in the process of recruiting a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner to work with her who has the same philosophy of care as we do.


Again, thank you for the honor of serving you as your primary care practitioner for these many years.

What a joy it has been! Thank you for all of your kindness and generosity and yes even the “laughs”. I will remember all of you and pray that life continues to offer you good health and much joy.

John P. Pagana, MD, FAAFP
