Dear Patient:

As you know, Linda Fallon, NP accepted a new position in March 2022. Additionally, Kimberly Angelini, DNP will soon be on maternity leave.

I am collaborating over the ensuing months with practitioners at Nova Womens’ Health in North Reading and Burlington Obgyn Associates in Burlington to provide you with professionals that I trust to care for you. These include:

Anju Nayar MD, FACOG;

Yoon Cho MD, FACOG;

Julianne Scott DO;
