Dr. Goettsch's Retirement Letter


September 9, 2019


Dear Brighton Hill Chiropractic Member, Vendor, Referring Provider, and Friend,

Many of you have wondered about me, for good reason, since I have been out of the office for a lengthy amount of time. This letter is too long in coming (and is probably too long, too!)  I hope you will accept my apology and forgive me for not being more available and not communicating with you before now. Now pieces have fallen into place and I’d like to share with you what the heck is going on. 

In July 2017 I was diagnosed with a significant illness.  Initially, I felt the need to protect my privacy while striving to make sure that the practice, patients and staff needs at Brighton Hill Chiropractic were met.  Many of the difficult things I was facing were countered by many wonderful blessings that I believe were God led.  I sought alternative and traditional treatment with some success.  I had two different and lengthy opportunities to sell the practice but they both ended up not working out, so I am faced with closing the practice.  Both Dr. Hamm and Dr. Mehanovic can be reached by calling our office before the end of October 2019.  My priorities now are on my family and experiencing retirement.

One has the opportunity to become very philosophical when faced with egregious challenges. I have drawn my line in the sand on the following issues:

Dr. Chris Piering is taking over as custodian of our patient records, including files and EHR, at the end of October. Between now and the end of October 2019 you can receive copies of your records or have them sent to another chiropractic practice by request. After October 31, 2019 please contact Camillus Chiropractic 315 Bridge St, Syracuse, NY 13209 at (315) 487-2225.  Dr. Piering and his staff are caring and skilled chiropractors. The Camillus Chiropractic office will be accepting any Brighton Hill Chiropractic patients who want to continue their chiropractic care at their location near the State Fairgrounds. Feel free to schedule with them if you are looking for a new chiropractic practice to go to for care.

Feel free to stop in the office until the end of October 2019, call the office (315-492-4060) or check our website at www.brightdocs.com. Many of us go back a long way! My email address is:carriegoettsch@hotmail.com.  So, I will end this letter the same way I started it, by asking for forgiveness. I did disappear a bit abruptly over the past two winters and this year.  I had a lot to figure out.  For now, I am attending 100% to this health journey.


Stay in touch if you like.
