Physicians shocked by abrupt closure of their own clinic

Naples, Fla.-based Coastal Physician Care closed its doors and terminated all staff Oct. 28, catching its own physicians by surprise, according to a local news report from Fox 4.

The owners closed the practice, according to a note left on the window of the office, Fox 4 reported. The three physicians who worked there left a note on the door as well that they are seeking new employment, along with contact information for patients who need a new physician or prescription, according to the report.

The clinic's website says it is permanently closed and asks patients to "Please establish care with another physician or an urgent care."

Coastal Physician Care did not respond immediately to a request from Becker's for comment.
