Robert A. Colon, O.D.
I will be retiring on June 2, 2022, after nearly 47 years in practice, 43 of them here in Elko. It is gratifying to look back and see the progress and advancements in technology that have been made, allowing us to provide much higher quality care to our patients.
I just want you to know how much 1 appreciate your confidence in me over the years. It truly has been an honor and a pleasure to care for and co-manage patients. However, it is a bittersweet time of life to step back and let the younger doctors take over responsibility for the people who have come to mean so much to me. Although I know I'm leaving their care in very capable hands, I will miss that recurring contact with them and with you.
But.....I've been blessed with a very rewarding, fulfilling career and have enjoyed every minute of it. It's never felt like work. I have no regrets and am looking forward to having more time to spend hunting, fishing, puttering in the yard, traveling, having fun with our family and friends, and aggravating my wife. Onward to new pursuits and interests. Thank you!
