Respected local physician, Abdul Rathor, M.D., has announced his planned retirement from United Memorial’s Cardiology and Internal Medicine practice effective Nov. 30.
Dr. Rathor began practicing in Batavia in September 1975 after completing a Fellowship in Cardiology at Albert Einstein Medical Center, a Residency in Internal Medicine at Grasslands Hospital in Valhalla and an Internship at Flushing Hospital. He was a 1965 graduate of King Edward Medical College in Lahare, Pakistan.
Dr. Rathor has served in many healthcare leadership roles including chief of Cardiology for Genesee Memorial. During the merger period of Genesee Memorial and St. Jerome Hospitals, Dr. Rathor joined in practice with Dr. Keun Oh and Dr. Midul Khan forming Genesee Cardiology and Internal Medicine at 229 Summit Street, Batavia.
In 2011, following the retirements of Dr. Kahn and Dr. Oh, the practice became affiliated with United Memorial and Cardiologist Syed A. Shah, M.D., joined the practice.
To provide continuity of care, Susan Riner, N.P., will continue to care for patients and Michael D. Merrill, M.D., has started practicing at United Memorial Cardiology and Internal Medicine. Dr. Merrill serves as the vice president of Medical Affairs for United Memorial and was a hospitalist for the Endion Hospitalist Group.
Patients of Dr. Rathor may choose to continue with Dr. Merrill at the practice or contact the office to have their medical records transferred.
“Dr. Rathor’s day-to-day presence, care and clinical expertise will be greatly missed by his patients and colleagues. We appreciate his many decades of dedicated service and wish him well in his retirement,” said UMMC President and CEO Mark Schoell.
