Hi Charles,

Thank you for your responsiveness to the request. I understand that you redacted the date of service. I'm wondering if it would be possible to include the date. If not, would you be able to include the year?

You're welcome to call me at 917-405-8270 if you have any questions.

"Good afternoon, Greta,

All of the green tobacco patients in the chart had 2021 dates of service. To protect the identity of the patient, we are unable to provide you with the full date.

Thank you.
