Dr. Scholl’s Retirement


Dear Patients:

After 35 years of practice in the Austin area, I will be retiring from active practice from Austin Ear, Nose and Throat Associates effective April 9, 2021. It has been my pleasure and privilege to serve the community for its needs in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery over the last 35 years. I have enjoyed caring for my patients and the relationships that developed as a result.

I will be leaving the practice in the hands of Dr. Daniel Ratcliff and Dr. Jeffrey Zapalac at 7200 Wyoming Springs Dr., Suite 1400, Round Rock, TX 78681.

Your medical records will be held securely in our office unless you wish to transfer your care to a physician outside our practice. In that case, please print out the Medical Record Release form found on this website, complete the form and fax to (512) 580-0097. Our staff will continue to provide the same quality of care they have provided for many years.

I wish you all a healthy life and continued prosperity and I want to thank you for the privilege of caring for your medical needs.


Peter D. Scholl, D.D.S., M.D.
