88-Year-Old Doctor May Lose License For Working Out Of His Car
[su_right_ad]The Mississippi doctor treats poverty-stricken patients out of a Toyota Camry.
The Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure recently asked Dr. Carol Frazier Landrum, a private physician with more than 55 years experience, to hand over his medical license.
Landrum said he thinks the reason for the request is the board learning he openly practiced his care out of the back of his car. In a hearing at the Mississippi State Board Medical Licensure, Landrum said he was labeled “incompetent” because the board cannot identify a specific violation.
Landrum denies any wrongdoing and said he responds to patients who have no other option for care…
Over the last two years, Landrum met patients at a location most convenient for them – be it at their home, in a parking lot or inside his Camry.
Community members said they think Landrum served the community well and should not lose his medical license.
“There are many, many people here who do not have transportation to Vicksburg, Clinton, Jackson, and he truly serves a purpose,” said Karen Holt, an Edwards resident. “And there are people who come to him who would not get medical treatment otherwise.”
