88-Year-Old Doctor Working out of His Car is Being Asked to Give Up His Medical License

For over fifty year Dr. Carrol Landrum has been serving as a local doctor to the people of a tiny western Mississippi community, where he has been giving house calls out of his dented, black, 2007 Toyota Camry.

For decades Dr. Landrum’s house calls have been serving the small town of Edwards Mississippi, a town with about 1,000 people living in it.

Dr. Landrum is a 88 year-old war veteran, whose practices have just been halted because the medical board did not like the senior writing prescriptions and working out of his car. Although Landrum was originally from Taylorville; he has been working in Edwards since 1959.

“I didn’t know there was any law against it,” states Landrum to Fox News.

“He said the director had told him to ask me to surrender my license right then and there or I would come before the board,” states Landrum, And he said basically, ‘If you surrender it here, nobody would know about it. But if it goes to the board, it’ll be public knowledge and it might affect your reputation.”

Landrum claims that despite the investigation, which has been monitoring his movements and all the visits he has made over the past few months, he is determined to continue serving the people of the community.

He claims that the people he serves, “These people absolutely need me,” said Landrum, who served as a sonar operator in the Navy during World War II, doing a stint in the Pacific Theater, where his role was to help protect U.S. destroyers from enemy submarines. “I see the need and I’m trying to fulfill it as much as possible.”

Fox News has researched the subject of working as a doctor out of one’s vehicle in Mississippi, and has yet to find any law that prohibits these practices. There have been no legal actions taken against Landrum because of that fact, but an investigation is still being filed.

Landrum currently still has his medical license, and plans to continue despite the negative looks from the board.
