Doctors’ house calls are considered a thing of the past, but not in the appointment book of Dr. Carrol Frazier Landrum, an 88-year-old physician from Edwards, Mississippi. The good doctor will see you no matter who you are, where you are, or how much money you have — as long his 2007 Toyota Camry can deliver him to your location. But now his state’s medical board wants to see him gone.
Dr. Landrum, a WWII veteran, was forced to make a change after crime drove him from his Edwards, Mississippi, office two years ago, and he couldn’t find another space suited to his practice. "I had my car, and I realized I could do most everything out of it that I needed to be doing," said Landrum, according to the Clarion-Ledger. The paper continued, and “for many in [sic] the town of Edwards' 1,034 residents and others in the metro area, that car has become a lifeline — it's the makeshift office of the 88-year-old Dr. Landrum, who is the only practicing physician in the town.”
