Angry parents protest dismissal of well-respected Carolinas HealthCare System pediatrician
Charlotte Observer, February 19, 2008
Mary Lindsay-Barber, a beloved pediatrician at Indian Trail Pediatrics, owned and operated by the Carolinas HealthCare System, was fired from her job on February 1. Outraged, parents who took their children to Lindsay-Barber began a campaign of protest. They started a blog--www.supportmarybarber.blogspot.com--to notify other parents and urge them to request their medical records and leave the Indian Trail group, and posted a letter to Paul Franz, executive vice president of Carolinas HealthCare System. Officials at Carolinas HealthCare said they are prohibited by state law from discussing personnel decisions.
