I agree shortmedic69, Larry is a great doctor and a great guy.

Great doctor. Great guy. I still want him as my doctor.

He had a shotgun in his pickup, he has every right to possess that he is a rancher and has property. He was not brandishing it, it was just sitting in the rack of his truck. ETMC was very wrong in the way they handled this situation, I hope he gets very good attorneys and takes ETMC for what there worth. The poor man is going through tough times, ETMC should have offered him help instead of getting rid of probably one of the best doctors Jacksonville has ever had. No ones perfect including him.
