The insurance folks are way ahead of this information. That is why it is a very good idea to review local hospitals ďapproved doctors listĒ when reviewing any doctor credentials. If a doctor is having issues in their practice, they are usually eliminated from the list of approved doctors, who practice within any given hospital first by the liability insurance carrier first!

It is just unbelievable that Dr. Toolsie is allowed to practice in any state not just TN. Word has it he just went to GA after his many acts of violation in the state of TN. Why can't these border states communicate with each other. He is more than likely doing the same thing in Ga.
