Wow what a jerk. This is why I dislike 50% of medical doctors. Half are superb humans. The other half, money hungry animals in a white coat.
But Kelly told the local Beaver County Times that the meaning of the letter has been misconstrued, and that it was simply a “humanitarian” gesture to allow Jumper to collect unemployment.
Visnich wrote the letter, Kelly explained, “with the understanding that when she is feeling better, she can come back to work.”
He added that the media coverage, which has blown up this week, has been “very disappointing, in that he’s trying to help this woman and he’s made out to be a villain.”
A friend of Jumper’s, John Barkovich, who has been helping to plan fundraisers in support of her treatment costs, told Yahoo Health that the coverage has indeed gotten out of hand. “She wants to drop the whole thing,” he said. “Somebody posted the letter on Facebook with good intentions, to alert friends that Carol is now unemployed.” He added that Jumper “is not worried about the doctor at all, and she made it quite clear to me that she wants [the attention] diffused.”

I hate to say it but would you pay someone to mow your yard even though they can't mow your yard?
This lady will not be able to do her job so he laid her off. He will not pay her but she will get unemployment.
It was heartless to do this with a letter but he had to do it.

I don't know about anyone else, but, I find this appalling. 12 years on the job and get canned for cancer. My heart goes out for this soul. This is heartbreaking. I hope she has good insurance from the Dr. she worked for. Maybe it was better for insurance if she was laid off. I wish her the best.www.yahoo.com...
