Latest Cancer Clinic Closure in Selma, Alabama
Date:3/17/2010

Another oncologist who closed his practice this week is Dr. Robert Carroll of Gainesville, FL, who built a renowned solo practice as a breast cancer specialist. Because of the financial losses that occur when oncologists purchase the expensive drugs needed for cancer chemotherapy – the cost of which is not fully covered by Medicare – Dr. Carroll was faced with an outstanding balance of more than $300,000 owed to cancer drug suppliers.

"I practiced cost-conscious medicine," Dr. Carroll explained, "and avoided expensive drugs with marginal benefits. But the Medicare and private insurance reimbursement has become worse and worse. I cut staff and quit taking my own salary in November, but even that has not been enough. Reimbursement on patient care is just not enough to keep my practice open."

Recently Dr. Carroll has been forced to send his Medicare patients to local hospitals for chemotherapy. Once there, patients have reported excessive delays in receiving chemotherapy which, in the hospital setting, costs Medicare far more than the same treatment administered in the community oncology setting. Several more practices currently face closure in Florida.
