    Dr. Ross stood up to Mercy and there business pratices and exposed there treatment of people that worked for them. He resigned but worked it out with Mercy and stayed working for them I exchange for better treatment of employees. A year later this all happens. Looks like he crossed Mercy and he will pay. Mercy does not forget.

        It’s a Ghetto business run by people who don’t pay any taxes. They use the same business tactics you would find a street drug enforcer using to manage their employees and patients. How many of you people out there have been double billed by Mercy?
