Questions linger about Carolinas Medical Center ALS expert

Charlotte Observer, February 8, 2008
A new director is about to start work at Carolinas Medical Center's ALS center, even as longtime patients continue to complain about the abrupt firing of Jeffrey Rosenfeld, MD, the center's founding director. In 2007, Rosenfeld took the unusual step of suing his former employer, claiming breach of contract and defamation of character. Charlotte, NC-based Carolinas Medical Center has denied the allegations. Since Rosenfeld's firing, some patients have criticized the hospital for removing the doctor, whose reputation drew patients from around the country.
