Patient Comments (2)
Shreveport, LA |
This doctor was the treating physician for my mother, Elizabeth L. Fox, in 2000. Underwood falsified her death certificate to cover his negligent treatment of her. The district attorney, Paul Carmouche, failed to prosecute him stating that his falsification was just a technical violation. Underwood intentionally failed to inform this writer, her son, of the patient's condition. The patient died of neglect in Doctor's Hospital which later closed due to overall shoddy treatment of patients.
