“During my 20 year career in Mississippi hospitals, I have extensively utilized Wise Carter and their professional staff to provide counsel and guidance through many complex contract, reimbursement and medical malpractice issues and events. Their knowledge, expertise and timeliness were essential to successfully navigating these issues and arriving at the most beneficial outcome for the hospital.
