Sometimes looks are not deceiving

Looks can be deceiving. However, if it walks and quacks like a duck, often it is in fact a duck. I was reminded of that this morning when WAPT reported the government is seeking forfeiture in the Rose Clinic cancer treatment fraud case from South Mississippi. According to various news stories, the
quacks parties involved fraudulently billed Medicare, reused needles, and diluted chemotherapy drugs. Horrible treatment for cancer patients already suffering.
Just from looking at WAPTs picture of the exterior of the Rose Clinic, I might not jump to the hasty conclusion that the clinic was involved in fraud, but it would be pretty apparent that it wasn’t exactly a premier medical provider.
This is what cancer treatment centers are supposed to look like. Nobody likes to pay a bunch of money to go to the doctor. But when I do have to go, I feel more comfortable sitting in an office where it looks like the doctor is prospering.
