Maybe they post the number on their sites as med pro is the biller for them? I dont know but it sure as hell looks fishy to me. Is this a standard practice?

I think it's showing us who Med Pro bills for! Combine that phone number with the word "rehab".Here's what the NPI (National Provider Identifier) is:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Provider_Identifier
Mary is an idiot and she deserves what she gets. I hope her sentence is the maximum allowed by law. A message needs to be sent to these guys. Shape up or ship out. Get in line with standard practices in the rehab field or fold up. Im fucking disgusted by the loss of life at AH and GA. It just doesnt have to happen.Dont even get me started on the scam in Michigan.
