Saw Duffy because I suspected I had chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). I was unable to work due to debilitating fatigue & flu like sxs. Rheumatologists are supposed to dx CFS. He said CFS was a made-up dx for a bunch of lazy housewives in Nevada. Based on his evaluation, my PCP fired me & banned me from Intercoastal. Later I was dx'ed with reactivated mono thru blood test. Eventually became so debilitated had to quit working & am home bound with severe CFS. Duffy is a disgrace to his profession.
