    snrecnoc lDr. Sivaraju made 2 visits to my homebound father at times when I could not be present. First, he came 1.5 hrs. earlier than the scheduled time. The second was scheduled for a time that I was not available, despite my expressed request for that not to happen. I was advised my father's caregiver that the doctor replaced a soiled bandage after examining bedsores. When I called to express concerns about the visits, I requested a cb from the doctor. He left 2 VM both very curt.
