The doctor Klufas interviewed me at the nurses station without introducing himself asking me personal medical questions with visitors at a busy nurses station compromising my privacy rights then I asked him to introduce himself and follow me to my room and he stayed in the doorway and barely listened to me for three minutes and then left never ordered any of the blood work test that he said that he would I do not think he cares about his patients or spend as much time with them at all
