    Richmond Hill, NY |
    Neglected my husband's lymphoma with weak followup after treatment. Kept saying he was cured. We switched to Sloan when it came back. Klafter did not take his symptoms seriously when they started to return. Boy were we fooled by his charm.
    Atlanta, GA |
    He thinks he is funny, and isn't! Called 2 days before and rescheduled 3rd appointment. Had 3 appointments, late for the first, no show on the second and had his PA fill in, third - waited nearly an hour in the exam room before I decided to leave, then he magicly showed up and said he was with a patient that was more serious than my condition.
