in San Antonio, TX |
Thus doctor nor his nurse practitioner never even examined me!!! I saw this doctor for the first time for lymphoma (which causes enlarged lymph nodes!!) and there was NO physical exam. How can a physician tell what is abnormal for a specific patient if NO baseline exam is done. I can not trust this physician with decisions concerning my life and am going to find a different physician!!!!

Toward the end of my treatment, saw Dr Jaffer maybe three times over 7 was, I got really ill. My efforts to see or talk to Dr Jaffer were for naught. Twice I called to talk to him and first time talked to another dr who said if you are that sick go to er next time Jaffer would not talk to me but instead yelled to nurse to tell me to go to a gastrologist. He did not contact me when I ended up in the hospital even though he knew I was there. that was in summer of 2014 and I still have problems
