Hi Francisco -
This is not a "malpractice" situation, but it may be a violation of your rights under the HIPAA medical privacy regulations and possibly under the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act.
I hope that by now this matter is resolved with the clinic to your satisfaction. That's a good place to start.
If not, you may need to add more here so we are clear what your current situation and question is. Good luck.
