Disinterested, doesn't review medical records, difficult to impossible to get specialist referrals, does not include patient in decision making. Worst experience ever.
The only problem I have with her and her office is the wait time, but considering that she spends more time with you to understand your issues, I don't mind.
I take my mother to all her appointments with Dr. Lipschitz. She has been wonderful at taking the time to listen to my mothers needs. She is caring and professional. She is quick to authorize all my moms medical supplies and medications. The office staff is always friendly and caring.
Dr. Riffer has been my Dr. for about 15 year's. He is also almost the whole families and I've referred him to alot of my friends. He's an amazing & patient Dr, he's excellent about explaining the medical needs necessary to get a handle on whatever the problem is. He takes his time with each patient and he's prompt with all of the time's I've had an appointment. The staff is efficient and friendly but still professional. Dr. Riffer calls you and gives you the results of labs or xrays or any test.
Dr. Riffer is the best doctor I have ever had...bar none. He has been my doctor for over twenty years. The reason that I stay is that he has the rare characteristic of actually listening to his patients. He is kind, compassionate, and extremely up-to-date on knowledge that empacts his patients. Checking other avenues of care and referring to other specialists when necessary is easy for him. He is one of a kind.
My wife and I have been going to Dr Riffer for more than 25 years. He is the only physician that personally calls the results of tests and explains them so they can be understood. He is thorough and professional, friendly and authoritative. He make decisions that are in the best interest of his patients and spends the necessary time to explain why. I trust him without question and have sent many of my friends and they all feel the same.
Dr. Riffer is a great Doctor. He takes the time to talk to you and find out what your problems are. Then he gives you medicine(pills) to help you get back to feeling normal again. I have recommended him to many friends and they say that the Central Phoenix Medical Clinic is a great place to go to when you are sick. I understand, from other patients, that the 2 lady doctors there are just as good. That is why they are a busy office. But well worth the wait.
She is awesome. Dr. L. Listens, is very compassionate and understanding Staff also very nice and professional. Been extremely happy with Dr. L and everyone there. Very accommodating.
Dr. Riffer is a horrible physician. He would rather throw pills at a problem or accuse you of imagining symptoms rather than listening or doing anything productive. Coming here was a total waste of time and money, and I'm still sick.
