Dr. Lifton is a rare doctor who both listens and thinks deeply. He is thorough, curious, empathetic,and open to considering new non-mainstream but scientific solutions. I've seen MANY doctors for my condition over 26 years, he provided the first hypothesis that matches all the data. If you see him, you are fortunate. It can be hard to navigate the appointment-setting process, but persevere. Well worth the wait!
