After waiting months to see Dr. Lifton, I received a voice mail late on a Friday to confirm my Monday appointment. I was traveling that day and was on and off of flights. When I got the voice mail, Dr. Lifton's office was closed. I called his office first thing Monday morning to confirm and was told that they had cancelled my appointment and already filled it. They offered to "try" and reschedule if I wanted. I said no. This was my first experience with Dr. Lifton and I'm not feeling they care.

I had a very positive experience with Dr Liftons practice. Sherrie was a great technician. Dr Lifton provided a thorough explanation of condition and a remedial plan to correct issues

Before seeing Dr. Lifton my migraines left me in bed unable to have any quality of life. I am about 50% better and can function. I still have a long way to go as nothing is fixed overnight when you have suffered for 20 years. I would highly recommend him. He also saw my mother and was quick to diagnose her and ordered all the appropriate tests. His staff is always helpful and nice. Like someone else said he is a deep thinker

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!
