I have never met anyone or experienced such poor bedside manner and lack of compassion in any human being like I and my family have with Joshua Rifkind. And no less someone who studied oncology and is dealing with people that are scared of what's happening to them, possibly having an illness that could be the end of their lives. I can see why he was terminated from Valley Hospital New Jersey! Patience, positivity and compassion goes a long way with cancer patients!

Being deaf, Dr. Rifkind was so nice and very patient with me explaining in depth what is going on with my health. One time a sign language interpreter didn't show up, we ended up using a dry board writing notes. I appreciate that very much.

Dr Rifkind is the best. He is a excellent physician, he knows how to talk to patient gives great advise. I saw him at Valley and it is Valleys loss that he is not at valley anymore. I had to switch due to health insurance. Not a happy camper. I was so happy when the insurance allowed me to see Dr. Rifkind again. Then he left Valley. I wish him all the best where ever he works
