Dr. Rifkin is a lovely person. My glucose numbers have not been great, and I was worried I would be judged. But I was not judged. Dr. Rifkin approached my health as a team player; she gave me reasonable goals and certainly was 100% supportive. Her staff is equally kind and lovely and so respectful. I would and will whole-heartedly refer family and friends to Dr. Rifkin. I will also be thanking my Primary Care doctor for the suggestion that I see Dr. Rifkin.
in Parker, co |
Don't hope that get an appointment anytime soon. Even as an existing patient having a chronic urgent worsening of condition she wouldn't see us again for 2 months when alerted of a major issue because she's overburdened with patient volume. Disappointimg.
in Englewood, CO |
Very helpful. Adjusted my insulin pump the last 2 visits. A1C test now 6.7%. Rare low readings.
in Denver, CO |
Clear explanations from Doctor and very nice MAs.
in Castle Rock, CO |
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid 3 years ago. Dr. Rifkin is the best and most knowledgeable specialist that I have been to. She listens to your concerns and respects the patient. Only problem is it takes forever to finally schedule an appointment and when I scheduled my first appointment with her last year it wasn't for 2 months. So make sure you know it will take a while to actually see her. But that doesn't even effect my view on her. She and her staff are very nice and easy to talk to.

What a wonderful office and staff. From the front reception, MA, to Dr. Rifkin herself! Kind, courteous, and very professional. Camila, the MA is extremely sweet and very good bed-side manner! Awesome group - you should be proud of your staff!!
in Broomfield, CO |
The office staff was very professional & friendly. Dr. Rifkin is extremely knowledgeable & approachable. Great guidance on diabetic knowledge.
in Edwards, CO |
Drove down from Edwards to see Dr. Rifkin because there are no Endos up here. Well worth the drive and the wait to see her. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and had a lot of questions. She is very nice and spent a lot of time explaining Hashimoto's to me. Much better information from here than what I found on the internet. Extremely nice office staff.
in Centennial CO |
Dr Rifkin is fantastic. She listens, asks great questions, is caring and genuinely concerned about me and my health. This doctor has made a huge impact on the quality of my health. Dr Rifkin discussed options with me and then followed thru with me on every step. I have 100% trust and confidence in her expertise and pfrofessionalism, and I highly recommend her!
in Lakewood, CO |
I highly recommend this practice & had a great experience!
in Centennial, CO |
Dr. Rifkin is the best! I was referred to her a few years back by a friend, when I had just moved to Colorado. She is always very attentive, professional, and friendly. Great Doctor!
in Larkspur, CO |
I have had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Rifkin's for several years. Dr. Rifkin has always addressed my medical needs with honesty and solutions. She delivers the truth and never tells me what she thinks I want to hear. Her integrity and honesty is one of the reasons I continue to seek her advice for my medical concerns. Her diagnosis and treatment options have always improved my medical condition. I highly recommend Dr. Rifkin. Her commitment to her clients wellbeing is refreshing.
in Castle Rock, CO |
she really understood how my health issues were affecting my family and worked with all of us together - greatly appreciated! Very responsive to questions.
in Castle Rock, CO |
Great doctor, knows her stuff, but listened to me also. Staff was wonderful.
in Centennial, CO |
Very caring doctor and great staff. Spent over 45 minutes with my mother and explained everything to us. I am so relieved.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Rifkin was very nice, but did not come to my appointment with an open mind and did not listen to my concerns. She had already determined before I even arrived, that my symptoms were not valid. Instead she focused on educating me about misinformation on the internet. A complete waste of my time and I would never put my health in her hands. My primary doctor is insisting I find an endo who will listen with an open mind and help me. I can scratch Dr. Rifkin off that list, and you should too!
