About Me

Care Philosophy

I will provide comprehensive care integrating a thorough medical workup, psychotherapy and medication treatments. I offer multiple treatment regimens and individual treatment plans, informed by both our understandings of the presenting symptoms and your essential input.

Patient Testimonials

"I have been suffering from major depression, anxiety, PTSD and insomnia for years. I also have recently developed a seizure condition. I had been on countless medications to combat these conditions and seen multiple medical professionals to no avail. Dr. Rifai and his extremely professional and kind staff including Amy Makl and Nancy Taylor have all used innovative treatments and cutting edge testing to help identify certain genetic markers which led to the best medication combination I have been on and suggested state the art, recently developed treatments. I have also been in an outpatient facility for four months and have never had these types of positive results. They are so amazingly accommodating, knowledgeable and patient. I cannot say enough good things about all of them."
