Dr. Rackoff is one of the best doctors that I have ever seen. She is smart, caring and responsive. She is truly a patients doctor. She is available outside of office hours, spends time with her patients and explains things clearly. Dr. Rackoff listens carefully, asks the right questions and really thinks about the patients conditions. I have recommended her to countless friends and family members and will continue to do so.

Excellent experience and very knowledgeable !
in Congers, NY |
Dr. Paula Rackoff simply is amazing. She listened to me about my medical problems and was very caring and sympathetic to what I am going through. Even though I went over my time for my appointment she did not rush me and took the time to go over my options for care. I would HIGHLY recommend her for a man or women. She is a great person and doctor.

The office itself is clean and nice, but Dr. Rackoff is absolutely horrible. Dr. Rackoff is probably the worst doctor I've ever seen in my life. I actually left my appointment crying because she was so rude to me, barely gave me five minutes of her time, and talked down to me. She didn't listen to anything I had to say and didn't take me seriously at all. Do yourself a favor and find a different doctor.
in NYC |
Dr Rackoff was caring, patient, and incredibly thorough. I was worried about having a more serious autoimmune disorder and she was very reassuring
in New York, NY |
Dr. Rackoff is professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I could not recommend her more highly.
