in Aurora, CO |
I was referred to Dr. Rifkin in the summer of 2015 when I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. He took immediate action upon his first examination, commencing appropriate chemo treatments. His professionalism, his upbeat attitude and the attention to important details gave my wife and I great comfort and confidence. His staff, particularly his medical assistant Megan, is top-notch. I credit their excellence with saving my life.

I have referred several people to Dr. Rifkin over the past 24 years. He is an amazing diagnostician and terrific physician. He is, in my opinion and that of several physicians with whom I have spoken, "brilliant". He understands that quality of life is very important and works to ensure that patients get the referrals needed to reach those goals in addition to achieving their treatment goals.
in Castle Rock, CO |
Excellent doctor who gets excited with every success his patients experience. Provides sound advice and always looks for new ways to improve quality of life. His nurse and physician assistant Megan is the best! Very smart, kind, and honest!
He is really honest but comforting at the same time.
