Hope for the stage IV cancer patient
I was introduced to Dr Rifkin by my primary oncologist who had successfully treated my stage I diffuse large B-cell lymphoma for 8 years. In 1999 the cancer returned and was staged as IV with a poor prognosis. Dr Rifkin jumped in and treated the cancer aggressively including successful myeloablative therapy and an allogenic peripheral stem cell transplant! Dr Rifkin saved my life and here I am almost 22 years later living a full life! May God continue to bless you Dr Rifkin as he has blessed me and my family through your incredible compassion and excellent medical care!!

No His interpersonal skills were poor. He seemed annoyed and impatient with our questions regarding the disease process and it’s treatment. Our appointment time with him was often less than 10 minutes. We appreciated his support staff.
