DR Rackoff made me feel very at ease about a more serious kind of arthritis I did not realize I had. She set me up with a gastroenterologist the very next day and I finally think I will get better now with the right diagnosis

I have seen dr. 2 times since 2014, I went to her, because her experience, but I was somewhat disappointed, the first visit, I waited more 30 mins, short as my appointment less than 10 mins, but she spend more than 5 mins on the phone, I thought was rude, instead to find out my med background, she could not give me any suggestion, second time I went, I have to give her my suggestion to have some test done. Call back was not great experience, I sent email to her, never got reply... I am going to see her again; if this time is bad, I will change dr. ... too bad I really wish I find a good dr. ...

Excellent in every category. Very professional and the most effective Rheumatologist I experienced since developing certain pain over the past decade. I plan to follow Dr Rackoff wherever she goes. As far as any waiting time, it should be expected as great doctors will fit emergency appointments into their schedule. This benefits all patients eventually.

Dr Rackoff understands my hesitancy to take aggressive medication, but helped me also understand that controlling my arthritis early will help me be on less medication in the future. No other doctor took the time to explain that to me.

Dr Rackoff helped my elderly mother in such a gentle, caring way that my mom is now willing to take medicine for her osteoporosis AND her anxiety, and I will now make an appointment with Dr Rackoff.
