Ratings for Dr. Paula Rackoff
Dr. Rackoff not only illustrated incredible knowledge and and was able to diagnose my illness, I have to say I've never met a doctor with so much empathy and kindness. It was clear she had other patients to see that day but she was patient, engaged and attentive. I wish all doctors would follow her lead.
Dr. Rackoff is truly one of the very few physicians I have seen, after seeing over dozens of doctors, who takes the time to truly review thoroughly all your issues, prior test results and clinical symptoms. She contacts other physicians you have seen as well as her colleagues (if appropriate) to gather all the information she needs to ensure you feel completely secure and taken care of clinically and personally. She cares beyond just "the numbers" - she cares about your quality of life. Dr. Rackoff is truly unique and puts the puzzle pieces together to ensure you receive the highest quality of care possible!
I have been seeing Dr. Rackoff every 8 wks since April 2013. It is no exaggeration to say that she gave me my life back. I'd been very ill for nearly 3 yrs, had seen more than two dozen specialists and Dr Rackoff was the only one able to diagnose and treat me. She brings to her work a keen intelligence, tremendous expertise, and a level of caring and compassion that is often hard to find in the medical world ; what's more, she never gives up--if something doesn't work, she is always willing to focus on another treatment/approach. I feel immensely fortunate to be her patient and to know that whatever medical issue might arise (and mine are quite complex), Dr. Rackoff is in my corner and has always has my well being in mind.
Last summer I developed a pain in my left elbow and my left wrist, so much so that pulling open my shirt bureau drawer was painful. I hoped it would go away, but it didn't. Dr. Rackoff looked at it and after asking a series of questions, we figured out that I developed tendonitis by carrying around more in my briefcase starting a few months before the summer (or maybe because I'm getting older and just can't carry what I use to). I'm without pain now. I'm writing this, because Dr. Rackoff didn't want to prescribe an anti-inflamment or anything else that wasn't needed. She really thought through the problem. Thank you, Dr. Rackoff.
