“I am alive today because of this doctor! She gave me my life back and I thank her from the bottom of my heart. Also I can not say enough for her staff. They are warm and caring just like her.”From an unsolicited review by M. Schwarz
Dr. Rania Rifai
Welcome to the website of Dr. Rania Rifai ( formerly, Rifai-Loewenberg), an internist who has been providing quality healthcare services for over 20 years from her privately owned medical practice located in Katonah, New York. Long known for her work in internal and adolescent medicine, she specializes in the treatment of Lyme disease and its associated co-infections. Dr. Rifai’s personal struggles with and treatment of her own Lyme disease is the subject of her soon-to-be-published book, My Journey with Lyme.
Dr. Rifai is widely recognized and respected by both her peers and her patients for her unwavering dedication to practice medicine pursuant to the sacred principles of the Hippocratic Oath. A member in good standing with both the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians, Dr. Rifai has achieved many honors based on her accomplishments in the field of internal medicine. She is proud of her long affiliation with Northern Westchester Hospital, which honored her in 2012 with the Award for 20 Years of Excellence in Medicine. The International Association of Healthcare Professionals has cited her professional excellence in their publication, The Leading Physicians of the World. Dr. Rifai’s work with Lyme disease patients is highlighted in a forthcoming video directed by a national Emmy Award-winning documentary director.
“I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science,” reads one of the covenants that Dr. Rifai swore to uphold, “and that warmth, sympathy and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”
Art. Science. Warmth. Sympathy. Understanding. These words are the bedrock of Dr. Rifai’s practice and inform every facet of her and her entire staff’s interactions with her patients. We invite you to explore the numerous unsolicited and uncompensated online reviews and letters in the Patient Stories section of this website to determine for yourself how well Dr. Rifai and her entire staff have embraced and fulfilled this covenant.
