We had just bought our dream house. I had two beautiful boys and a wonderful husband. I had a great job. And I remember lying in bed thinking, what do I have to get up for? What do I have to live for? And that scared me to my core. And I knew that wasn’t me.

You may not look sick. You may be able to get through your day. But Lyme patients are incredibly sick. This is a devastating disease. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.

She (Dr. Rifai) has stood by me through horrible times when I didn’t think I could pull through and she has reminded me and encouraged me to rise above this awful illness (Lyme disease) and never let it get in the way of attaining my dreams. I don’t know where I would be without her.  

E. S.


 I would lie in bed at night, and say to my husband, it’s okay if I die tonight, because it’s okay. Anything’s got to be better than living like this.

And I was also worried because, and even terrified, because none of the doctors around me had any clue, or even tried to figure out what was going on. And I think had it not been for Rania, I feel that she saved my life. 

S. H.


I have Dr. Rifai to thank for my health and well- being. Dr. Rifai gives quality of care that should be the standard for all doctors. She is kind, attentive and has a pleasant and caring team of professionals on her staff. I can’t thank her enough.

When I look back and think where I was that day in July of 2013 when I walked through her door and where I am now, I am “baffled”. Baffled that since treatment I no longer have a positive ANA, my hair has stopped falling out in clumps, I no longer feel off balance, the burning sensation from head to toe is gone. Although there will be setbacks and I know there is a possibility I will never be exactly the same, I know where I was and where I am now and I know I will get there with my determination and Dr. Rifai’s motivation.
