“I began working with the PrimeHealth family this year and have been incredibly impressed with the care I’ve received. From the start, my goal was health optimization through a holistic and integrative perspective – I wanted to work with someone who was interested in the “big picture”, was open to – and perhaps preferred – alternative therapies (naturopathic or otherwise), but who also believed and subscribed to some forms of western medicine if and when appropriate. In my mind, that was an MD who specialized in integrative and functional care, which is exactly what I found at PrimeHealth. While I don’t necessarily feel like I’ve ever received “sub-par” care from other medical professionals, the approach that Dr. R takes is distinct. One of compassion and empathy, atop a foundation of fierce intelligence, acute understanding of medicine and the human body, emergent thinking and absolute desire to help her patients. She takes the approach that “if somebody is hitting you in the head with a hammer, let’s try to figure out why they are hitting you in the head with a hammer and get them to stop hitting you in the head with a hammer….instead of giving you Advil for the headache, or a helmet to blunt the strike”. Stated like this, it seems simple and obvious but perhaps unsurprisingly that had not been my experience prior to PrimeHealth. I’ve also had the distinct pleasure of working with Luke, Janie and Katie in various capacities, without whom PrimeHealth would not be the fluid and comprehensive facility that it is. I’m sure Dr. R would be the first to acknowledge the vital roles each play in supporting their patient’s overall experience and health. Each individually, and collectively, have been communicative, accommodating and supportive through this journey and I can’t recommend them enough.”

“I was a patient of Dr. Soyona Rafatjah in NYC from April 2017 through June 2018.  During that time, Dr. Rafatjah uncovered, identified and established a protocol for the many health issues I faced, issues that went misdiagnosed by so many medical doctors over the previous ten years!  She treated my autoimmune disorders (Hashimoto’s and CREST syndrome), heavy metal toxicity, multiple chemical sensitivity, hair loss, SIBO and other issues by searching for the root causes and setting guidelines for lifestyle and dietary changes along with the proper supplements to address these problems. I saw improvements within the first three months under her care and I am continuing on the path to wellness because of the foundation set by Dr. Rafatjah and her dedication to helping me!”

G Alhadeff

“Dr Rafatjah is the thoughtful experienced doctor I’d been looking for, who practices new—integrative and holistic—medicine with a thorough knowledge of allopathic medicine and has an astounding capacity for asking the right questions and searching out a successful and very individualized therapy. A gifted wonderful physician.”

Adriel Irons

“My experience with Dr. Rafatjah has been immensely rewarding. I have struggled with allergies and inflammation my entire life. When I first sought her care in November of 2016, I had already been through two sinus surgeries, several ENTs, and more primary care docs and specialists than I could count.  Dr. R’s holistic, total body approach and empathetic manner really guided me down a path to health that, while not always easy, has been lasting.”

Christina Rohm

“I knew something was “off” in my body and, after she ordered extensive blood work for me, she was able to diagnosis my rare condition. She then devised a creative and personalized treatment plan which improved and even reversed many of my symptoms. I feel so much better today because of the excellent care she provided.”

Nader Hashemian

“Dr. Rafatjah is clearly passionate about her work and about using data and cutting-edge clinical research to (1) find the root cause of her patients’ ailments, (2) apply evidence-based, lower risk holistic approaches to reach optimal outcomes, and (3) follow through with her patients to ensure a successful outcome and adjust course if/when necessary. If you’ve ever been to a doctor in this country, you’ll know that this level of care and attention is quite rare and something special”

Rose Marie Carter

“Dr. Rafatjah changed my life. My food and lifestyle looked like I was perfectly healthy, but I never felt well. She started with my gut health  and worked her way from there. Because she is so thorough she found my mercury levels were a high- since seeing her I have my energy back and my skin rashes stopped, I feel amazing. She also takes the time to really hear you, she truly cares about the whole person, mind, body and spirit. I will always be grateful that she came into my life.”

Karen J

“After a lifetime of stomach problems, visits to specialists and testing, I had become resigned to the fact that even though I was a physician with access to the best medical care, no one could help me.  Then I met Dr. Rafatjah and began to learn about functional medicine.  Within 4 months of implementing her program, my lifelong stomach issues disappeared.  In addition to that I have more energy, my brain fog has disappeared and I have lost 20 unwanted pounds.”

Betsy McLaughlin

“They have changed my life. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos hypothyroid 2.5 years ago. I was exhausted all the time, my hair was falling out, I was anxious, and I had gained a lot of weight. Needless to say I was very unhappy. My diagnosis was almost a relief, since I realized there was a reason behind all of my symptoms. I was referred to an endocrinologist who just kept pumping me with meds and didn’t once mention any sort of diet or lifestyle changes that I should be making. After almost a year and no relief in symptoms despite my thyroid labs being “normal” due to the medication, I decided to do some research on my own. I realized that I needed to find a functional doctor. I had no idea that in less than a year my life could change so much. Dr. Soyona introduced me to a healthy autoimmune diet that relieved so many of my symptoms. She ran in depth tests that nobody had bothered to run on me before and was able to address many nutrient deficiencies and other issues that I had no idea that I even had. My health coach, Katie, helped guide me through all of the changes I needed to make in order to ensure my success. After working with PrimeHealth, not only is my thyroid optimal, but my inflammation has decreased significantly and I have lost almost 40 pounds! I have so much more energy and life in me than I did last year. It is such a breath of fresh air to find a doctor who is genuinely invested in the well being of each of their patients. I couldn’t be more grateful for PrimeHealth and look forward to continuing my health journey with Dr. Soyona and Katie. I cannot recommend PrimeHealth enough!”

Renee Tavoularis

“I discovered Dr. Rafatjah after being frustrated and confused on how to manage my hashimoto’s thyroid disease, perimenopause, and adrenal fatigue – my previous endocrinologist, gynecologist, and general internist were not on the same page. Dr. Rafatjah took the time to look at me holistically, understand my unique factors, and treat me, the whole person. She attentively listened to how I was feeling, monitored by blood levels, varied my medication and supplements, accordingly, and helped me find the right nutrition and lifestyle practices to incorporate into my daily routine. We worked together to: optimize my nutrition, balance my hormones, and help me find sustainable nutrition and lifestyle solutions to manage my condition.”

Jamie Olivarez

“For the last 10 years I have felt off and was certain it was my thyroid but was always told it was borderline but not an issue. If only I had known what I know now! Dr. Rafatjah, Katie and Luke have been life changing and life giving to me the past 6 months. I entered as just diagnosed with Hashimotos and levels over 2,000 to now being almost in remission. I am no longer Vitamin D and B deficient. No longer have brain fog, joint pain, insomnia, imbalanced hormones, and so on and so on. I feel the best I have felt in almost 10 years. They make it so easy to understand what you need to do and you can feel confident in knowing the labs back up what they say and their approach. They are ready to answer any question I have and find ways to make the journey doable. Can’t say enough good things about the work they are doing. THANK YOU!!”

Evann Lepro

“After discovering thyroid imbalances during my annual bloodwork, a traditional endocrinologist put me on medications. My bloodwork numbers improved, but my symptoms did not. I felt like this doctor was looking at one body part in a vacuum. She (Dr. Rafatjah) worked with me on supplements, diet, and lifestyle habits. Over a few months, my symptoms improved significantly — enough that I was able to stop taking medication.“

Olivia Rodriquez

After many years on the pill (hormonal changes, weight gain and more), I chose to finally go au natural which wreaked havoc on my skin and body so this is what prompted me to go to PrimeHealth as I felt going down a holistic route is what’s best for my needs. This was 100% the best decision I’ve ever made! Not only did I find out my hormones were all over the place, I was able to get to the bottom of some food intolerances and irregularities due to a gut imbalance. Over the course of 6 months, I’ve seen an incredible difference in my body, skin, and my digestive system and this is only 6 months in! Crystal is not only lovely to work with but is incredibly passionate about what she does. She listens to her patients and thoroughly explains the reasonings behind her prescriptions. Katie is also just so wonderful to work with! She helped me cut sugar and dairy out of my diet to rebalance my gut which has helped me immensely. If you’re thinking about whether or not to start your health journey at PrimeHealth, I highly recommend starting with a consultation as you will see how you can get to the bottom of any mystery health issues and actually understand how a natural approach will heal your body.

“I can honestly say that Dr. Rafatjah’s approach has changed my life. Before starting with PrimeHealth, I was watching my own health decline, both physical and mental, and I couldn’t do anything to stop it. I lived in the most beautiful state in America and I barely left the house. Thanks to Dr. Rafatjah and PrimeHealth, everything has changed for the better, and changed surprisingly quickly. With her amazing bed side manner and rigorous medical testing (tests my other doctors haven’t even heard off), Dr. Rafatjah worked with me to find the root cause of my health issues, namely my depression and weight gain, and gave me detailed guidance to address them. Who knew inflammation was a silent killer? Through her help the change was night and day. I now have the motivation (and energy) to go to the gym and get out for a hikes with friends. I look at myself in the mirror now and I like what I see, which is all thanks to Dr. Rafatjah and the team at PrimeHealth.

Jules Hunt

Dr. Rafatjah is an incredible and brilliant doctor. I couldn’t recommend her enough. She helped me get to the bottom of my chronic gut issues once and for all, and I feel like a new person. Thanks to Dr. Rafatjah, I mustered up the courage to finally quit hormonal birth control, which was hindering my health more than I realized. I also discovered my food allergies and sensitivities with her help. I’m on a new journey with my health and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Soyona was my functional health doctor in NYC for two years. She helped me overcome a digestion issue, which had been plaguing me for years, through diet and supplements, allowing me to avoid heavy duty medications. I found her to be both curious and innovative in her approach to treating me. I highly recommend her.
