My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

MDVIP has helped me to practice medicine in a way that is truly patient focused. I know my patients well.  I am able to spend quality time with them. I am better in proactively treating my patients’ current health issues, as well as keeping their long-term health in mind. MDVIP allows me to combine my years of clinical experience, evidence-based medicine, and the goals and preferences of the patient to develop an individualized treatment plan.  

I have had the pleasure of being in private practice since 2004. For many years, I enjoyed taking care of patients in a setting which allowed me a generous schedule and the freedom to get to know individuals based on their independent health concerns and goals very well. However, just before partnering with MDVIP, it did become increasingly difficult to share that valuable attentive time and to provide personalized care to each patient. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to once again form and nurture close relationships with my patients. 

I am board certified in family medicine and board certified in osteopathic manipulative medicine, a set of hands-on techniques used to help diagnose, treat and prevent injury of the musculoskeletal system. I am actively studying functional medicine and plan to pursue my certification in functional medicine (a discipline in which you treat the underlying causes of disease rather than treating the symptoms).  I am proficient in evaluation, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and obesity; as well as being well-versed in the prevention and early detection of dementia and cancer.

Although I try to keep patients out of the hospital, I am affiliated with Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. I frequently serve the Maine communities of Falmouth, Cumberland, Yarmouth, South Portland, Scarborough, Gorham, Biddeford and Saco. However, I am humbled to have patients traveling from places as far as New Hampshire and Bangor to see me.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Hanafy

from Deb in ME March 18, 2020 for Rasha Hanafy, DO

There is not a certain experience to describe Dr. Rasha Hanafy. Everything she does is done with such care, honesty, concern, compassion, and professionalism towards her patients. She is very easy to talk to about any situation. I always feel safe and at ease like I'm talking with a very good friend. There have been a couple of times when she has called me herself to make sure I was ok… See more

Dr Hanafy was available to respond to me while I was oversees. I never have to wait more than a few hours for an appt. The MDVIP designation allows her to fully service her patients. I am so glad she decided to become an MDVIP physician. I feel I have her with me still years away from retirement, as I continue to adventure around the world!

from Paula March 22, 2019 for Rasha Hanafy, DO

I give Dr. Hanafy a 5 star rating! She was my Dr. prior to joining MDVIP and I couldnt ask for a more educated, resourceful, compassionate doctor. It is clear that she loves what she does and cares a great deal about helping her clients. MDVIP has been great thus far and definitely allows Dr. Hanafy to do what she does best, and that is take excellent care of her patients.

from Theresa February 18, 2019 for Rasha Hanafy, DO

I switched to Dr. Hanafy after my MDVIP doctor retired and recommended her to take over my care. I have only met with her a few times, and have been very impressed. One of the things that stands out for me is that she makes videos showing her patients how to correctly perform the exercises she prescribes. I have been to numerous doctors and physical therapists over the years, and she is the… See more
