Meet Our Team


Debbie Fajans, CRNA

Debbie is the owner and founder of Rapid Recovery. She is a Nurse Anesthetist in Reno and Northern California providing anesthesia in hospitals and private practice locations. She has 10 years in the medical field and degrees from UC San Diego, Columbia University and Samuel Merritt University. As an anesthesia provider, she is responsible for hydration and balancing electrolytes, while also decreasing pain and nausea in patients. While she is passionate about her anesthesia work, she is also looking towards preventative treatments to help make people feel better and avoid expensive emergency room visits. From her past work with cancer patients, and burn victims, she has learned how important your daily heath and happiness is. She wants to help people to live with more vitality and energy so that they can get the most out of each and every day.



Ephraim is the Medical Director for California Rapid Recovery Hydration Solutions. He is originally from Syracuse, New York and graduated medical school from Columbia University in 2010. He went on to complete his residency in Orthopedic Surgery in San Francisco and a fellowship in Sports Medicine at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte. During his training he cofounded Action Sports Orthopedics, an organization devoted to injury prevention and training strategies for athletes. It was during that time he developed an interest in IV hydration therapies as a tool for increasing performance and decreasing recovery time. He owns and operates Urgently Ortho, the first Orthopedic Urgent Care in San Francisco. When he is not working, he can be hard to find as he is likely traveling the world somewhere.


Tiffany Faulkner

Tiffany is the Operations Manager and “Chief Financial Guru” for Rapid Recovery.  Originally from the Silicon Valley area, Tiffany recently relocated to the Reno area and is excited to help bring IV hydration services to Northern Nevada. She believes in finding something you can be passionate about whether it’s great food and exceptional wine, fitness and wine, home remodeling and wine or just relaxing with an excellent book (and wine, of course). She joined the Rapid Recovery team because she believes your day to day health greatly impacts your over-all happiness and wants to help people become the absolute best versions of themselves!
