I don´t like to be or feel rushed in an appointment and my concerns should be honored and sometimes I feel like he isn´t lisenting or that he is being rushed through his appointments and not allowing us patients to feel like we matter and our concernes matter, and he always acts like he doesn´t have time to listen to the patients concerns.
Dr. Rhim is one of the most through Dermatologists I have encountered. He has shown to take exceptional care of me. I regularly send others looking for a good Dermatologist to him.
Dr. Rhem is a caring doctor and answered all my questions.
Both the physician and his assistant were very competent and professional; provided information and answered all questions in understandable language.
Dr Rhim is discreet, knowledgeable and caring.
I recommend Dr. Rhim to all of my friends in search of an excellent dermatologist.
Full confidence in the treating doctor
Dr. Rhim is very respectful and courteous. He takes time to explain his diagnosis, the treatment and address my concerns.
Dr. Rhim was courteous, thorough & professional. I´d definitely recommend him.
Dr Rhim clearly explains the risks and benefits of a procedure, and lets the patient make an informed decision.
Dr Rhimm is highly professional and has a great bedside manner.
Provider was nice, but not very engaging -
Dr. Rhim is a great doctor. One of the best.
I have known Dr. Rhim for a few years. Until my mother went into Hospice, I brought her into Dr. Rhim for Dermatology. Why? Because I recommend his skills. He identified the irregular spot on my forehead I was worried about as soon as he saw men. After looking through magnifying lens Dr. Rhim showed me examples and literature about what level of irregular cells they could be, precancerous or cancerous. Very clear and easy to understand.
Dr. Rhim is great. I really like his style and feel confident in his approach.
Personable & caring.
Very good experience.
not super friendly, I always feel as though he has patients with more pressing diagnoses than mine.
love the Doctor and he was very patient and mind to me.
Dr. Rhim is an outstanding physician. He came highly recommended by another patient, and all the superlatives she used to describe Dr. Rhim and his staff ring true.
He discovered a tiny cancer on my leg, one that I had failed to notice. He also spotted a pre-cancerous lesion on my lip, one my previous dermatologist had said was a bump due to rosacea.
high quality, timely care delivered by a concerned and competent dermatologist
Dr. Rhim has a very nice interactive manner. He is attentive and alert. explanations were clear and percise. He also has a quick sense of humor which I enjoyed.
Dr. took time to educate my wife on recognizing areas of concern. I greatly appreciated that extra attention to my health
satisfactory office visit!
I am so happy with Dr. Rhim, his patience, my feelings and concerns, and his aim to please, and points out what to expect. I feel very confident with Dr. Rhim.
Again, I came on wrong day, they worked me in and did a biopsy. I so appreciated being seen as I live a long way from this site. But I have docs I have seen off and on for years and will continue.
Dr. Rhim is a very competent and friendly provider. I have full confidence in his recommendations.
Dr. Rhim explained very clearly the issues I was seeing him for. I am totally comfortable with his judgment. I would certainly recommend him to others.
It seemed like the doctor was running behind schedule. In the past I have always been escorted into a room by a nurse who gave me a gown and told me to undress and put it on. This time the doctor came out to get me and started by having me take my shirt off. He then looked at most of my body but never at my feet. I felt like he was very rushed and did not do a thorough exam.
After waiting so long for an appointment my provider only spent about 5-10 minutes with me and didn´t even examine my skin. I felt that he was in a rush and any additional questions I had or time I took would have been inconvenient.
He seemed rushed, wanted to get out and to whatever was next. Asked me what to do with certain issue without providing positives/negatives of different options.
My doctor was very good at explaining, me asking questions.
I always feel confident that Dr. Rhim is seeing and treating my skin concerns and communicating clearly.
Excellent care provider
I have ABSOLUTE confidence in Dr. Rhim. My sister-in-law and partner have all seen him upon my recommendation. He is thorough and professional and conducts himself w/extreme decorum while also providing a caring and confident "bedside" manner.
Dr. Rhim is a professional in whom I have high confidence.
Doctor did a good job of looking out for my best interest.
Dr. Rhim and his nurses are excellent. Our family are all patients of his.
I have already answered some of these questions. I go to Virginia mason because I like the care and don´t need to be spending this much time on redundant questions.
Visit was very short, little was _____ - perfunctory.
Always a friendly and professional experience.
Dr Rhimm is first-rate!
Dr. Rhim could not solve my problem and referred me to another doctor.
It was a busy day, everyone seemed pretty rushed.
I realize that care providers have limited time with each patient. The time spent Talking with patient and listening is important. Please allow time for the doctor to interact with patients.
biopsy techniques were appropriate
The doctor seemed very rushed, however it may be because they got me in the same day and they squeezed me in, so I certainly appreciated being seen right away and that counterbalanced the shortness of the visit. The doctor that I had previous experience with is no longer at VM, so this is a comparison to the previous visit I had with another doctor.
Physician should read file and be aware of patient´s history and treatment before meeting patient. Don´t read file while I wait for you to figure things out.
Dr. Rhim is very fine doctors.
Dr. Rhim is a top-notch dermatologist and I always am reassured after an appt. with him.
I´ve always had confidence in Dr. Rhim.
Dr. Rhim is exc. Always spends tie with me. Never feel rushed.
Always very good.
