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.

June 2017

January 2017
Dr. Rhim is a great doctor. One of the best.

January 2017
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.

January 2017
Dr. Rhim is great. I really like his style and feel confident in his approach.

not super friendly, I always feel as though he has patients with more pressing diagnoses than mine.

November 2016
love the Doctor and he was very patient and mind to me.

November 2016
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.

November 2016
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.

October 2016
high quality, timely care delivered by a concerned and competent dermatologist

October 2016
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.

September 2016
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.

September 2016
Dr. Rhim is a very competent and friendly provider. I have full confidence in his recommendations.

September 2016
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.

August 2016
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.

August 2016
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.

July 2016
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.

June 2016
My doctor was very good at explaining, me asking questions.

June 2016
I always feel confident that Dr. Rhim is seeing and treating my skin concerns and communicating clearly.

May 2016
Excellent care provider

Dr. Rhim and his nurses are excellent. Our family are all patients of his.

February 2016
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.

January 2016
Visit was very short, little was _____ - perfunctory.

January 2016
Always a friendly and professional experience.

Dr Rhimm is first-rate!

December 2015
Dr. Rhim could not solve my problem and referred me to another doctor.

November 2015
It was a busy day, everyone seemed pretty rushed.

November 2015
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.

November 2015
biopsy techniques were appropriate

November 2015
Great.

October 2015
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.

October 2015
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.
