Outstanding doctor.
  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
Dr. Rhim was pretty brief with me and made me feel rushed. I was late for my appointment which was my fault, but I still didn't like feeling rushed when I came to him for something I was concerned about.
  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
he was not listening at all and was hostile to this transgender female.
  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
Dr. Rhim is meh. Not the warmest doctor, not the best bedside manner. I feel like he just wants to finish with me and get on to the next patient.

A superior session.

Excellent experience with a doctor new to me

  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
*Dr. Rhim was very rude to me a year ago - made fun of me about my concern about my problem through his words & manner. This time, I wanted to switch to another doctor (for similar problem) but was told it would be 3 month wait. This, I decided to take an appointment with him. It turned out to be cancer. When he told me, instead of hanging the brochure to me he plopped it down on the chair (out of reach). I find his manner not OK. He may be a... but I plan o switch to another.

Dr. Rhim takes time to explain his findings during the body scan and answer any questions I may have. I have total confidence in his care.
  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
I've gone to Dr Rhim for years and appreciate him as my provider. I trust him to have my best interest at heart. He always has.

5 star provider.
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
Doctor said his pref is to not do certain procedures and to go see my old doctor. Thats odd.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2019
The provider didn't spend much time with me (about 10 minutes) but I basically got my questions answered. However, in reading his visit summary in my Cerner, he says he talked about things with me on this visit that he did NOT talk to me about, but has talked about in previous visits. I felt he was rushed at this visit.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2019
He addressed my issue but seemed to do so in a hurried manner and I felt as if I was inconveniencing him

efficient, kind
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2019
Dr. Rhim is fantastic. Very personable and professional, and he was really great about including my 14 year old daughter in the appointment (educating her about what he was doing and about what features characterize an abnormal mole). I really appreciate his time and thoroughness... I have seen other Dermatologists where the appointment feels very rushed (and they are always running behind)... but that was not the case with Dr. Rhim (on time and didn't feel rushed). Thank you for great provider service!

Dr. Rhym is professional, competent, caring, and friendly. He has been my dermatologist for about 10 years.

*Dr. Rhim is fabulous! I have referred many new clients to him. I love that he uses a "scribe" rather than looking @ his computer ALL the time during our visit. Extremely courteous doctor & seems very caring! Good eye contact!

the Dr does a wonderful job explaining the pros and cons of taking medications.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
I have complete confidence in Dr. Rhim, which is why I endure the drive into Seattle to see him. He always offers his opinion along with well-explained options.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
I had no concerns with Dr. Rhim, however I was very uncomfortable with having a male transcriber in the room with me while Dr. Rhim performed my exam. I'm not sure I will return based on this experience. Dr. Rhim is an M.D. and as such I am very comfortable with him examining my body, but the transcriber was a male and is NOT an M.D. and should not be present when a female is being examined. It felt like a total invasion of privacy.
