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.

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.

  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
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.
