Dr Rhim´s high standard of care and efficiency is very much appreciated.
Dr. Rhim is always great to deal with.
Dr. Rhim was courteous, prompt, efficient and thorough. I will be back for my next skin check in 2-3 years.
dr. Rhim is the reason I drive to VM from Kent for dermatology. my carpool buddy (husband) is equally impressed.
he answered my questions and resolved what I came in for
Did not like his personality/approach, was sarcastic and felt like he took my concerns lightly.
This was a follow-up check by Dr. Rhim, who had previously removed a growth on the top of my head. At this meeting, he was very professional, punctual and friendly. He checked the skin surfaces of my body very carefully, explaining what he saw. He was great!!!
I always feel well cared for and that I am getting the best medical advice and treatment.
I have recommended Dr. Rhim to others. He is very good.
Dr Rhim always makes sure he is clear. He listens to all concerns.
I have recommended this doctor to all my family and friends - some are now patients of his.
#9. Excellent dr.
I really appreciate Dr. Rhim - he is an outstanding dermatologist and medical professional - but also a very warm and engaging person. Thank you Dr.!
Dr. Rhim is incredibly thorough. He is considerate and detail oriented.
Excellent all the way. (If I ever have problems, I´ll say so.)
I was worried because it was the first time I was seeing him, but I didn´t have to worry. He listened and heard my concerns. He answered all my questions. By the end of my visit, I felt I could trust him with my dermatology care.
Exceptional. I was very happy.
I have recommended 3 friends who also like Dr. Rhim very well.
Dr Rihm is always courteous and explains things completely and well.
Both the doctor & nurse were/are wonderful. Very sharp very polite she is totally efficient. Believe me I have no problem giving a lousy rating if needed.
Always friendly and professional.
Edward is a great Dr.
Dr. Rhim is excellent on all levels.
I have seen Dr Rhim for several years now and have great trust in his abilities so I have given his name out often! He is easy to talk to, he listens to concerns, he does great surgeries...I just always feel confident that he will do his best for me and that is peace of mind!!
apologized frequently about misunderstanding from scheduling desk. Neither took picture of lesion nor measured it before sending me to another physician
I have no much (bad) experience they were good and better.
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. Rhim is exceptionally polite.
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
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.
satisfactory office visit!
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.
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.
Excellent care provider
Doctor did a good job of looking out for my best interest.
Dr. Rhim is a professional in whom I have high confidence.
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!
