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.

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.

November 2016
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.

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
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.
May 2016

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

Always a friendly and professional experience.
