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!

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.

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.

Dr. Rhim is friendly, quick but thorough. He answers all questions.

Dr. Rhim, and staff went above and beyond....my appt. was just my annual skin check...but he removed a piece of glass from my foot, that I did not know was in "there" and was causing me excrutiating pain.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
Very thorough
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I will probably have a better idea on whether to recommend him when I do actually receive the sclerotherapy. He was nice, professional and considerate and with the exam explained what was needed and what he can do.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rhim for many years and am so thankful for him!

I am very fortunate to have long term relationships with my care providers at VMMC. Was the same for my Mother. VM found DMII in my paternal grandmother in 1950 when she had regular check up to join a club. My brother was born VM in 1948. For awhile we may have been seen elsewhere, but returned in 1985 with my father's cancer. Truly compared to what my friends go through with changing doctors at Kaiser Permanente, I am fortunate to have this long term relationship with Virginia Mason. I appreciate my return appointments with Dr. Rhim. Supportive.

I am a 70 year old woman living alone, expected to clean and dress a biopsy site in a place I could not see. No concern was shown about my ability to perform post-biopsy care. I was sent home without pain indications for pain management, which was considerable within the following 36 hours. I had a mild vaso-vagal reaction post-biopsy which did not allow me to fully comprehend instructions, simply to put all my concentration on staying upright and aware. Staff never appeared concerned about how I was feeling post-procedure. Seems like they need a little training on management of elderly patients showing up alone to appointments.

Dr Rhimm is highlyy professional and caring
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
The care provider left me with no unanswered questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
I felt rushed. I missed a few questions. I think a new patient questionare listing their concerns would help. As I assumed Id have a bit more time and did not have my thoughts fully gathered and he tried to assist me in organizing my questions to speed it up so he could answe them and mobe onto the next patient. Felt a bit assembly line. Dont get me wrong very good bed side manner but rushed.

The best thing I like about Doctor Rhim is that he talk to me, not at me. His care is exceptional.

what's to say? Dr. Rhim is a great Doctor. knowledgeable, on point, and clear in his Dx/Rx

Dr. Rhim rocks, he has a great sense of humor, he listens to you, he explains what he is going to do so you understand what is happening. He (or his NP) explains what to do after a procedure.
