Review of Dr. Rimkus


I saw Dr. Rimkus for a complicated hernia situation. His "bedside manner" is one of the very best I've ever experienced. And that's just the icing on the cake. On the day of surgery, my procedure was delayed. Dr. Rimkus personally came to see me to let me know why there was a slight delay, even though the nursing staff had already informed me. Surgery went very well, as did my follow up. He and his staff are very efficient. Lots of smiles and a wonderful atmosphere, but not at the risk of wasting a patient's valuable time. I don't write a lot of glowing recommendations, but this one is well earned. Thanks for taking care of me Dr. Rimkus. You're very appreciated!

Review of Dr. Sasser


The good part: I got an appointment fairly quickly and the vascular surgery resulted in an 80% improvement in my leg and a better quality of life as he promised. The bad part: after fasting for 12 hours before my surgery he kept me waiting for an additional 4 hours beyond the scheduled surgery time because he had errands & he neglected to check on me before I was discharged. He told me that I would recover in a week but didn't mention that my severed sephranous vein would take months to heal.

Review of Dr. Rimkus

-N. Myrtle Beach, SC |

I recently saw Dr. Rimkus for an umbilical hernia. The doctor was great. He recommended surgery. However upon speaking to their insurance person I was told i had to give them over $1000.00 dollars to be able to see the scheduling person. She was very matter of fact like. Mentioned no other way to get scheduled or payment options. When i told her i could not pay it that day she said " here's my card, call me when you have the money". No way to do business.

He knew instantly what was wrong and needed to be done. No hesitation. Very professional and answered all my questions. His staff was caring and friendly. The whole atmosphere made me relax and feel good about the care I was to receive.

Review of Dr. Epstein

- in Conway, SC |

Dr. Epstein, his staff and the surgical staff at Conway Medical Center cared for me over a period of eight months this year. Dr. Epstein is an amazing physician: caring, thoughtful, easy to talk with. He takes time with each patient, explains thoroughly the diagnosis, subsequent procedure and prognosis. He's incredibly upbeat .. serious when needed but has a delightfully wicked sense of humor as well. Found no one in the medical community who does not think very highly of this man! Recommend :-)

Weston and I would like to thank Doctor Epstein and his team staff for the great job they did while Weston Dix was in the hospital under their care and he was taken good care of while there. Dr. Aaron Epstein accomplished an amazing surgery on Weston and we were very pleased with his work that he did. Also his team staff were so good to us while Weston was there in the hospital and upon his followup appointment as well. Thank you for your great surgery that was performed on Weston.

RUN! Run the other direction. He is a liar and doesn’t look out for his patient when it comes down to it. His ego is more important. He is not the best. And when it comes to your family....KEEP LOOKING! The nurses do the best they can but ultimately hands are tied
