What People Say About Dr. Charles Rheeman, MD

Giving one star because leaving zero is not an option. Rude, unkind, pretentious doctor. Treated my elderly parents as if they were insignificant. Repeatedly told my mother that he knew nothing about her, despite having her complete history in front of him then berated her for not seeing the correct doctor in her regular ophthalmology practice. Offered no explanation of the one possible treatment he offered her. Will never recommend Dr. Rheeman to anyone.

Wasted our time. Proposed a possible diagnosis for the patient but then retreated and did nothing. Tried to argue that patient might have had his present sub-acute condition involving subdural hematoma from birth (!?!) and insisted he could only address a problem directly involving the optic nerve, which belies the information on his website.

He runs the right tests and is able to quickly diagnose problems. He doesn't waste any time, but is kind and answers all questions to the best of his ability.
