The Vitreoretinal Consultants of N.Y. staff in Westbury, N.Y. was amazing. They were all friendly, well mannered, respectful and preformed their tasks with a show of great enthusiasm. Dr. Rhee was extremely personable, respectful and obviously extremely knowledgeable in his practice. He took the time to explain in detail my condition as well as the treatment he suggested. His fantastic demeanor was very impressive, which made me comfortable and confident in his suggestions. I would highly recommend this office.

Very pleasant visit
I had my first visit with Dr.Rhee. After many years of care by Eric Shakin I made the change as we were moving further East and the Hauppauge office made more sense. I was delighted as I barely felt the injection for AMD and did not develop temporary floaters. I found Dr. Rhee very personable and on top of my medical needs.

Shot in the eye!
Dr. Rhee is the best. He's patient and explains everything he'll be doing before he does it. He even gives me extra numbing time because he knows I'm scared to death of those shots in the eye but I have to get them to save my sight.

Most caring office staff around.
The Staff in Dr Rhee's office are always in tune with the patients. They are quick to recognize when a patient requires additional assistance. My father Nat has always been taken care of with sincere and unbridled care! We've always felt comfortable and never rushed with his appointments...
