Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rho for many years. It all began with an unknown issue that he quickly identified and corrected. He is an exemplary physician!! What makes him exemplary - he cares, he's attentive, he's knowledgeable, he's passionate, he communicates efficiently and most of all - you can trust him. I highly recommend Dr. Rho for Retina care.

Dr. Rho was recommended to me, several years ago, by my first ophthalmologist, who I trust implicitly, because his “eyes could no longer see what he needed to see.” I have never regretted having Dr. Rho take over my care. I have found Dr. Rho to be thorough, caring, and expert in evaluating and taking care of my eyes. I never feel simply like a medical record number or a patient to be ticked off of the daily patient list. I believe that Dr. Rho sees me, and sees my eyes, and that he actually cares about my vision being the best it can be in my advancing years. And even more than that, Dr. Rho gives his patient’s TIME, as if he has an infinite amount. One never feels rushed, and he gladly answers questions in an understandable way. Dr. Rho is a gem in a world where medicine increasingly feels remote and mechanical. His specialty is your eyes, but he sees AND delivers his expertise to your person.
