Living with Multiple Myeloma is not an easy road to go down. Dr. VanRhee and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and caring. I was fortunate enough to have been steered to UAMS and Dr. VanRhee. I'm five years out now and feeling great now thanks to his and his staffs efforts. Highly recommend this facility and especially Dr. VanRhee.

If you have Multiple Myeloma go to him. He is an expert and the reason I'm alive today. Other doctors around the country wanted to experiment on me. He wanted to heal me. You will most likely have a very long wait in the lobby, but this team is worth it.

Little Rock, AR – Jul 16, 2017
Dr. Van Rhee was my father's MM doctor & oversaw a stem cell transplant that in Van Rhee's opinion would give my father an additional 10 years of life. While the transplant was considered a success, my father was given a dose of incorrect medicine the follow day. He was then admitted to the ER & within 23 days passed away from complications with the medicine. Van Rhee only visited my father two times during his ER stay & referred to him as a "learning experience."

Ft Worth, TX – Jun 18, 2017
Dr. Van Rhee was my husband's doctor from March 2016 until July 20, 2016. One day post stem cell transplant, my husband was prescribed a drug, contraindicated for his preexisting conditions, by an Infusion IV nurse. My husband was hospitalized the next day and died 23 days later from drug-induced complications. Dr. Van Rhee referred to this as a "learning experience." A terrible thing to have said made worse by the fact that the drug has been on the market for nearly 60 years.
