Dr. Rhee is the worst doctor i have ever met. I wish i would have read all the reviews about him before i went to see him. He doesn't even deserve this star he needs a negative 10 stars! He is an unsympathetic and uncaring doctor. He didn't care about anything i had said to him and seemed he just wanted a quick buck and after that push patients away. Would not recommend Dr. Rhee to ANYONE!!! If you were wise you wouldn't waste your time with this doctor, STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr Rhee is ridiculously apathetic. He has lost his passion for what he does. He rushes you thru an appointment and does not listen to concerns, but he's got another patient waiting. I would not trust him handling my health needs....ever. So grateful I was referred to another doctor who immediately sensed I had been misguided by Dr Rhee.
