Dr. Rhee was absolutely amazing and professional. He was super attentive to my health needs and gave me back my quality of life. I was in constant pain and had total numbness in my hand prior to the surgery. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Rhee has helped me return to nearly normal function after only three weeks and has eliminated my debilitating pain. What little discomfort I have now is minor and I expect it to get better as I heal. I would recommend Dr. Rhee to a family member or friend without hesitation. Thank you!!!

My experience with Dr. Rhee has been nothing but 100% positive from my first office visit through surgery and hospital stay. I had a 1-5 decompression and 3,4 fusion. He explained and communicated well and answered my questions throughly. Couldn't have had a better surgical experience!
