Dr. Rhee explained the expected surgical procedure, and its risks and benefits. My recovery was pretty easy, about what he'd predicted (or maybe a bit better). I chose Dr. Rhee on the recommendations of several acquaintances, and I would recommend him enthusiastically to anyone considering back surgery.

Dr. Rhee and his staff did an excellent job while I was there, also takes the time to listen to patient before and after surgery. Good bedside manner and has good Nurses to answer questions and such.

Dr. Rhee did my surgery in August 2019. The only pain I have had is healing pain and itching. I wish I had found Dr. Rhee a long time ago. I was worried and scared about having back surgery because I lost a sister-in-law back in the 1990's to back surgery. Dr. Rhee listened and discussed the procedures with me and answered any questions I had and I made the decision to have the surgery. It was the best decision I could have made.

I have visited at least four orthopedic spine surgeons over the past 15 years, and I never felt as comfortable with any of them as I do Dr. Rhee. Dr. Rhee is a great listener. He answers questions well and honestly. He has a pleasant and congenial disposition and bedside manner. Dr. Rhee did Anterior Cervical Spinal Fusion on 3 levels along with cleaning up severe Stenosis for me in August. I woke up from surgery completely pain free, and most of the neuropathy and tingling I was experiencing was gone. I remain pain free now 6 was. later, and now the neuropathy and accompanying symptoms are ??% GONE. My strength and vigor are returning, and I feel better than I have in 15 years. I am so very pleased and thankful. Nurse Betty and the other office staff are outstanding at their jobs, as well. The office is managed and run very professionally and efficiently. I only wish I could get out of this collar sooner, but then it’s a small price to pay for such stellar results!

I could not be happier with the results of my spine surgery performed by Dr. John Rhee in Feb 2019. He has correctly predicted every outcome of my progress. His staff is unsurpassed in their care and attention. Any time I have a question or concern, someone calls me back within a few hours; every matter concerning my surgery and recovery has been handled with unmatched professionalism. I would highly recommend Dr. John Rhee to anyone who needs this type of surgery and care.

Dr. Rhee and his team are excellent. Obviously, when you are getting ready for surgery it can be nerve racking. The procedure went very well and I am suprised that my recovery is easier than I anticipated. I had triple fusion (C4 - C7). I would highly recommend Dr. Rhee and his team. Very professional.

I have had 2 lumbar fusions and a cervical fusion. Dr. Rhee did my second lumbar fusion. After that experience, I decided that no one else would ever operate on my spine but Dr. Rhee. When I needed a cervical fusion, I immediately called Dr. Rhee’s office. I am doing beautifully and I highly recommend him. I trust his skills implicitly.
