Dr. Rhodes takes wonderful care of me and my mother, she is very kind and a great surgeon.
Dr. Rhodes has taken care of my eye problem for several years now and has always been very professional, she has recently removed my cataracts and given me the clearest vision since I was a small child. I couldn't be more pleased with her work.

When I discovered a stye in my eye for the first time, I panicked. But then I consulted with Dr. Rhodes. She not only calmed me down by explaining exactly what was going on, but also advised me on how to best treat it without having to get it drained. In two days, it was gone. I would highly recommend Dr. Rhodes!
