Dr Rhem is outstanding. He took his time to explain procedures and options thoroughly and offered his personal thoughts on my individual situation. He also gave me plenty of time to ask questions - never did I feel rushed during my appt time with him. I would have no hesitations in recommending Dr Rhem to anyone.

Dr Rhem did my LASIK surgery in 2004, he did my mother's cataract surgery, and my father's cataract surgery. He is one of the best physicians I have ever encountered. His care is excellent, his bedside manner is excellent, he explains everything clearly, answers all questions, and has excellent surgical outcomes. I highly recommend Dr Rhem.

This is first time I have ever walked out of a medical appointment. Perhaps I was spoiled by my previous eye doctor who passed away and was so friendly and caring. Getting measurements taken at this practice was more like a physical in the Army (or perhaps the Marines); do this, do that, don't blink. Very efficient but like an assembly line. Also, I didn't fit the paradigm of a typical patient so the technician started giving me a hard time. So I gave him a hard time back and left.

Dr. Rhem was incredible. Extremely honest about the risks and potential outcomes of my procedure and took the time to make me feel comfortable. As PRK is an elective procedure to improve vision, I was initially nervous about doing it. I am very thankful that I did. I experienced discomfort fairly standerd to the procedure (which I was warned about), but the results are phenomenal and I always felt supported by Dr. Rhem and his staff.

I have been seeing Dr. Rhem for about 4 years, and he recently performed cataract surgery on both eyes. He is friendly, competent, encourages questions and explains things well. Highly recommended.
