Patient Comments (3)
in Lansing, MI |
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.
Thank you for the review. I look forward to exceeding your expectations in every way possible. MR
