Every one has different needs, hence the confusion of why some folks may think Dr. Rhee is terrific and others may not. If you are healthy and need routine health maintenance--he the doctor. If you need more in depth care, forget about it. My husband has a lung mass and was being referred to pulmonary--the good doctor was not even curious enough to listen to my husband's lungs.

Prompt, efficient and professional! I have never waited more than 10 min for an appointment. If you are looking to for small talk, keep looking. If you want to get in and out without spending half your day at the doctors office he's your guy!

I am having trouble understanding these negative comments about Dr. Rhee. I find him to be thorough, attentive, responsive, efficient and knowledgeable. Dr. Rhee always gives me a follow up call with test results ect. I never have issues with appointments or referrals and his assistant Nicole always calls me back when asked. I am pleased with Dr, Rhee and his staff.

I had to leave a review because Dr. Rhee does not deserve these horrible comments, which I do not believe. Dr. Rhee always does a thorough exam. He listens to all concerns, answers any questions and then explains options. He has battled insurance companies for tests they deemed unnecessary. My husband and I have been seeing him for more than ten years and will continue to do so.

I have been a patient for 5+ years and think that he and his staff are fantastic. Actually hesitate to leave a review since my only issue is his popularity means that I need to book a regular physical even further in advance. However, seeing a 3 of 5 rating is definitely wrong.

Didn't even listen to my lungs and it turned out I had pneumonia. I was 84 years old with lung disease. Shame on you
