The waiting time is never less than an hour in the lobby and about another 30mns in the examination room. He is sloppy and does not appear to be professional. I do not recommend him. We had to leave after 2 hours waiting for the appointment at 9:30. There were a few people in the lobby complained and left too.

I like Dr Rhea personally, but his office is filthy, as another person said. The carpets are disgusting, as well as the walls. They have not put paper down on the table any time I've been. The Dr and nps haven't washed their hands any time they come in. The bathroom floor is gunky. And the baseboards are brown with dirt, dust, and hair. Finally, the office ladies can be very gruff and dismissive. I do like Candy and Mimi, the LC's. I am sad to leave Dr Rhea, but it is to filthy.

Very attentive to my toddler and patient and educational.
Dr. Rhea is an amazing pediatrician who is friendly and full of knowledge. He came to my room in the hospital when my son was born and my son was very calm with him. Three years later and Dr. Rhea has never missed a diagnosis for anything my son has had. He is patient and hears all my concerns and answers all my questions. I would highly recommend him!

The waiting area and examination room were filthy, Dr. Rhea was 2 hours late for the appointment time, was dressed in a sloppy and unprofessional manner, and took a personal phone call during our appointment.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
