Both of my sons have had their tonsils and adenoids removed by Dr. Rhee. He explains everything, answers all questions and encourages them to be asked, and places both parents and children at ease. His staff is wonderful and a pleasure to deal with as well. I can't say enough good things about him and the way our children were treated; how many doctors would call on a SUNDAY day off to inquire how a child was feeling from a surgery two days before? That's what you can expect from Dr. Rhee.
After trying a couple of treatments, which did not work for my condition, I had a Tubinectomy done by Dr. Rhee at the end of January 2014. I was so pleasantly surprised in such a good way on how I felt afterwards - unbelievably pretty good!! The whole staff was fantastic!! Everyone there made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. Thank you.

Dr. Rhee was phenomenal. Everything you could possibly ask for in a doctor. Extremely thorough, very honest and responsive! His office was probably one of the most efficient I have ever been to and Dr. Rhee returns all calls from his patients personally.

Dr. Rhee is the best. I drive from another county just to see him and he has operated on 2 of my 3 children. If my 3rd one needs ENT surgery, I wouldn't consider anyone else. I recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Rhee recently performed a tonsillectomy on my teenage daughter. He was wonderful. He took the time to speak directly to my daughter and explain everything that would happen, and how she would feel afterwards. He treated her with respect and kindness. Everything went well and she feels much better after suffering with numerous throat infections for years. I would highly recommend Dr. Rhee!

EXCELLENT DOCTOR! Our daughter had her adenoids and tonsils removed in February. Couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Rhee. His bedside manner with an anxious kid was amazing. He was excellent explaining procedures so that we all felt comfortable prior to our daughters surgery. He is a caring doctor who takes pride in his work. He also takes his time to listen which made all the difference in our daughters case. Great Doctor!

Dr. Rhee performed a tonsillectomy on my 5 y-o son. He had a good demeanor and answered all our questions. My son received very good care in the office and in the hospital.

The office staff was wonderful very easy to make appointments; we were always taken on time and in and out of the office. Dr. Rhee himself and the hearing check people were fabulous with my son!
