A great doctor

Dr Rhee performed CABG open heart surgery on me at Ivova Alexandria Hospital 9 years ago this month. He was very confident and reassuring and answered my questions and explained what to expect before the operation. later afterwards, he came to my bedside to check my condition every morning during my 3-day stay at the hospital. I cannot thank him enough and would recommend to anyone who needs a cardiac surgery.

The very best

If there were a higher rating than 5 out of 5 Dr Rhee and his team would deserve it. Patient care is a team effort and nothing was missed. The first face I saw after complex endovascular surgery was Dr Rhee's and I remember saying with wonder I'm alive! Over the next few days of surgical recovery I saw Dr Rhee, Dr McWey and Dr MacGloughlin daily. The nursing staff was awesome , as was the community services followup. I certainly cannot imagine the equal anywhere in the country abd I am profoundly gratefulm

superb

The doctor performed an open aortic aneurysm repair. During the consultation he immediately put me at ease with what was about to happen. He was very confident and reassuring with me and my wife. During the surgery he kept my wife informed as to how things were progressing. The doctor has a great bedside manner.
