Dr. Rimm is always consistently awesome.

July 20, 2020 1:31 PM

Dr Rim is a wonderful provider. she made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. it is obvious she goes above and beyond for her patients.

July 20, 2020 1:31 PM

great experience at the office, everyone was friendly, respectful and most of all professional. The front desk staff, the ultrasonographer and the nurses and medical assistants were all wonderful. I will recommend this office and providers to my friends and family.

June 19, 2020 9:24 AM

Dr. Rim is an amazing and caring physician.

June 19, 2020 9:24 AM

Great experience!

June 12, 2020 2:10 PM

They are very good take care about me, very good.

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Rim is kind and knowledgeable. She promptly answered my follow-up questions through the portal.

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

Good COVID-19 protocols.

March 29, 2020 5:31 AM

I love Dr. Rim & her nurse . They are absolutely wonderful human beings.

March 29, 2020 5:31 AM

Excellent very caring & thoughtful & patient.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

I have been seeing Dr. Rim for many years and I have to say that she is not only a great and caring doctor but she is also so nice and genuinely sweet. Thank you Dr. Rim.

March 21, 2020 8:30 AM

excellent! I love Dr. Rim.

March 21, 2020 8:30 AM

I really like using the patient portal. I didn't receive a phone call from my results from my Pap smear, which is fine with me, because I'm able to access the results on the portal.

March 18, 2020 12:44 PM

Average appointment. The doctor was kind and explained necessary things. I did not have any questions to be addressed. All the staff was nice.

March 18, 2020 12:44 PM

Love the new location!

March 4, 2020 11:09 AM

Dr. Rim was fantastic, as always.

March 2, 2020 1:23 PM

Dr. Rim is a good listener.

February 28, 2020 3:33 PM

This was my first time seeing Dr. Susan Rim for my ob-gyn yearly physical and pap smear. She was very nice to me and I appreciated that very much since it was a first meeting. Last year I saw Dr. X but she left the practice and moved out of state. Before her, I saw Dr. X for years, but I was told that after her medical leave, she will be retiring and not returning to the practice. So I decided to see Dr. Rim and I am happy with that decision.

February 28, 2020 3:33 PM

It was a good experience for a first-time meeting with a new doctor.

February 28, 2020 10:27 AM

Dr. Rim is the most caring and professional person.

February 26, 2020 2:20 PM

I like Dr. Rimm and trust her with my health care and personal questions etc. I feel she takes a real interest in my care.

February 25, 2020 6:57 AM

I am very happy to see Dr Rim every time I have appointments

February 24, 2020 9:06 PM

Dr. Rim is always pleasant, she listens to me and makes sure that her explanations are clear and concise. She demonstrates a great deal of knowledge regarding my medical history and I am always part of the decision-making process regarding my health.

February 24, 2020 7:12 PM

all good

February 24, 2020 7:12 PM

one week later, haven't heard anything about lab results.

February 22, 2020 7:11 AM

Excellent service

February 21, 2020 8:03 AM

Dr. Rim is an excellent doctor.

February 21, 2020 8:03 AM

My issues are with my 1st contact when I call. Twice now when I've thought I had a infection, the person I spoke to 1st offered me an appointment for a week later - she's not listening - an infection needs to be seen ASAP - I had to be forceful to get an appointment the next day. Also - when I had a lab test - no one called me - I got a call from the pharmacy - I've now asked for a phone call. Second lab test - didn't hear results for several days??

February 21, 2020 5:42 AM

Dr. Rim helped me to understand the _____ my mammogram needed further diagnostic imaging. This put my mind at ease that there was not a mass on the screening but that it may have been just the position of my breast. I felt very relieved.

February 17, 2020 1:33 PM

love her

February 17, 2020 1:33 PM

great experience

February 6, 2020 11:00 PM

Always courteous & professional.

January 27, 2020 1:58 PM

I completely trust Dr. Rim with my care. She has been with me through three pregnancies and has always been very kind and compassionate.

January 27, 2020 1:40 PM

Overall I like the doctor. She is very nice and engaging. She asked questions about my health, and although I had no issues, I feel, due to previous encounters she would listen and respond.

January 27, 2020 1:40 PM

I would likely recommend her to others.

January 22, 2020 10:06 AM

outstanding care & advice

January 3, 2020 12:12 PM

She is a wonderful OB-GYN provider. She listens to her patient & cares like she is your family member: She really show concern!

January 3, 2020 12:12 PM

Excellent service and experience.

January 3, 2020 10:15 AM

Doctor Rim is a fabulous doctor & knows what is going on w/me & in able to help me understand what is going on w/me right now. I love having her as my main doctor.

December 31, 2019 3:10 PM

I think Dr. Rim is a great doctor and I have complete confidence in her. However, I am not pleased to hear that her office will be moving full-time to the Rand Road location. The receptionists there were not welcoming (four people working on a printer when I arrived, ignoring patients), and it doesn't seem like a good idea to mix an outpatient facility with women arriving for OB/GYN care, especially when there is no dedicated restroom for those patients.

December 31, 2019 3:10 PM

Good experience, as always, with Dr. Rim. Bad experience getting to the appointment, as I did not get a reminder about the appointment, especially that the appt was at Rand Rd, not at Yacktman as usual, so I was very stressed out by the time I got there. Also, the new facility on Rand feels more like a motel than a facility for medical treatment--shiny and new, but cold and like an assembly line.

December 30, 2019 8:01 PM

Dr Rimis an incredibly kind, compassionate and thoughtful doctor. She provided me with outstanding advice and care.

December 27, 2019 12:26 PM

The provider was short with me - I would have appreciated more time talking about my pain - I'm still experiencing it.

December 27, 2019 12:26 PM

Office is nice - overall I do like the providing office and will return - but may request a different doctor.

December 26, 2019 4:10 PM

Dr Rim is lovely! highly recommend. She has been very helpful and supportive to us for our first pregnancy. The only suggestion is for the ultrasound technician to give us a minute to take a video of the heart beat.

December 23, 2019 1:41 PM

I have seen the doctor before. She is very nice and knowledgeable.

December 22, 2019 1:38 PM

very good meeting for the 1st time visit

December 21, 2019 9:16 AM

Thank you for answering all my questions and being thorough.

December 17, 2019 9:48 AM

Dr. Rim is an amazing physician. She listens to my concerns, spends time with me, and is knowledgeable.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

good experience, felt at ease, very thorough, listened to concerns, referred me to another specialist

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

Good experience. We see the provider every 4 months.

November 14, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr Rim is a very caring and thoughtful doctor. it shows that she cares about her patients. couldn't have asked for a better OB doctor that I would trust to deliver my baby! I have already recommended her to all my friends and family.

November 13, 2019 2:08 PM

Dr. Rim is an excellent caring doctor.

November 13, 2019 2:08 PM

The only "bad"experience"is that I'm still waiting for my test results. They said it would be about a week, but Friday will be 2 weeks. I'll call the office then, if I still haven't gotten results.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

I always have a good experience when seeing Dr. Rim. Everyone in the office is caring.

October 13, 2019 7:00 PM

I was very satisfied.

October 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Rim is the best! she and her nurse both took a long time to listen and provide care

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Susan Rim clearly has the knowledge and experience necessary for a fine physician. She also takes time to connect and listen to me, answer any questions I have, and explain my medical case to me. She is very personable and easy to talk to.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt taken cared and in good hands.

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim was very nice & thorough. I have been a pt. or Dr. X for about 15 yrs. Since she left the practice, I switch to Dr. Rim.

September 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rimm is very patient, shows empathy and concern. She listens, offers possible solutions and helpful suggestions. Love her.

August 30, 2019 7:00 PM

She is caring, understanding, and very attentive.

August 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent visit.No problems just annual exam. Wonderful doctor.

August 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim was very friendly and got the check up done in a decent amount of time.

August 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is a new doctor for me. She was better than I hoped for, she was great.

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Rihm was following up from my hysterectomy which she performed 7/10/19. The follow up was great

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

I've been seeing Dr Rim for years. when I changed my insurance from PPO to HMO I made sure to find a new PCP so I could keep seeing her even if it's only once a year. she's that amazing!!

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is excellent. This is my 2nd pregnancy under her care & I couldn't be more satisfied!

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim was very nice and came highly recommended by my primary care doctor. However, I felt that the ten minutes I spent with Dr. Rim was not enough to address my concerns. I did not receive contact from her office to discuss my test results, rather, I had to log onto the portal to obtain them. I felt that my symptoms were pre-menopausal and if I had had a meaningful discussion with Dr. Rim about my symptoms, I would be able to cope with my symptoms better. My time spent with Dr. Rim was strictly diagnostic. It's a shame that a comprehensive gynecological appointment lasted only ten minutes. As an Advocate Registered Nurse, I am very disappointed about the lack of time spent with patients, not only for those impatient, but those receiving care in the outpatient setting as well.

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I was told my pap results would be called to me and to this day nothing.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is very thorough and easy to talk to. She covers every aspect in the field of women's health.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is very personal and develops a good rapport with her patients. She is very professional and helpful.

July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Found everyone at this office to be extremely efficient, courteous & professional.

June 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent visit with an amazing CMA & provider.

June 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Rim is caring and respectful as well as her staff. I would recommend her to all my friends and family members.

May 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I was very comfortable. This was my first visit as my previous gynecologist has discontinued her practice. I feel that Dr. Rim will be a perfect replacement for me! Very happy!

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

was a great experience. Dr. Rimm was helpful and nice and was courteous to all my concerns.

May 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Kind and patient, very thorough (medical history, medications, tests/surgery needed, etc.).

May 17, 2019 7:00 PM

it was a good visit she took the time to talk to me

May 3, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience was great.

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Rim is the best doctor! she takes her time ,listens to concerns, is an excellent doctor!

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I always have a pleasant experience when I am at this particular doctor

April 23, 2019 7:00 PM

very attentive and understanding

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

She was a new doctor for me. I really liked her and she was quite thorough in getting to know me. This was my first visit with Dr. Rim.

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

She is very pleasant and knowledgeable.

April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

quick and thorough. entire staff was very nice.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim awesome!

April 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is always very pleasant, respectful, helpful and patient with me. I fully trust her with my pregnancy.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

dr Rim is attentive, understanding and patient. she addressed my concerns and explained my results.

April 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Always a pleasure to see Dr. Rim. I go for a full checkup including a mammogram, cholesterol test, glucose, CA 125.

April 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rim is such a professional. Empathetic, knowledgeable and very patient. She listens to my concerns, asks my opinion, gives wonderful health suggestions based on my feedback about how I want to feel. I drive 40 minutes to her office for the last 3 years after we moved out of the area because I don't want to give up being under her care. I trust her completely and know if I disagreed with anything she recommended we could have a conversation and she would respect my decisions.

April 1, 2019 7:00 PM

I believe that she was very respectful, professional and courteous. I felt as if she was genuinely concern about my well being and took the time to explain test results. she also took the time to ensure that my record was up to date since there was a system upgrade/change since the last time I was in the office. she wanted to make sure that the information transferred correctly and was indeed correct.

March 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Impossible to get timely test results or appointments!

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Kim is a wonderful doctor

February 22, 2019 6:00 PM

great

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Wonderful. Dr. Lin was extremely pleasant and I did not feel rushed.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

Good

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

The wait to check in was unacceptable. The people at check in were having major problems with the computer system.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

very good

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Rim is a great doctor, I will definitely come back to see for any gynecological question or concerns I have.
