If you want your pet have adequate care (I'm not even saying "good" or even "great" care) STAY AWAY FROM DR. RHEE. A few years back I brought my beloved chihuahua girl to him, because she was not eating. I dropped her off on a Monday. Dr. Rhee's office called on Wednesday saying that they cannot see what's wrong with her and that I should pick her up, which I did. But something was wrong... She still wasn't eating, so I brought her back (my BIG mistake) on Thursday morning, hoping he would try other ways of figuring out what's wrong with her. Well, I was so wrong. Dr. Rhee decided that his golf tournament with friends was more important and he left the clinic at 3pm!!! Later I found out that my beloved puppy had swallowed some cotton and that later that afternoon her intestine had ruptured after throwing up after much retching. If she would've been supervised they could have seen what was happening to her: After her intestine ruptured (after the strain from throwing up and AFTER Dr. Rhee had left), sepsis or blood poisoning set in: body temperature rises, heart rate increases etc. This all could've been prevented if Dr. Rhee would've stayed on the premises at least until the clinic's official closing hours. But nobody who knew what to do stayed around to watch over my baby! She died that night, alone.... from neglect!!!!! Her death was completely preventable, had Dr. Rhee stayed around and cared enough to check periodically on her, particularly after she'd thrown up. I find Dr. Rhee's actions neglectful, unethical and cold hearted. If you truly care for your pet, STAY AWAY!!! All I got was a phone call the next morning at 8am that my puppy had died. Imagine, you drop her off and besides not eating she's fine and the next thing you know she's gone!!! I'm still traumatized from that event and am to this day afraid to leave any of my pets overnight at a vet and any surgery brings up that horrible time Dr. Rhee had me go through.
It makes me think other vets have written those bad reviews! Dr. Rhee may not be the least expensive, but he is a great vet. I trust him with all my animals and he's so very kind and compassionate. I don't take my animals anywhere else. He put my dog back together after a vicious attack and there aren't even any scars. He's gentle. I've seen him so very distressed when one of his patients doesn't make it.
Well, I'm shocked to hear all the negative reviews on Eagle Glen Vet. I've been taking my dogs here for the past 13 years and would never go anywhere else! The staff is respectful and reasonable, and Dr. Rhee is very knowledgeable vet! And I trust him with my dog's life! To emphasize, since I got my pup I've been going to him until the last visit I went to him, I hope he stays in business for many years to come. Also he's been in business since 1987, the man must be doing something right.

After discussing with the doctor that I preferred not to treat my 4-month puppy with medications for a light skin rash, he proceeded to give him a ""steroid"" shot to help the itching, then prescribed steroid pills, and gave me a steroid topical spray to use on him that had never been tested on dogs under 1 year of age. The spray bottle also mentioned not to spray on pregnant mothers because of stillborn possibilities and to always wear gloves when spraying on dog! What kind of boison (rhymes with...) did he prescribe! Plus, after online researching, you don't give steroid medications to puppies! Got my money back the following day. So I warn others to find a doctor who will LISTEN to your concerns and not just boison your dog and pillage you of money.... By the way, I changed my dogs brand of food and the rash went away. But did he mention that? Nope...

I brought my puppy here for the first time b/c she had an ear infection. Dr Ghee told me he need to put her under general anesthesia which costs $400!!! For an ear infection! In order to ""flush"" out her ears. Well luckily for me I had a back-up vet which is out of town so I called him and he said that's rediculous! Unless your dog is out of control - which my pup is not she is very calm. So I told Ghee to clean out her ears, remove the hair and give me drops. He made me feel like I was a terrible mother for not forking over the big bucks. So a week later my puppy's ears were not any better. So I took the journey to my long trusted vet out of town and he said the medicine I was given only helps one part of the infection. Anyhow he prescibed a new drop med and now my dog is fine. I feel Dr Ghee gave me medicine that wouldn't really help my dog in hopes that I'd break down and come back for the expensive anesthesia proceedure. Better know your stuff if bring your pet here or be a millionaire to pay for the aggressive and expensive recommendations he makes. I will never go back!
