I was surprised just how much time Dr. Rice spent listening carefully to my concerns and seeking to diagnose my health problems and determining an appropriate course of action. In this day with everything being about pushing patients in and out of the door to achieve set metrics, it was refreshing to experience a doctor's visit where it felt like he would take the time necessary to properly diagnose my health problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Rice to anyone for their health care.
