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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rice for many years and he has always provided, excellent care for me and my husband. I have had several doctors for varying health concerns and there is no one like him. He is patient, caring, always concerned and wants the best health for us. I also appreciate him letting us know we also have a part in our health and promotes wellness and fitness for both of us. He is compassionate. As far as we are concerned, other physicians should follow his lead with patient care.
