Called office to reschedule appt but she was neither helpful nor friendly and informed me that no doctor was available to see me that day; she placed me on hold for over 8 minutes—I couldn’t wait any longer and just hungup. I then rebooked an appt through Zocdoc for later that same day (even though the receptionist said she couldn’t).

Dr. Rice is wonderful! I've been a patient of hers for years. She is so kind and attentive- she actually LISTENS to her patients concerns. She takes the time to discuss my options without pushing anything on me. I wouldn't seeanyone else in NYC. In fact, I actually go out of my way just to be treated by her specifically.

Dr. Rice was very patient and thoughtful. I did not feel rushed and most importantly, felt she listened to me. I also found the staff to be very friendly. Main downsides were the wait time and quite a few new patientforms; I'd recommend showing up at least 30 min prior to a first visit.

I think she's really but she didn't see invested in the visit. I understand it was only a physical but it was handled without too much attention and with a lot of breaks in between. Don't publish my name thanks.

I needed a refill which required a visit every 6 months. I mentioned over the phone no less than 3 times that I had been there 3 months prior and shouldn't need to come in and that this would cost mea full office visit as I have an HSA. When I pointed this out to her in the office, she admitted with apology she hadn't realized I had been there 3 months prior. Naturally, despite the front desk staff's best efforts (thanks, y'all!), she refused to resolve the issue and I was out significant out of pocket money for her to stare at me for two seconds and confirm I wasn't dead. Found a new physician ASAP.

It is probably not the Dr.'s fault. Maybe in medical center bureaucrats the world over, but I waited 40 minutes to spend 2 minutes with the doctor. I had a surprisingly high BP last month, but had to specifically ask theaide to measure it as she was walking out of the room. The Dr. didn't even remember or ask about my BP. Instead she talked about her experiences. Then wished me happy holidays. Really disappointing

She is fast at addressing your concerns but does not give any feedback whatsoever if you raise a concern. She comes off dismissive. Looking into another physician.

Dr. Rice was friendly and professional. It was a quick visit but she listened to my concerns and answered my questions. It was slightly disappointing that I had to wait 30 minutes to be seen, as I purposely scheduled an 8amand there were no patients ahead of me, but the front desk staff was nice and helped me with my paperwork as it was my first visit.

Love seeing Dr. Rice! She listens to everything you have to say, she's quick and friendly. Can't beat it. The real issue is the office itself, it's very slow paced and the front desk nurses have little to no customer service skills.

I was disappointed with Dr. Rice’s bedside manner. Her approach was reminiscent of a checklist and she didn’t ask any other exploratory questions to try and understand my health concerns better.

I highly recommend Dr. Rice! She’s been my primary care physician for years. She’s thoughtful, thorough and kind. She’s the sort of doctor who, while highly knowledgeable herself, will not hesitate to pause and look further into somethingif she’s not quite sure. SUCH an important quality that more doctors should have! And when needed, she’s always referred me to equally strong specialists.

Dr. Rice is always focused on her patients. She asks pertinent questions and as always asks follow up questions. She never rushes you just to get another patient in, she takes her time to be sure you receive the attention you deserve when you are in her office.
