This was my first time seeing Dr. Laurie Rice and it was a pretty routine physical. She seemed very nice and warm. The only drawback was the wait time. I got there at 2:15 for a 2:30p appointment and probably didn't see her until after 3:15p for less than 5 minutes.

I don't appreciate doctors that quickly dismiss every concern a patient has just because the patient looked young and healthy. Very unhelpful and dissatisfactory. The test results came through in less than one day, which was very fast.

The wait time was absolutely ridiculous. I had an appointment and they were taking walk-ins back who had arrived after me before I was seen. I had to wait an hour and a half to be taken back into an exam room and then I waited almost another 30mins back there! The staff appeared to be exhausted and I felt like the millionth patient they had seen that day. The facilities themselves took me back to my days in the UK dealing with the NHS. They were dated and didn’t seem that clean. Dr. Rice herself apologized for the long wait. She was nice and thorough and gave me referrals to other specialists for what I needed. I just don’t know if it’s worth dealing with their office and wait time to see her.

Very transactional experience. Didn't spend a lot of time with Dr. Rice and the appointment felt a bit rushed and disorganized. Overall, a fine experience for a physical, but not the amount of time and care I was hoping to spend on a yearly check-up.

While the doctor was pleasant, I waited 45 minutes to be seen. Then another 15 for a blood test. And was told to call the next day for the result, but the next day there was no one in who could give me the result.

I had a 2pm appointment. I arrived at 1:50. At 2:45 I still had not been called despite having turned in the completed forms soon after arriving. After waiting almost an hour, I asked the receptionist, "How much longer," and she started to say, "Let me tell you how it works when you're a walk-in," at which point I cut her off and stated, "I HAD a 2:00 appointment," after which she seemed surprised, then said, "Okay, you're next." I was furious (though didn't show it) given how I rushed to get there EARLY to complete paperwork, plus I was in pain because I was there for a pre-surgical physical and my knee was killing me (the part that's due to have surgery).

Dr. Rice was very attentive and listened to all of my questions and concerns. I went in for a general consultation to talk through a few things, including vaccinations I needed for an international trip. She was knowledgeable and helpful. I did wait for close to an hour, but that appeared to be due to an issue between Zocdoc and the hospital's booking system (my appointment never appeared in its booking system). Even though my appointment didn't appear in the hospital's system, the team still honored it and placed me in front of the doctor as soon as they could.

I am currently looking for a new PCP since my insurance changed. Dr. Rice was very nice and professional, however, I give her 4 stars because I felt like as a young walk-in coming for an annual physical, I was somewhat dismissed as a healthy person. I felt like the general assessment was glossed over and lacking a bit, and when I brought up a basic concern to her, she simply referred me to a specialist instead of giving any advice for specific care. My sister-in-law is a nurse practitioner and had better tips for me, but I was expecting my PCP to provide this if not more information for me. I think I would see Dr. Rice again, depending on my insurance situation in a year. In the end, routine blood tests will provide an objective indication of my health - something that can't be provided by a visual examination. I can't speak to her care for more serious matters.

Waited over an hour with an appointment. I used to see Dr. Rice but the last few visits she’s seemed super rushed and dismissive, spending no more than 5 minutes with me. Note that this is a clinic and you really don’t get the same level of attention and care.
