Came in for a prescription refill of a routine drug I've been taking for 10 years. I called the office three times trying to refill the prescription and received a different answer each time. On the final call, I asked for the doctor to call me back but never heard from her. Finally made an appointment because my prescription was running low and I had no other options. Waited 30 minutes in the waiting room and then continued to wait in the exam room. I'll be finding another doctor before this prescription runs out again.

I went to Dr. Rice for a physical and I had a great first experience. She was really patient and listened to all of my concerns. And when I told her about my physical pain, she referred me to a specialist rather than just giving me meds (which is what my past doctor did). Secondly, I have to say that everyone at the front desk was super kind which was really pleasant. I feel like I've finally found a PCP I want to stick with!

Mount Sinai never disappoints. I was so nervous I was just going to get a prescription pushed at me but Dr. Rice listened to my concerns and scheduled me for further tests that day. She also recommended me to a follow up doctor and promised she would find the problem. The radiology tech was so nice and really went out of her way to make me feel comfortable.

I was very displeased with the reception and service up front. I waited almost 35 minutes before my "new patient" paperwork was entered into the system. When they called me up to officially check me in, the receptionist had said that I had no appointment booked. I told her I received both an email and text confirmation from ZocDoc and her response was "It must be for tomorrow then," even though the date was in fact correct. She told me she could add me as a walk in and I would be greeted shortly. I waited for another 30 minutes and finally had to speak with a different woman at the front counter just to get my appointment finalized. In the end, I waited for almost 1.5 hours in the waiting room. I finally got into my patient room and was greeted by Dr. Rice, who was extremely apologetic and gracious. She listened to all of my concerns and ended up doing a full work up! Although, I was displeased with the overall service, I would definitely recommend Dr. Rice.

She was nice. I only spent about 10 minutes with the doctor even though I was there for 3 hours. Between being in the waiting room, waiting to see the doctor once I was brought into the room, getting blood taken, then waiting to be told I can leave; it came to 3 hours.

I came into my annual physical with a fever and aches. Ended up having to come back the next day to get a prescriptions for Strep and a uti. I don't understand how a doctor who is examining you can let you walk out of her office with out bothering to take your temperature when you feel warm or question large lymph-nodes or aches. but then again, she was in and out of there so quickly it would make your head spin. In general, she questions everything thing i say as if I and other doctors are completely wrong (other doctors that she sends me to by the way because she doesn't like to try and do anything herself) and i am making stuff up. She even questioned the blood disorder I was diagnosed with and tested by a professional, as if that couldn't be true cause its rare and i must be mistaken.
