My appointment with Laurie rice was fine. However, I went to renew my birth control prescription and we discussed a 1 year renewal. At 6 months the pharmacy told me the prescription was out of refills, they called the doctors officeand told me it had been renewed. I had also called the doctors office to follow up and had been told it would be taken care of. Then, the next month I went in to refill and she had cancelled the renewal. No one had called me and now I am at the end of my pack and need birth control. I will not return to this MD.

I needed some lotion for poison ivy. Dr. Rice recognized the skin rash, which I confirmed was poison ivy, and gave me a prescription for the appropriate lotion, which improved my condition immediately.

Had an 8:15am appointment as a new patient wanted to see Dr. Rice in hopes she would become my new primary care doctor. At 9am I was still sitting in the waiting room with no estimate as to when I wouldbe seen. There are two many options for good doctors in NYC for that to be acceptable.

The doctor was able to see me quickly, and her examination was thorough. She followed up on a number of issues. I am terrified of needles (terrified!). The nurse was able to put me at ease, and I didn't faint (that's a first!). Everyone was very professional and kind.

Actually I went in a day early to to the Dr. Though I did have to wait because I was not scheduled, Dr Rice was able to see me. I am happy with my the professionalism as well as the timeI was given. My current doctor usually has me in and out no matter what my difficulty is. Looks like I have a new primary care doctor.

Dr. Rice is uniquely gifted as a physician and as a communicator. She's been my primary care provider for years and has always been conscientious in her diagnosis and treatment of whatever health issues I'm having. She is a rare listenerand actually gives a patient her full attention. She hears what is being said. A patient's time is their time and she honors that. Her manner is soothing in a world where all is rush and tension. I think the world of her medical skills and her humanity.

I waited for nearly an hour to see Dr. Rice. I was then given about 10-15 minutes with her for my annual physical exam. I felt very rushed, and key components of an annual physical exam were not performed (I wasn'teven asked to remove my shirt, so several things were missed).

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'tsee 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 examroom 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.
