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.

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.

Doctor Rice was absolutely amazing. I've been seeking a new PCP for a few years, and I think I found one! She has great bad side manner, and so calm, cool, and understanding. She made me feel as if she had been my doctor for years. I cannot wait to see her again. The wait time took about 30 minutes, but I was a new patient at the end of the the business day. It was to be expected, but the Alfonso and the front desk team are phenomenal.

Dr Rice is one of the worst doctors I've ever seen. I went in for a Physial that only consisted of her listening to my heart and lungs ( nothing else) . She asked me barely any questions and I could tell she didn't look at my chart at all. When I brought up an issue I was having to her almost seemed like I was bothering her by asking a question and basically said she didn't know what it was and that I needed to see another doctor. She gave me a blood test and said I would get the result later that day, I had to call the office 3 times to get them. I felt like I was rushed out of the office. I would never recommend anyone to see her.

Both Dr Laurie Rice and her assistant were fantastic - her assistant can take blood without you even feeling a scratch and I have quite deep veins so this was really impressive! Front desk staff were a little brisk so I was pleasantly surprised when I got to see the doctor at how nice she was. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. Rice is amazing, warm, comforting, and I look forward to having her as my GP. The office staff, however, were less than professional - one woman complained to me that she hadn't eaten all day when I was giving her my paperwork. She also complained about her coworker, who was on the phone, to another coworker in front of me. It was odd. But Dr. Rice was just amazing, it made the hour's wait worth it.

Dr. Riiz is awesome doctor, but I'm thinking about changing my doctor due to the front desk at the clinic the gentleman in the front is very nasty and unprofessional. Had me waiting for over 45 minutes and when I asked about one of the dock to see me he had a very nasty attitude young lady stepped in and helped me and I was seen with in the next five minutes no he told me was gonna be a long wait and brushed me off after waiting 45 minutes the clinic is really a good clinic but you really have to do something with The front desk
