I presented Dr,Rice with a report from the medical department at work. Unfortunately, she did not do any follow up work to confirm the findings in the report. Secondly, the assistant who took me into her office, only did a blood pressure reading. He did not check my weight, height or do any of the normal procedures expected during a doctor's visit. The service was better when DOC was under Beth Israel

She seemed incredibly rushed and I actually felt like I was bothering her. I found this ironic after having waited patiently for nearly 45 minutes to see her on my hour lunch break. It concerned me that my blood work from a previous appointment hadn't been discussed with me and there were abnormalities. It was only brought up this visit, when I came in complaining about several ailments that coincided with the abnormal blood work for the previous appointment that took place several months ago. She seemed very on it the visit before this one, so perhaps, I'll give her another try. If there is a repeat, I'll be changing doctors.

Dr. Laura Rice is the most wonderful of physicians. She has a marvelous bedside manner and listens to her patients as they describe their illness or condition. I've never experienced her rushing me, although I know her day is long and her patients are many. It's no wonder Dr. Rice is beloved by her patients. A grateful thumbs up!

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.

Dr. Rice was quick and professional. Easiest physical I've had in years and I even got my blood drawn quickly, too. Only note is that the wait time was about 45 minutes, not including me getting there 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. At that point, what's the use in making an appointment? I'm lucky it wasn't a mid-day appointment or I would've had to leave.

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!
