Dr. Rice was delightful! This was my first visit but felt like I’d been going to her for years. She was thorough in her exam and clearly explained the diagnosis/treatment. I did have to wait for about 40 minutes but shegenuinely apologized. It didn’t ruin the experience. Overall, I was satisfied with the appointment and look forward to working with Dr. Rice in the future. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist.

Absolutely enjoyed my visit. Dr. Rice is so personable and pleasant! I’m originally from a small town out of state so it was difficult for me to find the office at first. Not too crazy about parking not being validated.

First time having a skin check. Was quick but comprehensive. Dr. Rice was very easy to talk with and informative. They don't validate parking at this location but I found street parking close by.

Dr. Rice has a very positive disposition and makes you feel welcome and comfortable at her practice. I agree with her approach to evidence-based medicine, and she never came close to pushing anything except for sensible and straightforwardtreatments. There was a bit of a wait in the exam room, but besides that I was very happy with the care and advice I received.
