Dr Rice is very professional yet personable and kind but best of all he knows how to deal and relieve my pain. The girls in the office, are very pleasant and efficient. Dr Rice's assistant, Eric, is very compassionate and knowledgeable.

I've gone in to get shots in my back several times. This time it worked so well. I am so thankful and happy that this time it worked. I think I've had 4 shots over the last few years and this was the best reaction I've had so far. I am so thankful.

I felt very confident in Dr. Rice and was very pleased with his service. However, I've never had such agonizing pain as the position I was in during the procedure. I wish I'd had a few minutes to get over my shaking before I was ushered out so fast!

Each time I have filled these out my review is the same. Dr. Rice is the best pain reliever there is in ABQ, NM. He has helped me so much and is still working with me to find a solution that he and I both are comfortable with. GFO

The doctor was efficient, clear and surprisingly direct in his treatment plan. Usually, I would have the evaluation meeting and then reschedule for the shots. I received the necessary shot on the first visit saving me an extra appointment, time and travel

Dr. Rice is very professional, informative but yet very caring. Dr. Rice makes your needs his priority and makes you leave his office feeling like your needs have been met to the fullest. He is a very caring doctor and I plan to refer him if needed.

I put off getting this shot for over a year because of fear. All of the staff put me at ease. Dr. Rice showed that he is using name-brand drugs, sterile procedure, and safe practices. He thoroughly explained how the shot would be given. Thank you!

Dr Rice has an excellent bedside manner, putting one at ease while performing a potentially painful procedure. Due to his ability, the pain and discomfort is minimized. He takes time to explain the reason for pain and procedure to ameliorate it.

Only problem was having to wait 3 months for the procedure and then the issue relative to the insurance which I believe has now been satisfied per your staff who were called by Blue Cross and then they called me.

The office staff worked so hard to get the quirks out of insurance and so very genuine. The time spent in his office was more than I expected and I found him to be an expert in his field especially since I worked with anesthesia for over 10 years.

Please listen show details Please listen

My Mom is 91 years old. She has all her own teeth, takes one little thyroid pill a day, manages a husband who is in the beginning stages of alzheimers, and reminds me of Betty White. I love and admire her, she sets the stage for who I want to be. I'm writing because she has been ignored, shuffled, left behind and forgotten while doing everything in her power to get a steroid injection for pain that is keeping her awake for nights on end. This woman never complains, If she does, pay attention! She is in pain. She saw Dr. Rice 5 months ago and was given an injection in her neck to relieve inoperable stenosis. During Dr. Rices verbal self appraisal, he assured her his injection would last longer than any previous ones she had recieved. He told her if she needed another, he would not do it without an MRI. Mom got her MRI. After her chart was lost. After waiting weeks for someone to get back with her. Now, apparently that MRI is piled within an overload of others in which Dr. Rice has never followed up on. Meanwhile, during my calls to her, she tells me of being unable to sleep secondary to her arms and hands falling asleep and getting numb. She tells me of 'Shayla' a nurse who assures Mom she is being taken care of, then never calls back. She has now been suffering for over a month. Mom has called the hospital and is obtaining her own disc of her MRI and the reading so that she can seek another physician who might give her relief. She has been pushed aside, shuffled, forgotten, and is tolerating pain way beyond what a 91 year old woman should experience. I feel helpless, frustrated, angry, and confused. I've worked with doctors as a CMA for 37 years in Arizona. I've never seen this kind of neglect. My mom deserves so much better than this.
