Specialties

Dr. Laura L Rice has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

DON'T Bother trying to make an appointment! They sent me away because she is NOT taking any new patients. They did not even ask if they could help me find another doctor.

Amazing

I have always hated going to Dr's. They talk down to you and treat you like you would never be able to understand so why bother explaining and they never listen to you. Dr. Rice is truely a rare find. She listens, explains, and never makes you feel like she is in a hurry. She truely cares about you. That is a rare find. I thank God for her every day. I have had a lot of medical issues and she has been there with me every step.

I really liked this doctor. However, her staff is not at all professional. Dr. Rice ended up not seeing me again because of a stunt her nurse pulled. I was very disappointed but have ended up with a much better doctor. I will never go to a DO again. They simply do not have the skills a MD does.
