I have struggled to find a good primary care doctor since my previous doctor's contract was not renewed. Finally, I believe I landed with just the right provider for me. Dr. Rice "gets" me.

Dr. Rice provided excellent care. She is patient and took the time needed to review the medical records and listen to my concerns. This was my first visit with her. I feel very comfortable with her. She did a breast exam and an internal exam to check the ovaries. Her overall exam of me was head-to-toe and thorough. I waited 9 months to see her as I am in good health and did not need to be seen sooner. She ordered testing, which the office was thorough in explaining. All are scheduled and I will follow through with them. Dr. Rice came highly recommended to me by fellow physicians. It was worth the wait to see Dr. Rice and have her as my physician. Prior to Covid in 2020, having an internist or PCP was not usual for me as my *** performed all the routine health exams and testing. He retired and I knew I had to find another doctor to take his place. I want to thank Dr. Rice for her excellent and thorough care.

In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
