Dr. Doris M. Rice, MD says

Our office adheres to a strict policy and standard of care. Treatment is only rendered after a thorough evaluation and workup has been rendered. Medication pushing is not part of my treatment philosophy, as can be attested by patients who have been part of my practice for more than 20 years. Patients are always well-informed regarding their treatment plans and participate in selecting therapeutic options suitable to their care.

Please contact my office at (757-399-5000) if you have any questions or concerns.

I was referred here after a positive ANA panel. Dr. Rice ordered a million labs (including several I definitely did not need like Hep C & TB!) then told me my labs were fine. All she offered was that my pain was due to depression despite having been evaluated multiple times for depression and always being found mentally sound. She prescribed water aerobics despite an established history of passing out with and without exertion. I am have now been waiting for a call back for 3 days.

First visit, she was understanding of my condition, but started recommending additional medications to take on top of what already works. Did not check for contraindications with current medications for other conditions. Recommended biological that could have adverse affects on current conditions. Also recommended 'mail order' pharmacy .. not sure of them. holding off until more information obtained. Will try 1 more appointment and see what shakes out. Do not like drug pushing doctors.
