Dr Rice was EXCELLENT with my daughter. Thoroughly explained options available to us, both surgical and no surgical and what expectations we should have with either treatment plan. I fee like we were able to make an informed decision about her care and i will recommend him to other athletes with injuries.

Front desk staff was rude and slow. Once back for my appointment I spent more time with the staff than Dr. Rice.
in Cincinnati, Ohio |
Dr. Ian Rice is a excellent doctor. However David Ahouse the assistant is just horrible, i feel violated and disgusted from care I received from him, David is not a certified medical assistant, meaning he has no formal medical training or state testing to be classified as certified(CMA), yet he is performing medical procedures and performing them incorrectly and unsanitary. He is danger and liability. I feel so bad that the great Dr Ian Rice has to work with such incompetentcy.

Dr. Rice is an outstanding. He is patient--taking time to answer my questions thoroughly. His appointments are kept on time which I really appreciated. He is a real patient advocate. I would highly recommend him. Also, his assistant Dave is excellent.
