This man read my stress test and told me I had "a little plaque" at the top of my aorta and scheduled a follow-up appointment. At that visit, I said I didn't want to be on statins, as I'd read that those with diabetes in their family should avoid them. He YELLED at me, "You've got plaque in your veins! Do you want me to put a stent in you?" "No." "Can you take aspirin?" "I'm allergic to it." He then wrote a script for statins. I later learned statins don't help women. An arrogant man!

Dr. Rice is very kind. He listened to my problems and has helped me get over many illnesses. I have known him for many years and would strongly recommend him.

I would not recommend this guy to anyone! Saw him today for the first time for a stress test and he was so rude! He yelled. At me and told me I was in terrible shape. He had me in tears and feeling terrible about myself! Of course I'm not in good shape, if I was I wouldn't of been there!

He scheduled echo stress test for me.16 min. after resting following stress test with normal heart rate my rate started climbing to where the nurse called him to room. He told her to turn machine off & told me to eliminate caffeine which I don't use and get more exercise. I got no answer as to why I am suddenly a high risk patient with high risk blood pressure & having PVC's.which is why I was referred there. Now I have to find another cardiologist who can be thorough and knowledgeable.
Dr. Rice is fantastic! He has been my cardiologist for 10 years and I can't say anything bad about him at all!!! He saved my life more than once!!! Highly recommend!!
