    I would recommend Dr. Rice to family and friends because of his great patient care, extensive knowledge in the field of radiology, and calm demeanor when explaining procedures to his patients. I had a CT-guided renal biopsy performed by Dr. Rice and his team. My comfort and understanding of the process pre- and post-operation helped tremendously throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Rice and his team were knowledgeable, kind, and helped answer any questions or concerns I had.
