Dr. Rice takes her time with me, answering even my "dumb" questions. She is caring, compassionate, an exceptional oncologist.
in Chula Vista, CA |
She took excellent care of my father, was compassionate to him and the family, and even went over and beyond by calling his estranged daughter to make sure she had a last chance to see her father. She made him feel like his was the only patient and treated him on an individual basis; unlike a previous doctor he had that treated everyone the same. Bless you for all you did for my Dad.
in San Diego, CA |
Dr. Rice treated my husband who passed away this week from kidney cancer. She was caring, compassionate, and a good listener. She went out of her way to stay in contact, explain procedures and test results.
