I was fortunate to have been referred to Doctor Rice after searching for a new PCP. He was very intelligent, and actually listened to me. He also spends time explaining in detail about plans for care. Have been going to him now for the past 8 years and I highly recommend him.

Doctor Rice has been my doctor for years ,I trust him to not only treat but explain all my problems , and if he doesn’t know he will find someone who does. It has always been a pleasure to see him. I have been trusting him with my life for years and I’m still alive !

I am a 49 year old male. And move to Knoxville 4 years ago. I started seeing Dr Rice and he is the first doctor that I have had that actually listens to what I am saying. Also he always takes time with me and never rushes me out of the room. Basically I think he is the best doctor I have ever had. The only worry I have is that he might retire.

I needed a PCM that was experienced and good at what he does. My friend told me he was the best. I have major digestive issues as well as being a cancer survivor and need someone with great reviews and experience. When I called to make an appointment, I explained that my friend referred me to him and wanted to make sure I called the office of Robert Rice as there was more than one listed and I didn't get the number from my friend. Immediately, the girl that had answered was short, extremely rude

Our family have been patients of Dr Rice for over 30 years. He is a superior physician, and as fine and decent a man as you are ever likely to meet. We can, and have, literally trusted him with our lives.
