Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 8, Dr. Andrew Rice initially wanted to be an endocrinologist. But that changed during a neurology stint while a resident. “My wife said it was the happiest she had seen me while in residency. I was excited to get to work and to learn about new patients. That’s when I decided to switch to neurology.”
Dr. Rice enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter and loves to cook for family and friends.

Comments From Patients
Dr. Rice is always professional and his given me good information on how to better manage my chronic migraines.
Dr. Rice seemed to be in a rush to finish and leave. He seemed dismissive of my questions on bringing up items related to my visit.
Dr. Rice asked more questions and even gave me an exam something that my other Dr. didn’t do. He seems to be very knowledgeable and wants to help me.
Rice is a very pleasant doctor.
Outstanding healthcare provider. I appreciate his expertise, demeanor, and empathetic perspectives in his interactions with me.
Dr. Rice was amazing. He took his time to find somewhere that could help me since my problems are not neurological. Great Dr.
I felt that the provider was rather abrupt and not particularly interested in my husband’s situation. He didn’t solicit information that could be relevant or helpful to our understanding the situation. He wasn’t particularly welcoming and did not seem to interact with us and explain his information as to the future of the condition. He stated information but did not give any dimension to it.
Doctor Rice is a great Doctor. And I trust him.
This provider is undoubtedly knowledgeable in his field. This provider answers questions you ask directly but is not as personable as I would like. He did not offer much information except a brief comment as to what to expect.
This was my first visit with Dr. Rice. He was thorough, astute & helpful.
