Dr. Rice was fantastic however the receptionist that checked me in had an extremely poor attitude and demeanor. Her tone towards me and other patients was very offputting. This made for an extremely bad patient experience. I would recommend this provider to anyone I knew however the person at the front desk in my opinion needs more training. Perhaps she is a new hire.

Dr Rice is always kind and compassionate. Listens carefully to what I have to say. She explains things I in a way that I can understand. Her assistant is friendly and explains what is being done.

Spent 30 mins waiting to schedule appt on phone and then they wanted me to call back again with insurance information (I did not). Brought insurance info to check-in and they did not need it. Glad I did not waste my time on hold waiting to give them insurance info!!

My doctor helped me find affordable glasses and was helpful about choosing to use bifocals for the first time.

Dr. Rice and the Devers Eye Clinic always a fabulous team - offering thoughtful, professional, compassionate, reflective care. Although there was a scheduling software glitch which led to a false cancellation at one point for all three o'clock appointments, the team fit me into an earlier time slot the day of appointment to accommodate my work schedule. Dr. Rice appeared to have plenty of time with each patient, and one pt in the waiting area (at the same time as me) had some additional care and support needs prior to, during and following appointment - and she treated them with dignity and respect, kindness and care (even though they presented with some hygiene needs as well as living with cognitive/mh ). Appreciate the care that I and everyone was given that afternoon.

I was happy Dr. Rice was able to accept me as a new patient (I saw her 11 years ago) after spending several years going to an optomotrist in an eyeglasses store.

Dr. Rice is the most patient doctor I have ever seen! I leave her office feeling optimistic about my vision. She had provided me with advice and many tools to assist me to continue doing the things I enjoy doing. She genuinely cares about her patients and the challenges of having low vision.

No wait time at the office! Her schedule was booked out further than I'd hoped, but I understand the issues faced with COVID and provider scheduling.

I was not informed that a optometry intern would be doing my exam. If I had been asked, I would have opted out.

My visit with Dr Rice provided me with the most complete eye exam I have ever had. She answered all my questions and provided the info I needed to manage my condition and also the new prescriptions for my eyeglasses. I want to keep her as one of my health providers.

Karen Rice is what I wish all doctors were: Smart, compassionate, excellent communicator, & she caught what an MD did not see a month ago. If you need an excellent eye doctor, see Karen Rice.
