Unfortunetely I've never had the opportunity to speak or see Dr. Rice. You see, my doctor faxed a referral request to Dr. Rice's office. His staff left me a message on my answering machine saying that I have to have a written note! I called their office back - got their answering machine - and now, after two months, still have not heard from them.
NOT PROFESSIONAL IN MY OPINION!

I already have implants due to breast cancer reconstruction. I'm having a slight problem and wanted his advice as I feel I need a redo and he seems to be more experienced in reconstruction.

Hey Linda!
I moved this as the other section is for recommendations. Dr Rice recently told me his old secretary left and it took some time for him to get a new one so that is probably why there was no response....you should try again. What problems are you having?

Thanks Sarah, I hate leaving negative notes but I was getting frustated.

HOWEVER...........I'VE GOT AN APPT. ON NOV. 8 Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I'm looking for his advice on the reconstructed breast. I think my Z-plasty scar has latched on to the implant and it's causing some discomfort above and below the scar - not allowing any movement of the breast and a lot of "pulling"

I've heard a lot of good things about Dr. Rice but boy-o-boy I couldn't get past the front office! This one women said that they don't accept faxed referrals Shocked - I would have to submit a written referral. When I tried to get in touch with them to question this extremely odd preferrence, they never, ever, called me back.

But all that's over.............I've got the appt. and I'm thrilled!

hmmm perhaps that was a temp or someone? who knows? you could perhaps politely tell him your experience, as from my dealings with him he seems like a very professional person and would like to know.

let us know what he says about your scar!
