Karen Rice is exceptional and an asset to Legacy. I have numerous eye issues and she is the only provider to ever prescribe the best possible correction. I attribute this to her taking the time when doing the eye exam. Will see her for many more years toCome and if she ever decides to leave Legacy I will go wherever she goes!

The initial exam was done by an intern. She did not say she was an intern but Dr said so after she came in later after initial eye exam was done. I would have like to have been told she was intern and was it ok before she started. For example she noted had a bump or something on one eye. Then Dr came in and said it was so minor they had never mentioned it to me before. But there was no need to get me worried about it before Dr came in. Thought very strange. I assumed she was a normal assistant

My first eye exam at Legacy Devers Eyes Institute with Dr. Karen Rice and it was a positive experience.

Dr Rice is an exceptional provider and her assistant was very thorough. The only difficulty I had was convincing the screener that I needed Dr Rice's assessment of my worsening and concerning symptoms-as though gatekeeping is more important than patient care.

Karen Rice is my eye doctor. I have seen her for years. She is terrific. My biggest concern is if Regence and Legacy are unable to negotiate a resolution to an issue that affects all Regence members who rely on their Regence doctors and Karen is one of them.

Dr. Rice was booked out until April, but she reached out to me and got me in the week I scheduled as I needed new contact lens. Amazing and thank you!

I have seen Dr. Rice for many years; she knows my history and is always thorough, considerate, and helpful.

Dr. Rice is the best of the best. She had shown extreme levels of patience with me that I will forever be grateful for. We've been on a journey together and every time I leave with a smile on my face from being educated and cared for. Cris has been just as patient with me and educated me a lot on how to use and wear my contacts.Thank you so much!The receptionist there can be better. They tend to rush in the check ins when I've shown no signs I'm of being in a rush. I'm always willing to wait and give them the time they need so they're not rushing me. It's our job to arrive earlier than scheduled and we can wait if we're not there when we need to be.

Karen Rice and her team are always Great.

Once I was with the Dr, everything was excellent. Dealing with the woman at the check-in desk was not. She was unfriendly, unhelpful and generally surly. I waited about 5 minutes while she was on the phone. She finished her call and she immediately got up and went into the back. I gave up after about 10 minutes of waiting without any idea what she was doing. I came back and found her sitting at her desk, I approached the window and she said "I'm not ready for you yet". She finished her typing, called me back to the window, checked me in, and when done, she told me in the procedure is to wait at the sign until being called to the window. I told her I was waiting at the sign when she disappeared for a long time. She said she was helping someone else. Rude, dismissive, and unpleasant!

Dr. Rice is the best provider for my eyecare needs. I always look forward to seeing her and she remembers personal things about me and my family.

The assistant was great. the doctor not so much. Only swooped in at the end for two minutes to sign the paper. A bit condescending. Not impressed by Dr Rice

Karen is amazing. She took extra time to determine readers for the computer. She is also extremely thorough and very knowledgeable.

Best eye doctor ever!!

I know you have to do it but there was an intern there whom I saw first. It meant I really had 2 appointments because they both went over the same things

Dr. Karen Rice and her P.A. Cris helped me to find a medical contact lens fit that is improving my vision. They are knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. I really appreciate their expertise and am grateful for their support during a sometimes frustrating search for lenses that will help improve my vision. Big thanks to Dr. Rice and Cris

Dr Rice is amazing! I noticed that she takes time to review my history before she comes to see me, and she is always willing to answer any questions I have.
