Philosophy of Care

I believe in providing timely, compassionate care that meets the patient’s needs. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I’m also huge proponent of lifestyle changes. Depending on the patient’s interests — exercise, nutrition, personal growth, and development — I like to help them achieve their individual health goals.

Interests

Medical Interests

Since our care is so focused on patients, I’m a strong advocate for empowering them to learn more about their medical history and take more of a proactive approach to the care they receive. Additionally, I’ve taken a special interest in managing chronic care, such as diabetes and hypertension.

Personal Interests

If I can’t be outside hiking Mt. Rainier, you’ll likely find me inside on the treadmill, or crocheting or reading. Given the fickle nature of our weather, I’m prepared either way.

Reviews

Patient Ratings and Comments

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Given the short time the dr. is allowed with a patient, I believe there is no other dr. for me.

Julie is the most thorough, compassionate, straight forward care provider I have ever had. She listens carefully, uses common sense, and has a lovely sense of humor. It is obvious she really cares for her patients!

It is sometimes difficult seeing Julie because she is so busy but I usually wait because I prefer seeing her. Her nurse is wonderful. very kind, gentle and fun. She was training someone on my last visit who was also very nice.

Julie and her team are very responsive to my questions and concerns. They are sensitive and just really wonderful to be around. I never feel rushed. They welcome my husband sitting in on my visits as well as my sitting in on his visits.

The clinic [...] still does not have enough positions so other than a regular appointment it's hard to get in for an emergency and I have a young son they cannot get a physician in the immediate area because you're not taking on any new clients with only the one physician in the building

Don't like the amount of time Julie has to use to put stuff in the computer. I know she has to do that, but it takes away time to really talk with her. a 20 minute health check up is too short. I love gooing to Julie, but it seems she is overbooked. You need more Health care people in the clinic. Her nurse is great, but has to spend more time on the computer.

I have always felt very comfortable and at ease when visiting my care provider. I always feel better when leaving. I gladly drive the distance to see her rather than find one closer to me. I've been doing it for over eleven years now.

It takes TWO months to see her. At my age, that's not good.

When I enter this clinic I feel respected. The reception ladies are courteous, and knowledgeable. Dr. Julie Rice is amazing! She knows me, remembers my preferences and respects my aspect for my care.
