Dr. Cory Rice graduated from Baylor University with a bachelor’s degree in forensic science and then completed medical school at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. He attended Methodist Medical Center of Dallas for his internship and residency in Internal Medicine. He was chosen as Chief Resident of his Internal Medicine residency program during his final year. He spent two years in outpatient traditional Internal Medicine (including inpatient work in critical care and hospitalist medicine) before he and his medical partner opened a private practice after identifying a profound need for a more directed focus on prevention and wellness as it related to outpatient medicine. He now puts food first in virtually all of his medical recommendations and is continually amazed at the power of nutrition as it relates to improving function in the body and ultimately restoring health to their patients which, often times, leads to less prescription medicines.
Dr. Rice’s professional interests include nutrition based chronic disease management as well as bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women. His main focus in his offices is on wellness and prevention, nutrition, therapeutic lifestyle change and appropriate hormone balancing for men and women. His practice is a blend of both functional and lifestyle medicine.
Dr. Rice has been featured on local television as well as local and national radio to discuss a wide range of health care topics, including obesity in adults and children, healthy eating, healthy exercise and lifestyle medicine. He remains actively involved in the education of young trainees and established healthcare practitioners on the benefits of lifestyle medicine as it relates to patient care and 21st century chronic disease. Dr. Rice frequently mentors in-state and out of state physicians from a variety of specialties looking to implement a similar treatment philosophy at their respective practice(s).
Dr. Rice was one of six physicians elected to a two-year term on BioTE Medical’s Advisory Board starting in 2015. He has also been certified as a physician mentor through BioTE Medical, a leading provider of natural hormone replacement therapy using subcutaneous pellets, where he helps certified health care providers on the use of bio-identical pellets for both men and women.
