About Us
Lifewellness Institute was born of necessity.
Tired of practicing medicine confined by the limits of insurance and managed care, Dr. Rice envisioned a patient centered practice, with the right experts, providing a level of care that would change lives and make people well. A pioneer in the field of wellness, Dr. Rice was ahead of his time.  Lifewellness Institute was a labor of love for Lee and his wife Mary, and this love is evident in every aspect of the clinic and the care provided. We are family, sports, functional and preventive medicine providers,  with a focus on lifestyle medicine for the entire family.  Experts in addressing complex problems of aging, we care for multiple family generations, athletes young and old, and provide executive wellness and corporate wellness programs. 
Employee Wellness
Healthy employees are happy employees. Our successful employee lifestyle programs deliver increased engagement and improvement in employee health, time and again.  All education is provided by our clinical team which includes specialists in medicine, exercise,...
