If you ask Dr. Lee Rice, Lifewellness Institute was born of necessity. Tired of practicing medicine confined by the limits of insurance and managed care, Dr. Rice yearned for something different.  He envisioned a patient centered practice with the right experts providing the time and attention capable of 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. Creating 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. Experts in family, sports, functional and preventive medicine, our practice focuses on lifestyle medicine for the entire family. Our patients span multiple family generations, include athletes young and old, and we provide support for all stages of life. We also provide psychiatry, address complex problems of aging, and provide executive wellness programs.

We believe prevention is the foundation for health, and understanding how to practice key lifestyle habits can prevent the development of many modern  diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Working with you, our team will help you adopt healthier lifestyle habits that best fit your goals and needs. Like a trusted family member, always encouraging, always supportive, we’ll tell it to you straight and be your guide to making the health care choices you feel best for you.
