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 his patients which, often times, leads to less prescription medicines. He has also completed coursework and certifications through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
