He has a BS in Human Biology and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1988. He did his internship at the Whittier Health Center. Dr. von Rice’s background also includes acupuncture, clinical nutrition counseling, and sports related injuries. As an asthmatic child, he spent a lot of time in the traditional medical model and always hated being just another number to whoever was treating him. “I always hated the doctor that hid behind his tie and lab coat and wouldn’t answer my questions.” Dr. von Rice’s relaxed demeanor and office atmosphere help ease the patient’s concerns but it doesn’t mean he takes their healthcare lightly. “My patients get treated the same way I would want my mom or dad treated by any of their doctors.”
