I wish that I had a way to follow-up prior to the next appointment. It is very difficult to get in with Dr. Rico and I have residual questions that will have to wait until I see her again in a few months. I am not aware of a pt portal where I can ask questions, but that would be a great resource.

excellent physician. she spent as much time as I needed to make sure I had all my questions answered and she never seemed rushed even though I'm sure she had plenty of patients to see. we felt like her only pts at that moment and that is a great feeling. very knowledgeable also. nobody was able to tell us how to treat our daughters problem and she fixed it almost instantly

This dr was amazing! I get dysregulated when I don't feel like a dr is listening, and this was totally not the case. the dr made eye contact, listened intently, had looked at the pictures and read the chart. she explained the best course of treatment, and validated my concerns.

Whenever I hear of anyone searching for a children's dermatologist, I refer them to Dr. Rico. We LOVE that you always see a "doctor" at this practice & I tell everyone that she is well worth the drive from Melbourne.
