Biography

Tace Rico, MD, is a board-certified dermatologist and lead physician at AdventHealth Medical Group's pediatric dermatology practice in Orlando. An award-winning physician and scholar, she specializes in treating children with birthmarks, hemangiomas, port wine stains and scars. She is an expert in laser surgery to address skin conditions and is very sensitive to the concerns of young people with various dermatological disorders. Working with multiple different lasers, she is one of the few dermatologists in the southeast providing laser treatments for scars including burn scars. A graduate of the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine where she was tapped for her distinction in research, she remained at that school for her dermatology residency and a highly specialized fellowship training in dermatitis and pediatric patch testing that sets her apart from most other physicians in her field.

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.

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.

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
