John Rice PA-C
I am John Rice, an Asheville, North Carolina native. Before my professional career, I honorably served in the United States Navy.
I graduated with Distinction in Biology with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. From there, I received a Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in Healthcare Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I then pursued Physician Assistant training at Duke University School of Medicine where I graduated with a Master of Health Science degree. I was also awarded a doctoral degree in Medical Science from The University of Lynchburg.
I am humbled to have been selected as a National Health Service Corps Scholar and dedicated much of my career to underserved and vulnerable populations. I received multiple honors and recognition such as the prestigious Thomas D. Chang Clinical Preceptor of the Year Award for Alderson Broaddus University. In addition, I held an academic appointment as an adjunct faculty member with Alderson Broaddus University.
I have a special interest in pain management and was a founding provider of the pain management program for my former health-care system.
I enjoy attending concerts, sports, the arts, music, college football, and playing golf. I am the very proud and devoted father of a son, Ilan, who currently attends college.
