HealthEast Clinic - Rice Street

Our award-winning clinicians believe the doctor/patient relationship is a special bond, and treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve.

HealthEast Clinic - Rice Street

The Rice Street Clinic's medical service began in 1924 when Dr. Lewis Bouma opened his office on Rice Street. Medical technology has made huge leaps since Dr. Bouma hung out his shingle, but some things have remained as he would have wished: a culturally diverse clinic, neighborly atmosphere, attentive staff and prompt, courteous service.
