    I am a caregiver who who works with a slice of the population who depends on a psychiatrist to be able to function. Left msgs because of patient concerns with new meds, and got no response until I called back 2 days later. Told to take the patient to the hospital for evaluation more than once. Have little confidence in this Dr to truly care for the individuals I work with. Been going to Dr Rau for 6 months, will not be back. In my opinion, patient care is poor.

    Scheduling: Easy. I called presumably when the office was closed and left a voicemail on a Friday. Was called back on Monday and scheduled an appointment for the same week. Visit: A lot of patients in and out. Scheduled for 9:30am seen almost an hour later. She was very thorough and asked questions and allowed me to ask questions. Great first visit in my opinion.
