Learn about Dr. Rao

Care Philosophy

Like a lot of people, my family has been affected by coronary artery disease. Seeing my grandparents suffer from it motivated me to want to take up medicine and be in a field where I could help others deal with this disease. I specialize in interventional cardiology, and what I appreciate most is the ability to collaborate with the 30 physicians that we have here at CHI St. Vincent.  Each one has their own expertise; some of my colleagues specialize in electrophysiology, some specialize in heart failure and some specialize in non-invasive cardiology and we work together to provide the best care to the patient. It's a privilege to be a part of a team where I can bring my expertise and my experience in helping patients get better. Growing up, it's what I dreamed of doing.
