My recent visit was awsome. Pre-appointment reminders - awsome. Check in process - awsome. Wait time before appointment - awsome. Call who took me back and worked me up before seeing doctor - awsome. Doctor visit - awsome. So glad I have this practice as part of my health team.

Dr. Rao made made me feel like I was apart of her family. She was very concerned. She asked me every question possible and allowed me to ask questions and tell her my concern. She made sure I was talking the right medication and told what I needed to stop taking do to my health. And I am so grateful for that because the medication I stopped made a difference. Her office staff is always very friendly as well.
