I have been seeing Dr.Rao for over 2 years since she took over for my former GI doctor. Even after seeing her on a regular basis it still amazes me how thorough she is with each and every visit. She spends much time in making sure that every aspect of my GI issues are covered in detail and instruction on minimizing symptoms and avoiding potential problems are well understood.. I feel very lucky to have found her..

I am a patient of Dr. Rao and all I can say is that she is an exceptional GI Dr who is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions which made me feel very comfortable and confident in her. I have had an upper GI scope and colonoscopy and both procedures went very well without any complications! Her office staff and hospital staff are very courteous and know their job duties and are very very caring. I rate Dr. Rao and staff 110% in everything and if you need a GI dr shes the one for u

Dr. Rao made me feel so at ease. She answered all my questions and really gave me a personal type treatment as if I'd known her for a long time. She was very caring and kind and made sure all bases were covered. I am very pleased to have been referred to her by my pcp. I will definitely go back to her. I had no issues after my procedure and she gave me a thorough follow up. Nice to be treated like a person and not ushered in and out like many doctors do.

This was my second Colonoscopy, and first with Dr. Rao. She was a recommended Gastroenterologist. by my Family Doctor so I had no past experience with her. She was very approachable about procedure questions and concerns. I felt very comfortable during each consult. Procedure went very well considering I had a few unusual factors to use caution over. I will definitely recommend her to friends-family. Staff was amazing as well.

Outstanding and totally recommended. John W. Boston- Patient

My wife & I are holdovers from Dr. Policastro and were very sad to see him retire. Dr. Rao has filled his shoes nicely. She is knowledgable, patient, thorough, and has a great personality. We will be keeping her as our dr. for as long as we are on this earth.

Dr. Rao is an intelligent, bright, genuine, and efficient gastroenterologist. Her personality is that of a friend that I have known all my life. Her knowledge is razor sharp, her patient plan is sensible and accurate. She always gives me the time I need to explain my symptoms, I never feel rushed.. She is trustworthy and I am recommending her to my family and friends if they need to see a Gastroenterologist.

Dr. Rao is a wonderful doctor who takes her time with each patient and explains every detail about anything that needs to be explained. I had an endoscopy done and she explained everything she did and even gave me pictures so I could visually see what she was describing. She has been so great with helping me get everything back on track and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Gastrointestinal specialist.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Rao to anyone I know. Dr. Rao is very friendly, not to mention thorough. I never feel like I'm just another patient she is trying to rush through; Dr. Rao took the time to get every detail about my symptoms and family history. After my procedures, Dr. Rao explained the findings, results, and treatment plan in detail. You are also given a printed summary after your visit so you have all the information. Each visit has been a positive experience.

Dr. Rao was pleasant and highly professional during the examination, procedure, and post procedure process. She was very knowledgeable about all possible concerns related to my procedures (throat scope and colonoscopy) and the results and answered all my questions in a easily understood manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Rao to anyone with Gastroenterology concerns.
