Dr Rao is a very good reconstructive surgeon. He was part of a team of surgeons who worked together to bring me back to good health. Dr Rao is a very personable young man with a wealth of experience. His office runs on time and his staff is very friendly. I would recommend him for any plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery

Scammers, thief, disorganized and dishonest. They don't pay their bills so they make you pay for it. They tell you different stories every time. The procedures got messed up that I had to go to another doctor to fix it.
