Dr. Rao's staff was incredible; very helpful and accommodating. When I met Dr. Rao it was apparent that he was very knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. I was very anxious about having surgery as I have panic attacks when I can't breathe through my nose. He was very understanding and patient with me, and did everything he could to keep me comfortable after my procedure. I am so glad I did it. It went very smoothly! Dr. Rao is a great surgeon and a really pleasant man.
