What People Say About Dr. Babu Rao, MD
Reply
I can't recommend Dr Rao highly enough. I have been to many other doctors for my condition and he was the first to actually listen to me. Both he and his staff are very caring and competent. I really trust what he says and I have had great experiences with him. Highly recommend.
