I contacted Dr. Rao with an urgent request - I was in the office an hour and a half later. I complained of a tickle in my chest that was producing a cough with mucus. I was 30 weeks pregnant and she told me it was allergies and to take allergy medicine. Fast forward just five days and I'm in urgent care, same symptoms. They run bloodwork, and chest exray and send me to the ER where I'm then admitted overnight with pneumonia-while pregnant! Cost $800! Dr roa and she didn't care.Warning!!!

After searching for several years to find the right MD, we found Dr. Rao, who is tops! She is a great clinician, takes time to REALLY listen, is easy to talk to, has a great sense of humor, and treats her patients with respect and courtesy. Her approach to treatment is generally conservative with emphasis on prevention. She does not hesitate to refer to a specialist when necessary. Her availability and responsiveness to email is outstanding.

Feeling cheated. some tests were performed as part of preventive visit, which were clearly marked as not covered on the insurance document which were handed over to the doctor at time of appointment.(and clearly mentioned no such tests to be performed) Waiting on a resolution for past 4 months, hard to get a response of any kind.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
