he is terrible doctor - He made me get a yearly (4yrs in a row) CT Scan WITH CONTRAST which is the worst you can do to someone WITH ONLY ONE KIDNEY. I questioned why when my prior urologist did not prescribe with contrast dye and he said "So I can see better." He almost destroyed my remaining kidney. He does not like being asked any questions

I have been going to Dr.Rao for approximately 2 years, basically for preventive measures. Had a kidney stone pass, and that is how I ended up in his office. Have been seeing him every six months , x-ray for stones, check PSA and prostate. Have been very pleased with every aspect of the care I am getting. I would recommend Dr.Rao to anyone in need of a Urologist.

Arrogant, condescending, and supercilious individuals I have ever met. I made the mistake of asking him why I had to wait in the cubicle for 1 hour 47 minutes and he flew off the handle. You aren't the only patient I have and if you don't like to wait then there's the door. Don't dare disagree with him. Would not recommend to anyone! If you had a -star that is what he would get.

He's junk. Waited 1 hour 47 minutes and asked him why and he got all over my case. You're not the only patient I have. Cancelled future appointments with this "JERK". Just because he had a BAD day he should NOT take it out on his patient.
