Dr Rao is THE BEST ob/gyn. He is so caring and makes me feel very comfortable when visiting for annual exams. He was my doctor throughout my first pregnancy and labor and delivery were a breeze thanks to him. I had no complications baby was out in 5 minutes and I was feeling no different afterwards. If you are pregnant, choose him!!!
Run from this guy ! If you have good insurance he will make up reasons to bring you back. Multiple Pap smears , breast exams ! Total scammer !
