I had gone thru years of e.r visits and dr. visits with no clue of what was wrong with me..I was so broken and at wits end when I was referred to Dr.Rao and I was immediately comforted and he had a plan of action and within hrs. we finally got our answer..interstitial cystitis of the bladder ,the diagnosis was 100% correct and he referred me to an excellent pain management Dr. and it is amazing. While I am still trying to manage this horrible disease I am comforted in knowing Dr.Rao is there.

Dr. Rao is the best in his field. His level of expertise, his outstanding care and concern for the patient and the patient's family is far above and beyond expectations. Dr. Rao walks the journey with his patients throughout the entire healing process. Cannot say enough good about this wonderful man.

I waited for an hour in an examining room and Dr. Rao never showed up. As I was leaving an administrator of some kind said, Oh, I can make you next. In other words, had I not left the examining room I could have been there all day. This was my second appointment with Dr. Rao. During the first appointment, I didn't get to see the doctor. A woman who didn't identify herself as a nurse or nurse practitioner or, for that matter, secretary, gave me a rectal exam and that was it. No Dr. Rao.
