Louisville, KY |
Started out okay, his assistant talked with me for several minutes getting history etc., she left 10 minutes later heard tell him everything we had discussed, he strolls in says we're going to do the three 'C's' of urology testing. Had The cytology done, Ct scan and the cystoscope scheduled but never got results from first two tests. Called asked for results and was told cytology was back but no Ct scan in my file. No results sent to me, I cancelled last test.

Office staff was unprofessional and condescending. After waiting 30 minutes past my appointment time, I went to the window to be sure I was there on the correct day. The lady at the window promptly handed me a form and said 'you need to sign this'. The problem with that was, it was someone else's paperwork. Doctor Rau and his MA were both very professional and caring. I had the same experience 3 years earlier and chose not to go back. However my primary care doctor urged me to reconsider.

The staff was beyond helpful. Dr. Rao was inappropriate, pushy, & does not take his patients needs into consideration. He does not take the time to explain what he will be doing and ask if the patient is comfortable. He made my spouse and I feel very uncomfortable and unwelcomed. Do not expect sympathy nor an apology from this doctor. His bedside manner is bleak at best.

Took my elderly aunt in as she was Had a catheter put in at nursing home. He came in room and talked to us but never examined her. Never touched her. I have never seen a doctor .that did not perform an exam. Will not go back. The nurse took out catheter and we left. Hell the nursing home could have done this much. Totally uncalled for.

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.
