Dr Rao was lovely. She has a warm spirit and really listened. Her presence made me feel at ease. Her approach was detailed and methodical. If you have a fear of doctors, you wont with her. I feel grateful that she was assigned to my case.

Excellent oncologist - Very knowledgeable and easy to talk with.. Does a great job explaining how your cancer works and how they plan to attack it, what the choices are, and why she recommends a specific approach versus another approach.. Great bedside manner - and she has a great team. Highly recommend!
