I can not say enough about Dr. Rao & his staff. They have been taking care of my son for a while now who recently has had to have an emergency surgery. They are great at following up & even call to see how he is doing. They take walk ins I've never waited more than 15 mins, they will talk to you on...more

My experience with Dr. Rao was extremely poor. He forgot immunizations repeatedly, ordered the wrong medications (once ordered pills for my infant) and delayed making referrals to necessary specialists out of sheer laziness. I can't say enough how much I regret going to Dr. Rao.
