When I first started seeing Dr. Rao I was quite impressed with the efficiency and concern from the doctor and her staff. I took a while to schedule the biopsy and the bone marrow biopsy but now they ordered a pet scan/CT scan and wishing to be having all kinds of difficulty trying to get that scheduled. After numerous phone calls on my part to insurance company for Dr. Rao‘s office to her staff and finally getting angry and talking to the office manager to find out that their incompetence is unbelievable. After waiting for a phone call for the pet scan and waiting and waiting finally I started making phone calls and there seems to be no appointment made no doctors orders to have it done but yet here I am with cancer and there seems to be no concern from this doctors office whatsoever. I have finally told him today enough is enough. I am tired of the incompetence and hopefully I can find Someone who can do the job and possibly keep me alive a little bit longer. Complete incompetence.

I wish all the doctors were as nice as she is. She is very professional and she takes her time to explain your condition and what it is you need to do to make your illness better. Dr. Rao is one of the best doctors that I have.

8 reviews?·?7 photos 5 days ago A family member of mine is seen here and have been treated with care and respect. Dr. Rao is very knowledgeable and explains every step of the way and does not make anyone feel as if they were a burden. It may be a long wait, however, that shows she tries to give her undivided attention to her patients. I would prefer someone that would take a while because she is more about our health than she is with the quantity of the patients. Most doctors are in and out because they try to see as many patients as they can within an hour or so and hand them off to someone else. Which do you prefer, fast or more efficient? I prefer efficient. This is our health we are talking about.

Dr. Rao and her staff are very friendly and helpful. They go out of their way for us. They keep me informed and always let me know in a way I can understand about any changes in my treatment or if my blood work comes back abnormal. I brag about Dr. Rao and Reylin, her NP . They are always on top of things. I am deeply grateful for my care here.It has been several years since my diagnosis and it feels like I have an extended family.
