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.
