I recently developed an acute abdominal pain which I initially ignored. After about a week or so, I developed additional symptoms. The front desk lady was very professional and got me scheduled quickly. I showed up without all relevant papers, she granted me exceptions seeing that I was in great discomfort. The Doctor was very compassionate and knowledgeable. Talking to her took away most of my anxiety and by the time she explained the plan of action. I strongly recommend this office to all pts

Everyone in the office, from Yazmina (receptionist) to Nurse Paula and Dr. Rao showed genuine care and compassion in handling the patient. They took time (not rushing through the appointment) to examine all issues and complaints and developed a sound plan of treatment and follow-up.

The MD and her office staff cannot figure out how to open a document from a pharmacy so I am now out of my medication refill.
