Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Rao has wonderful bedside manner, I really felt she listened to me and included me in my son’s treatment. The staff are also caring and friendly. Not to mention how impossible it is to get an appointment with a pediatric neurologist and she saw me within a week of my call! Highly recommend.

I did not care for her bedside manner which was dismissive and judge mental. She is green and needs to learn to listen to the PARENT!
