Dr Rao took time from her Friday before personnal week to see me. She decicated her time to helping me understand my steps to take. Her firmness gave me a better degree of truth to my Invasive Lobular Carcinoma. A term I couldn't even say ... She will tell you the truth & inform you of her knowledge. I was pleased with my visit before surgery.

My 83yo mother was too ill to attend her appointment with Dr. Rao and she kindly kept the appointment, met with my husband and I (as I am her POA). Dr. Rao was truly phenomenal. Her professionalism, excellent explanation, and assistant in planning were all absolutely amazing. She is a VERY special human being.

So Happy I saw Dr. Rao. Having recently being diagnosed with Cll I had many unanswered questions, she spent over an hour with me and broke down the disease in simple terms that anyone could understand. Her staff was more than friendly and would recommend anyone with issues to see her as her knowledge was extremely impressive.

Dr. Rao is the best. She listens and knows her stuff. She has been treating me since I had a pulmonary embolism from a blood clot 8 years ago. She has also gone abpve and beyond to help me with other health issues. She is very thorough & exceedingly pleasant. I would recommend no one else.

Dr Rao is terrific. She listens, and answers any questions, and I have complete confidence in her. The staff is equally terrific. They are on top of everything.. meds, appts, call backs, what ever makes an office work seamlessly. I can't say enough about knowing I am in the best hands!

I have been a patient of Dr. Rao for about 3 years. I came to her with a pre-existing condition. Dr. Rao’s care and her proactive measures are exemplary and caring. The staff that she has is also very caring. I couldn’t have asked for a better Oncologist. She always make me feel that I will get through. She’s direct and honest, without being brash.

I truly recommend Dr. Rao. I especially admire the thought she puts in to my care and develops an individualized plan for me. She closely watches my daily tests and will implement a change if needed. I feel confident Dr. Rao is doing her best in assisting my fight with stage 4 cancer.

Most incredible Doctor and saved my life. In May 2016 she found that I had lung cancer and called in a incredible thoracic surgeon Dr. Widmann to become part of the team. On June th 2016 I underwent surgery to remove part of my right lung ( which we found out later that it was synovial sarcoma). Without her devotion to her patient, I would not be here today! She also always took the time to contact my son when he had questions. I would not be here today without her!

Dr.Rao and everyone at ACOHA have all been wonderful in there approach to my husbands cancer care. Everything was very clearly explained to us about his condition and course of treatment. Every single person who helped us through this journey were very patient, kind , understanding and extremely efficient. They understood the fear a cancer diagnosis causes and knew just how to calm our fears. We are so thankful for all the doctors, nurses, np"s and receptionist who help us along the way.

Great front desk, unprofessional clinical staff. To much joking where my blood was drawn and the Dr took very long to come in and see me. They had staff member come in the room with me and consult with me to i guess make up for the time that the Dr took to not come in and see me
