In June 2016 I was diagnosed with Non-hodgkins Lymphoma. Dr. Rao was referred to me from the diagnosing doctor. Within 14 hours, she was meeting with us. Our first meeting lasted almost 2 hours as she explained the disease, treatment and side effects. She is absolutely wonderful - brilliant, compassionate and warm. I was in remission as she promised within 5 months. Her staff of nurses, technicians and administration make you feel that you are part of a family. Love her!

I seriously hit the jackpot when I met Dr. Rao! She understood and immediately knew the REASON for my unusual case of mild iron deficiency anemia which puzzled countless other doctors over the past 2 yrs. She explained her thoughts by taking the time to draw diagrams. Dr. Rao is thorough, patient, kind, sincere, compassionate, and seriously brilliant. She also has a vibrant personality! Thanks to Dr. Rao I will receive the proper treatment so I can finally stay awake during the day!

Dr Rao is compassionate, confident and experienced in treatment of cancer. She takes her time, explains your condition, outlines the plan and answers all questions. She is a strong proponent of integrated medicine. Her staff is superb in supporting all of your needs. The doctor's office, lab, infusion center and pharmacy are all in the same building. Dr. Rao takes the stress out of chemotherapy and allows you to heal and live a good life. She is wonderful. I am grateful to be her patient

I was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer in October, 2015. I was referred to Dr. Rao by my thoracic surgeon. On my very first visit, a patient told me that they perform miracles here and I quickly found out that the statement was a fact. Dr. Rao is an accomplished, visionary Oncologist. She is fully aware of all the different types of treatments available and makes the best choices for her patients. What sets Dr. Rao above the rest is her genuine compassion. I just love her.
in Union NJ |
Almost 3 years ago she diagnosed me with stage 4 breast cancer & had a collapsed vertibrae in my spine. She told me that she was going to take care of me & was going to lead a long priductive life. I went through radiation, chemo & physical therapy for my spine. Dr. Rao's staff is amazing ... & everyone knows your name. They still to this day go out of their way to ALWAYS make me feel comfortably & like family. My recovery is a true miracle & couldn't have fone it without Dr Rao & her staff!
in Lakewood, NJ |
Dr. Rao saved my life. I was admitted to St. Barnabas ER, unbeknownst to me with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I was critical & didn't have much time...left lung filling with fluid, unable to breath, lymph nodes swollen. I had no idea what was happening. Dr. Rao was amazing! She was FAST ACTING, CONFIDENT, REASSURING... everything my family and I needed to get through those 1st difficult days. She diagnosed me and got me to a place that could help me. I'm almost 2yr in remission! THANK YOU!
