I hate leaving negative reviews, but I feel like it is my obligation for this practice. Try and steer clear, nice only gets you so far and they were all nice. Medically was a different story. I was lead down the wrong path and it has not turned out well. There has been no acknowledgment or remorse. I will not be stepping foot back in this office.

Dr. Rao is the best doctor bar none!! I have been a patient of hers since she opened in springfield. Originally I was seeing her for anemia which she fixed. When I went for a mammogram in 2014 they told me I would need an oncologist thank God I already had her. She made having cancer and chemo almost pleasant, between her and her staff I knew I would be fine and I am! Highly recommend and wish more doctors were like Dr. Rao

Knowledgeable and Compassionate Doctor Since my first visit, Dr. Rao has put my mind at ease. She talked to me about how she was going to treat my condition and not to worry. She called me over the weekend to check and make sure I was okay. Where do you find physicians like this in today’s society? She is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend her to new patients. She also gave me an excellent referral. Her office staff, nurses, and lab department are great.

This was my first visit with Dr. Rao. She was awesome! Right from the start she put me at ease and explained everything using diagrams and information sheets so that I knew exactly what was going to happen and what I should have on hand when I start my chemotherapy. I felt very confident that I choose the best oncologist to treat my cancer.

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.
