What People Say About Dr. Mohan Rao, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Was sent to ENT Associates by my family physician. After he screwed up and schedule me with the pediatric ENT, Dr. Rao had the next first available appointment. While I wouldn't call Dr. Rao warm and fuzzy, he was thorough, straightforward, and deeply concerned for my well-being. He went the extra mile to get me a prescription to carry me through to my appointment with an endocrinologist a month later. I'm very grateful for Dr. Rao.

Dr Rao is a fantastic Doctor. He has a great bedside manner, he is right to the point and doesn't surgar coat things. I like how honest and caring he is. If you don't wanna know the truth then don't see him. He is absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend. He was very gentle with my vocal cord check. I was in and out in no time. Thank you once again.

He was very rude! Worst doctor I have ever met! All he did was belittle me, not help me. He was very inappropriate, and made me feel very uncomfortable! Very disappointing, and first time ever that I've left a doctor's appointment in tears!

In the early 90, Dr Roa saw my kids at Matthew 25. And this speaks on his character. He is very good with children. In 2012 he saved my life.

Dr. Rao was awesome. Went to redi med on Saturday because of an ear infection. Three days later and my ear infection wasn’t getting better. Saw Rao and had so much relief within 12 hours. He was super understanding and helpful. Also has a good sense of humor :)

Dr. Rao has been handling my spasmodic dysphonia (vocal chord spasms) for a few years now. He does the botox injection into the vocal chords to help me with my voice. He does a great job and I would recommend him to anyone needing an ENT.

The rudest doctor ever. Has no compassion and is terrible working with kids. Would not want him working with anybody's kids.
