We have been going to see Dr Rao for the past 15+ years. What impressed me most is that she takes the time to listen to you and your needs for your children and as the kids of gotten older she listens to them as well. She gives great advice. I have had four children and they all love going to see the doctor. The office staff is great. No matter what I have needed whether it be a little thing or an emergency they have all been extremely helpful.
