Dr. Gundu Rao's Care Philosophy

Practice Philosophy: Dr. Gundu Rao believes in accurate identification of the root cause of symptoms, as opposed to mere treatment of symptoms. She likes to focus on preventative health, as some of the endocrine disorders can certainly be prevented, if the risk factors are identified early (for example obesity related complications). She is certain that the best clinical outcomes for the patients are achieved by inputs from a team, which includes patients themselves, physicians and other providers like dieticians, nutritionists or educators.

Patient Comments (1)
in Front Royal, VA |
As a new patient, I ended up not seeing this doctor. The first call I made to make a new patient appointment I was put into voicemail and never called back. When I called back to make an appointment the wait was six weeks out. I scheduled then was called by office staff and told it had to be moved because the doctor has decided to no longer work mornings, I rescheduled (pushed out another month). Today I was called and told I needed to change again for the already changed date. Poor office Staff
