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.
