I met Dr. Rao in 2008 when I was diagnosed with a severe case of Uveitis throughout my entire right eye. Never having any problems with my vision, I was shocked to find out that this disease was leading to blindness for me. Dr. Rao was so compassionate and positive helping me with this emotional roller coaster; as well as being an extremely talented doctor and surgeon. He worked very closely and diligently with my other doctors watching my overall health. In fact, I went to John?s Hopkins in Bal

Dr. Rao is very skilled in his work. He evaluates things very thoroughly and explains things in an understandable way. He has a very gentle manor and yet is very direct in his communication. I feel like he is truly interested in me as a person! I have been seeing him as my retina specialist for 9 years and am so grateful for his level of care.
