Grand Blanc, MI |
Dr. Rao was kind, gentle and thorough. Her office staff is warm and courteous.
in Flushing, MI |
Dr. Rao is possibly one of the worst Dr's I've been to. She has poor bedside manor to be polite, she talks about her patients, stating in front of me if the lady wasn't 600 lbs she wouldnt have back issues, just to be clear the lady was plus size but no where near 600lbs. I had debilitating back pain from a cervical cortisone injection and the next day I was not able to get out of bed. This lasted 3 days. Her office assured me its normal, spoke to others who were hospitalized,also no exolination

zero stars. If you're reading these reviews, listen because they all tell the same story. She treated my (very sharp/active) elderly mother extremely rudely. She also denigrated her surgeon, who has an excellent reputation and bedside manner. Extremely unprofessional.

I would leave zero stars if I could. Seen her today very unprofessional and doesn't listen. Wanted to do everything I already have had done. She got very loud and said my previous doctor was a quack. Would not recommend to my worse enemy!!

She always looks disheveled. She is rude and abrupt. I stopped getting injections because I left there in tears. Went back because famiky Dr wont Rx pain meds. She stated since you refuse injections i wont give you pain meds. Lose weight ang walk outside more! I have RA and extreme migraines. Plus was auto accident. She looks like she does all the meds her patients ask for smh!

She treats me likes I am a drug addict, doesn't listen to my concerns, minimizes pain and medical issues.
I concur that this physician does not listen when a patient is relaying their area(s) of concern. In addition, her hands on assessment was a farce. It seems that she favors lumbar puncture, and regardless of reason for patient visit, tries to derive an indication for such. Further, the general impression of the office was very unclean and the odor of cigarette smoke was overwhelming (seemingly contributed to by office staff returning from lunch). Lastly, patient face sheets exposed 4 others 2C
The worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. She don't listen to you, she has a very bad and unprofessional attitude. This doctor yelled at me and showed me that she does not care about anyone that comes to see her.
She refuses to listen to her patients concerns and questions.,She becomes argumentative. She didnt describe the procedure well or inform the patient when she was giving injections!!
