He was very nice to me and to my very sick mother. Dr. Rao was very patient with us and answered our questions. He explained things in terms we could understand. Mother had a very bad lung disease but she never smoked. Dr. Rao explained everything and helped Mother a lot. I would definitely Have him treat me or any of my family.
