If you are looking for one of the best in the Cardiology field, then look no farther than Dr. Rao. He has been my doctor since 2005 an if it had not been for him, I may not be here today. He spends all the time needed with his patients, which means other patients may have an extended wait time to see him, but I and others I have talked with do not mind the wait. Sometimes an hour to two hours after appointment time.

Dr Rao is very sensitive to the feelings of his patients. He listens to you completely and listens to your symptoms before he starts any type of examination. He explains health issues in a way that a layman can grasp the meaning.
