Hello, as an oncologist my goal is always to provide individualized, caring attention to each patient. I understand that cancer diagnosis and treatment are life-altering events and require great care, so I am sorry to hear of your impressions. If you would be willing, I would like to invite you to get in touch with our patient services manager, Cheryl Gentzler, to discuss this further: 559-447-4930. Thank you, Dr. Rao

Very knowledgeable and intelligent oncologist. Long wait times to see him a serious problem (30 to 90-minutes each visit). His manner generally lacks warmth, which limits his ability to provide compassionate care.
