My mom has been a patient for many years and Dr. Rao has demonstrated care and concern at each of her visits. My sisters and I, as well as my father, attend each appointment and Dr Rao has listened to each of our questions/concerns and has never made us feel like we don't have a say regarding my moms care. I highly recommend Dr Rao to any one in need of services. Thank you, Dr. Rao for your care and concern for my mom and as well for her family.

Dr. Roa was my wife's doctor for a few years. Several years ago when they company merged with CCare it all when down hill. He changed 100%. We felt like we were no longer a patience just a $$$$$ for them. We have spoken to several of his patiences and they say the same thing. Cancer is a life changing experience that you should feel that your Dr really care. NO SO WITH HIM.............

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.

He is a liar. Extreme one dimensional shallow mindset. Numbers and charts only. Will not consider any other facts vital to diagnosis. A fresno doctor for reason. Refuse to refer us to more competent and diverse help on a very unique problem. Over his head. Took advantage of my excellent insurance , kept us in hospital 5 days longer than needed or $10,000. St agnes and Rao The problem
