Dr. Rao is incredible: caring, competent, takes the time to explain. I couldn't have asked for more or better in an oncologist. She patiently answered all my questions and gave me the time to think through my decisions. She also worked seamlessly with the other physicians treating me, and is highly respected by them. I recommend her without hesitation. I am alive today because of her.

Dr. Rao and her team provided clear analysis of my treatment options, was compassionate with the difficult choices and questions posed by myself and my husband, and has been thorough and responsive in follow up questions we have had, with most being answered within a day. She is on top of current treatment options and aggressive in prompting needed next steps.
