Dr. Rao not only exhibits his professionalism and knowledge but also his genuine caring for your health. He is truly a wonderful doctor in every way possible.

I went to Dr. Rao five years ago with fatigue. After extensive testing , within two days he arranged for me to have a angiogram. I ultimately had three stents. If it wasn't for Dr. Rao's expertise and pro active manner I could have had a major heart attack. I trust Dr. Rao 100%. He is an extremely knowledgeable and a very caring individual. Les Sokoloff

Two years ago when I moved from New York to Naples, Florida I was concerned in finding a Cardiologist who met all of my requirements. My Cardiologist in NY is from Columbia Presbyterian and he is what medical professionals there considered "one of their best"! After diligent research and networking Dr. Sajan Rao was highly recommended. Dr. Rao's experience, intellect, professionalism and compassion for his patients far exceeded my expectations. It is a privilege to be a patient of Dr. Rao.

I have been seeing Dr. Rao for the last several years and consider him excellent. He is trained in both internal medicine and his specialty of cardiology and is knowledgeable about current research and new developments in the cardiology. He carefully listens to his patients and provides the best of care.

After spending 20 years as a Healthcare Administrator and having the experience of being Director of Patient Relations and interacting with many doctors during that time I realize that a patient needs to find a physician that combines professional care and concern with a personal touch. Dr. Sajan Rao has those qualities. He was recommended by my Nephrologist and Dr. Rao far exceeds the praise of his peers. If you need an excellent Cardiologist, call Dr. Rao for a consultation.

Dr. Rao is one of the best medical providers I've encountered. He will thoroughly explain everything - from your condition to testing to medication (pluses and minuses) to lifestyle changes. His demeanor is professional yet he remains approachable. He will actually listen to your comments and will take them into consideration when making recommendations. I only regret that he is not a primary physician! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Rao to anyone needing a cardiologist.
