Having worked in HC for 30 years, I did my homework and interviewed 10 plastic surgeons and their offices. Every step of the way, the folks at CPS outdid their competition. From the front desk to the clinical interaction and followup, everything was top notch. After my procedure, the great service continued and I have remarkable results. I am scheduled for another procedure this spring.

Dr. Rao and the staff were great from start to finish. I needed surgery and needed it done quickly and Dr. Rao was able to make that happen, stress free. Now that I'm fully healed I am very pleased with the results, I highly recommend Dr. Rao

Dr. Rao is simply amazing. I had a prodedure done a few months ago that was a very sensitive, personal decision. Dr. Rao’s bedside manner, kindness and expertise immediately put me at ease. I couldn’t be happier with my results!

Dr. Rao was incredibly profession and kind during our consultation. His office is beautiful and the staff is super friendly and accommodating. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Rao. He is so respectful and offers great advice based on his expert medical knowledge. He is incredibly well trained and personable. He explained all the risks and benefits to me very clearly. I would not pick any other physician to operate on me other than him. He is awesome.

Worst experience in my entire life! On my consultation visit, Dr. Rao was very pleasant and explained to me the breast reduction surgery he could do on me. I also wanted to know if he could remove some fat from below the breast. He said he could, but it will cost me. I accepted and scheduled the surgery. Unfortunately, I didn't get the expected results. He asked me to be patient, but after a few months, I still had a small breast high up on the right side and a large bread drooping on the left.
