I have been a patient for years he is a caring compassionate doctor, and always has time for you. Any negative reviews for this doctor are totally incorrect. He listens and works with you. He knows medication very well, and is very knowledgeable.

Dr. Rao's service depends on his mood and stress levels he is experiencing day to day. He can be unprofessional and dismissive at times which can take a patient aback. Bedside manner is suggested for this doctor as he is dealing with vulnerable people and cannot afford to treat them as second class citizens. I had a few visits with him and decided to move on to someone who can treat people with tact and dignity.
