Patient Comments (1)

New York, NY |
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...more
