Dr. Rao is a great great doctor. I like that he tries new remedies. And I've gotten great results. Unfortunately his calender stays pretty busy and on several occasions now I've had to wait up to an hour and a half past my appointment time. Doctor Rap gets a 10/10. Scheduling gets a 2/10.

I had a very poor experience with this doctor but my review has not been posted. This doctor schedules numerous and unnecessary tests.
