Baltimore, MD |
I waited for several months to see Dr. Rao as my new general doctor and she is terrible at best. Asks the same questions multiple times, does not take you or your concerns seriously, asked me for test results I provided her six weeks ago, and seemed very absent minded during the entire appointment. Would not recommend.

Ive been a patient of Dr. Rao for 10+ years and have often found her to be dismissive of my health concerns. Most recently I called to see on a Thursday to see if she would call in a prescription for pain in my tooth & would see my dentistl the following Tuesday. Didn't want to have to sit in the emergency room over the weekend. I know, I know..drug abuse epidemic and blah-blah-blah. There is also 10 yrs of patient files that attest to me never asking 4 this. #JustWantsMy $25. #NewDr.!!!!
During a work related trip, I experienced severe vomiting & diarrhea. I was admitted to the ER & advised to visit my primary care physician when I returned home. I immediately made an appointment to see Dr. Rao. When I went to see her, I was still experiencing the symptoms. She was indifferent to my concerns. I had to request blood work! She called me & claimed I had Hepatitis. I got a 2nd opinion with blood work, which indicated I NEVER had Hepatitis. I would NOT recommend Dr. Rao to anyone!
Very nonchalant & pretty unsympathetic towards my condition. I went to her when I was in a lot of pain & was told to simply take an Advil every day & go back to normal activities after a few days rest. After taking her advice, my pain worsened & I saw her again. She refused to send me for x-rays or an MRI to look further into the cause of my severe pain. I had to see another doctor to find out what was wrong & it required a lot of physical therapy. Do not go to her in an emergency situation.
