Used to feel very positive, last 4-5 visits, don’t get answers, visits are spent with her staff, very little time with doctor. Try’s to appease patient with a lot of nothing, out the door she goes with a follow up months down the road. Too casual, If tests are suggested, she’ll submit normal routine, when you’ve been sick for a month, no urgency on her part! Have become unsatisfied, and lack of care!

Dr. Rao is the best! And everyone that knows her, loves her. She is kind, thoughtful and incredibly intelligent! I have learned so much about heart health, how to take care of myself and Dr Rao does not push pills, but encourages life style changes first. Her staff is on top of things and thoughtful as well!

You can trust your heart with Dr. Rao. She is a doctor because she wants to help her patients live a heart healthy life. She treats her patients like they are members of her family. She does not practice medicine routinely, she treats YOU. She listens to your needs and goes beyond to solve your problems. I have been blessed for over 20 years after my open heart surgery in Pennsylvania to have Dr. Srisha Rao care for me and my family. Edward Hritzo August 2017

While Dr Rao does not do surgery, she has a 5 star surgical team that supports her. She gets difficult things done because she is well respected and well likes by all the people she works with. She will spend as much time as needed in her office or in the hospital to insure that you are well taken care of.
