Dr Rao is an amazing doctor. He will listen and find out exactly what is wrong and treat you the best way he knows possible. I come in every time with 3 young children and he hugs me 3 year old and even brings him Legos! Dr. Rao found my Lupus and now I know why I've been so sick and finally feeling better. 5 stars!

He is a wonderful doctor who takes the time to listen to you. The only bad thing is the wait time my appointment was at 10 it is 11:30 and still waiting.

Me and my family have been going to Dr. Rao for years. He is an excellent clinician, he takes the time to talk to you, and is one of the most caring physicians I have come across over the years. The fact that he spends time to discuss your physical and mental well being with you is refreshing. He owns the clinic, so he makes sure the physicians he employs have those qualities also. The guy is just first class
