Dr. Rao's Care Philosophy
I am an interventional cardiologist and researcher who has been at Duke for over 10 years. I usually see patients after theyve had a heart attack or if they are suffering from chest pain and have been diagnosed with blockages in their heart. I perform a minimally invasive procedure that opens up the blocked arteries and improves blood flow to the heart. My parents who were both doctors inspired me to become a physician. As a young child I was able to see firsthand the positive impact that doctors could have not only through treatment but interaction and compassion. A history of heart disease in my family influenced my decision to become a cardiologist. What I love most about my job is applying what we know from scientific evidence to treat each patient based on his or her background values and needs.
